WHO WAS HE?

The charred remains of the SUV could still be seen after firefighters managed to put out the flames. All three victims died at the scene from blunt force trauma.

Heitmann was quite a popular Youtuber; he had almost a million followers and specialized in the video game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He made most of his money selling graphic visual designs, also known as skins, for the virtual weapons.

The visual enhancements had no effect on gameplay whatsoever and, on contrary to popular belief, were only meant to be aesthetic.

The 18-year-old also made money with his gaming videos, as well as corporate gaming sponsorships.

HIS FOLLOWERS WERE CAUGHT BY SURPRISE

Heitmann's death came as quite a shock for those who knew him. not only in real life but also online. Some of his followers took to social media to remember the young man for who he was and what he did.

While a few sent their prayers and condolences to the family, others refused to believe that it was real, even begging for it to be a hoax. Unfortunately, it wasn't and Heitmann's death was confirmed by Shnaxler, a Twitter user who claimed to be the late Youtuber's best friend.
