Gaming YouTuber Etika found dead

RIP Etika
(May 1990-June 2019)
It is official, Desmond Amofa (also known as Etika) has been found dead. The NYPD took to Twitter to make the sad announcement a little bit ago to share the news. I really wanted all of the speculation I had regarding his disappearance to just be nothing more than speculation, but today it became a tragic reality. 

And after watching his video, I am 100% certain he took his own life. This is quite possibly one of the most tragic deaths of 2019 simply because when he was filming, no one could have possibly known nor imagined the battle he was fighting. 

In the end, he lost his battle. 

Mental illness is very much real and it is should never be mocked as being fictitious. If you are suffering from depression, anxiety and are contemplating suicide, please reach out to me. If you are struggling and battling with the thought of ending your life, you are not alone as there are millions of people just like you. You are not crazy, so don't think you are. And remember your life is too valuable and is worth more than you think.

THIS is a very caring post with GREAT information. Thank you for providing those numbers, Sarah, and offering your help. People who take their own lives are SUFFERING horribly. I'm just sorry that you can't say and do the same thing for poor Morgan Ingram. That beautiful brilliant girl was suffering too and made a terrible choice to stop it.
