TikTok star Cooper Noriega was found dead in a Los Angeles car park after sharing a final post about dying young on his social media platforms. He passed away at the age of 19.

Police officers inspected the scene after receiving an emergency call on Thursday from a man after finding the influencer unresponsive, TMZ reported.

The tragic news came just hours after Noriega posted a video while lying in a bed and captioned it with a breathtaking caption: "Who else b thinking they gon die young."

According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner, the death of the TikTok star is under the investigation.

Shortly before his death, Noriega launched a Discord to support those who are suffering from mental health issues.

A few days ago, he wrote on Instagram: “I’ve been struggling with addiction since I was 9 years old, you may think that’s crazy but that’s the life I’ve been dealt. I would like to use the influence I’ve been given to create a space built on spreading awareness and normalizing talking about mental illness.”

Furthermore, he continued to explain that he wished to “open a rehab” with “trusted” staff members to help all those struggling from those mental issues.

“One of the many things I’ve learned while struggling with addiction was that surrounding yourself with negative people will only bring you down,” the TikToker wrote.
