“It’s not that I thought I would ever have to sit here and type for a very long time … but everyone deserves to know that my brother Corey died last night in a car accident with his drunk friend driving.” Jarrad La Barrie wrote.
Daniel Joseph Silva, a well-known tattoo artist, was arrested Monday night on suspicion of murder.
The Los Angeles Police Department said the 27-year-old Silva was driving fast in the 2020 McLaren 600LT around 9:40 p.m. On Sunday when he lost control, he ran off the road and hit a stop sign and a tree on the corner of Houston Street and Carpenter Avenue in Valley Village.
Silva’s passenger, whom the police identified only as a 25-year-old man, died in a hospital. An LAPD spokesman said Monday that the department did not name the victim because his immediate family has not yet been notified. Silva tried to avoid a disaster, but was stopped by people who came to the rescue, LAPD said.
Corey La Barrie recently turned to the publication of a video stating that he and his roommates, as well as authorities, were before they stayed home due to the coronavirus crisis.
His Sunday birthday celebration included a live broadcast on his Twitch channel. He shared his plans with followers of YouTube in a video posted on Saturday entitled “Removing this video in 24 hours ….”
Fans began to share tributes in the comment section of what has now become the final La Barrie video on YouTube.
