The 19-year-old struggling TikTok star Cooper Noriega's cause of death has been found.
Cooper Noriega, a TikTok star who was found dead in a Los Angeles parking lot on June 9, 2022, had been the subject of rumors for months. Now, the authorities have said what killed him.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner said that the 19-year-old died from the "combined effects of alprazolam, fentanyl, and lorazepam." This is being called an accidental drug overdose by the authorities. "Recent clonazepam use" was found in the results of an investigation.
Noriega had posted a video of himself lying in bed with the words "who else is thinking they're going to die!€ young af" just hours before he died. On June 4, the young star also told his Instagram followers that he was starting a Discord page "for mental health" because he had always had trouble with drugs.
In an emotional post, he said, "I've been struggling with addiction since I was 9 years old. You might think that's crazy, but that's the life I've been given." "I'd like to use the power I have to make a place where people can talk about mental illness without feeling weird about it."
At the time of his death, the social media star had more than 427,000 Instagram followers and more than 1.7 million TikTok followers. He was best known for posting short sketches and lip-sync videos.
On social media, Noriega's friends and family talked about how sad it was that their son had died so young. Harold Noriega, his father, wrote that "today has been a very hard day for my family and me." "We lost our beautiful 19-year-old son Cooper last night. He was loved by so many people and was truly the love of Treva, Parker, and my lives."
Sabrina Quesada, his most recent ex-girlfriend, posted a number of photos of her and the late TikToker on Instagram.
She wrote in the caption, "The light of my life, you're the best thing that's ever happened to me." "I'm so sorry my love. may we meet again."
