Twitch Streamer Found Dead After Streaming for 24hrs
A Twitch streamer and avid World of Tanks player named Brian "PoShYbRiD" Vigneault was recently found dead last Sunday evening. Brian passed away during a nonstop 24-hour charity event, which Brian was hosting and producing his stream all alone from his home in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Brian's profile says he is already 34 years old. The story said that Brian stepped away from the live stream at 4:30 pm ET, a Virginia Police said that they were called to Brian's residence around an hour later to assist an unresponsive individual which was Brian and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Brian Vigneault regularly hosts charity streams on his channel, which raises as much as $10,000 for various organizations, according to his Twitch profile page. Brian's community learned of his passing in a chat room. After his absence, his activity light went on. Instead of Brian, however, streamers said that it was a police investigator who is using Brian's account. Brian's death was being investigated by the Virginia Beach homicide unit. Police said that this is a standard procedure for any suspicious death in that said community. The spokesperson said that there is no reason at this time to suspect a foul play in Brian's death.
Twitch tv began life as a precursor company called Justin.tv, in which it streamed different types of user-created content before consolidating. The company later shifted exclusively into gaming content before it was acquired by Amazon last 2014 for almost 1 billion dollars. Last December 2016, the streaming service unveiled its IRL, which was intended to "share content captured from [creators'] everyday lives." That change has greatly increased the type of content creators can share on the platform.
Wargaming.net, which was the publisher of the game World of Tanks, shared a statement saying that Wargaming is saddened to hear of the loss of streamer and tanker Brian Vigneault, aka 'PoShYbRiD,' which was a devoted player of the game World of Tanks and contributor to the Make-A-Wish foundation. they offer our most sincere condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.
