Popular YouTube and YouNow star, Hannah Stone, has tragically been found dead aged just 16.
Hannah, who was an avid vlogger on the site, a live-streaming social network, sadly passed away just weeks before her 17th birthday after a suspected suicide, reports Metro.
Born in New York, Hannah boasted a huge 375,000 fans on YouNow, a site which allows people to sing and chat to other like minded vloggers.
Recognised as a highly talented singer on the site, she was listed as an editor’s choice under the #singing hashtag.
One of her most popular songs, The 5quad Song, which was dedicated to a former group on the network, was viewed by over 72,000 people on YouTube.
Members of the 5quad group have since been posting heartbreaking tributes to Hannah in the immediate aftermath of her tragic passing.
Even YouNow themselves posted a message to Hannah, writing: ‘Deeply saddened to hear about Hannah Stone. Such a beautiful, talented spirit who will always be in our hearts. RIP angel’.
Hannah’s last tweet was posted just weeks ago simply saying that she was live on YouNow:
Prior to that was another tweet which read:
Hannah’s brother also posted this message telling everybody to pray for his sister:
