YouTuber Etika was found dead in New York's East River in an apparent suicide. - Reactions videos memes

The NYPD has confirmed Desmond Amofah, aka Etika, has been found dead from an apparent suicide. Etika was a popular YouTube streamer, focusing mainly on Nintendo games and products.

According to Know Your Meme, Etika has a past of posting threats of suicide. The first one dates back to October 25th, 2018, where he posted this to his subreddit

"And now, it's my turn to die. I love you all. Keep fighting for me, ok? I'll miss yall :* make the world better for your own kids, and REMEMBER TO STARGAZE. These last 6 years have been an HONOR." 

A second scare occurred on April 16th, 2019, when he posted multiple threats of suicide to his Twitter once again.

11 days late he came back on Twitter and apologized. 

However, just a few days later he started tweeting worrisome things at an extremely rapid-fire pace. Here are some examples:

After hundreds of Tweets, somebody got worried and called the NYPD on him. Etika tweeted out this video of the police standing outside of his house. 

He even live-streamed himself getting arrested on his Instagram. Here is a video of it, captured by Rod Breslau on Twitter.

On June 19, Etika uploaded a video to Youtube, saying that he was sorry to his fans for betraying their trust. He also stated that he was not suicidal during his previous incidents, saying, "in an attempt to be edgy, I fucked up my entire life."  However, at one point in the video, he started talking about games, movies, and technology that he will never be able to see, and that "the world will be better off without me," The video has since been taken down and his YouTube channel no longer exists. Here is a mirror of the video posted by EtikaMinecraftNetwork.

Just one day later Etika was reported missing, and on June 22, his personal belongings were found on the Manhattan Bridge in New York City, suggesting he may have jumped off the bridge. 

On June 24, the NYPD found a body floating in New York City's East River, just a half-mile from where his belongings were left. The body was identified as Etika just one day later.
