A tragic disappearance. This Thursday, June 9, the young Cooper Noriega was found dead in a parking lot of a shopping center near Los Angeles. Before his death, he had around 1.7 million subscribers on TikTok, a popular platform for young people. According to the Los Angeles medical examiner, investigations are underway to determine the causes of the death of the young man of 19 years.
According to the medical examiner’s office, contacted by American media, further research is still necessary when an autopsy has already taken place. This disappearance is all the more enigmatic since the young Cooper Noriega had posted a video the day before in which he asked his fans “Who else thinks he’s going to die young?”.
At the beginning of June, he also confided that he had used hard drugs before the age of 10. In an American podcast, he mentioned in particular the taking of Xanax, cannabis and nicotine. “Nine years old is crazy. I didn’t even know I was playing GI Joe when I was 9”, he said. In addition, he had confirmed that he had recently broken up with his girlfriend, also a TikTok star, after a two-year relationship.
