As reported by dexerto.com, Ohlana died due to an apparent suicide, though that has not been independently confirmed.
She started as a CS:GO steamer in 2016 and recently reached the milestone of 100,000 followers on the Twitch platform. Lately she streamed Valorant a lot and sometime did “Just chatting” streams.
Fans and friends started to worry for Ohlana when she had posted a series of concerning tweets and Instagram stories to her social media channels. In the last tweet she said “it’s not anybody’s fault” on July 6. A day before, she post a tweet read “depressed people struggle to reach out in fear the ones closest to them will have cops show up and forcefully confine them against their will. so they’re stuck feeling alone with their dark thoughts because they don’t want to be trapped where they just feel worse”.
Some had tried to reach out for Ohlana but it was too late.
The final words everyone heard from her was a confidence she wrote on Instagram before taking her life. She wrote:
“I have cried, loved, and shared so many great memories with so many of you who are still or used to be in my life. I thank all of you for letting me. I look back in awe of all the opportunities I have been given in my life and I am appreciative. From surviving off video games to travelling the world on an impulse… but most importantly all of the people I’ve met during this run.
Ive made my mistakes, I’ve taken my loses and I endured all of the consequences that were deemed valid. But sometimes it clouds my skies a little larger than it should. Some storms are heavier than others… and that’s okay. We all fight our own battles.”
She continued the note, ending by thanking fans and telling them, “It’s a beautiful day today. Go out and enjoy it for me.”
Until now, many of her fans and friends still shock at her death. She has been considered as “an amazing friend and one I always will cherish forever in my heart” and “like the older sister I never had”.
Ohlana is now the third Twitch streamer to have died in the last week after GTA V role-player Kenny ‘Blue622’ Tancredi passed aged 30 and Twitch veteran Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein took his own life aged 31.
The cause of Ohlana’s death hasn’t been officially confirmed.
Even when you’re having bad days, please don’t give up, everyone is here with you.
