Nintendo vlogger 'Etika' found dead in East River from apparent suicide

Nintendo vlogger'Etika' found dead in East River from apparent suicide 1
What just happened? The YouTuber known as Etika was found dead by the New York City Police Department on Monday. Etika, whose real name is Desmond Amofah, was reported missing last week after he had posted a video that seemed to be a suicide note.

The YouTuber uploaded the video to his alternate YT channel TR1Iceman on June 17, but it has since been taken down. The video was of Amofah expressing “suicidal thoughts.” The incident was not the first sign that he may have been struggling with mental illness.

Amofah’s primary channel was takedown back in October 2018 because he had been uploading pornography. Alice Pika, his girlfriend at the time, said that he had a mental breakdown and had been committed to a local hospital. Amofah later confirmed that this was true and claimed on a Twitch stream that he intentionally got his YouTube channel deleted because he was demonetized. He also came forward saying that he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

The NYPD acknowledged Amofah’s disappearance on June 20 when it tweeted his picture asking for help finding him. According to the New York Post, police found several of his belongings on the side of the Manhattan Bridge on June 22. Items included his wallet, cellphone, laptop, clothing, and his Nintendo Switch.

CNBC reports that on June 24, the NYPD was notified that someone had found a body in the East River near Pier 16. This location is only about a half a mile away from the Manhattan Bridge. New York police officials tweeted today confirming the body was Amofah’s.

Fans and fellow creators had been hoping that he was okay and tried reaching out to him. YouTube personality Daniel “Keemstar” Keem addressed Amofah via Twitter, urging him to get help and let everyone know he was alright.

The community mourns the loss with an outpouring of condolences and support for his family. There is also a movement to reinstate Amofah’s final video along with numbers to mental health and suicide prevention phone numbers.

It would also be nice to see his original channel returned and memorialized (minus the porn). It contained a ton of Nintendo-related videos that fans and newcomers would be sure to enjoy. However, that might not even be possible if YouTube completely deleted the content.
