How awful. New details are starting to emerge in the mysterious death of 13-year-old YouTube star, Caleb Logan Bratayley. According to a new report, his puzzling death was not by suicide or drug use. So what caused the sudden death of a seemingly healthy teen?
Young YouTuber Caleb Logan, sadly passed away on Oct. 1 at just 13 years old. Although his family stated the teen died of “natural causes,” a new report claims there’s more to his mysterious passing. This is so heartbreaking.
A new report states that Caleb suffered a “medical emergency,” according to TMZ. Their sources revealed that his death was not by suicide, there were no drugs, and there is no history of drug use. Also, the 911 call was placed around 7 PM on Oct. 1 and it was for a “medial emergency.” When medics arrived, they transported him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. More questions will be answered once the coroner conducts an autopsy as part of the investigation.
The news of his death came out on Oct. 2, when his mother, Katie, posted an Instagram pic of the star. “This has come as a shock to all of us. Words cannot describe how much we will miss him. His incredibly funny, loving and and wonderful spirit made us all fall in love with him as a YouTuber, friend, brother and son. We know you tune in to watch each day and eagerly anticipate new videos, but ask that you bear with us while we deal with this tragedy as a family. Please help us honor our baked potato.”
