Desmond Amofah, a YouTube gaming vlogger, known online as “Etika,” was discovered by New York police on Tuesday. He was 29.
Amofah posted YouTube videos, and live-streams concentrated on Nintendo games and other titles. His EWNetwork channel on YouTube has more than 840,000 subscribers, according to Social Blade.
A body, later verified to be Amofah’s, was discovered in the East River on Tuesday morning, according to New York law enforcement. Police had been hunting for him since June 20, after Amofah posted a video on YouTube reviewing suicidal thoughts (which has since been removed).
The New York Police Department authenticated in a tweet that Amofah was found deceased.
