Amofah, 29, began making YouTube videos in 2012, and since then, gained a following of over 800,000 fans across YouTube and Twitch. Last October, on Reddit, he made references to suicidal ideation. In April, police detained Amofah after he threatened suicide in his apartment. The incident resulted in Amofah’s admission into a hospital. In May, Amofah had an altercation with a security guard or police officer that led to another hospital visit.

Last week, Amofah published a video, which YouTube took down, apparently saying goodbye to fans. “It was a fun life. I had a great time. It was great. But for it to be cut so short—it’s fucked.” Friends and family had been unable to contact Amofah since before the video was posted. His family were not able to reach Etika since before the video was published.
