Today, police confirmed the death of Desmond “Etika” Amofah, a well-known gaming YouTuber, after discovering him in Manhattan’s East River yesterday evening. Amofah’s body was found two days after police recovered his belongings on the Manhattan Bridge. Last week, he had published a video that appeared like a suicide note.
Although he has been on social media for a few years, I only discovered him last year. I was aware he was having some mental health issues and a few months ago the NYPD had to detain him over him over his mental health. Hopefully his family and friends can mourn.
