Police believe that popular social media influencer Shauna-Kay Gayle, widely known as Lascooo, committed suicide in the apartment of a female lawyer in New Kingston, St Andrew. When news of the 20-year-old student’s death began circulating, several people speculated that Gayle’s girlfriend was involved.
However, reports from the Jamaica Observer state that police suspect that Gayle committed suicide somewhere between 8:00 p.m. on Independence Day, August 6, and 8:00 a.m. on August 7.
Gayle, who is from Beacon Avenue in Spanish Town, St Catherine, was reportedly left alone at the lawyer’s apartment. Later, she was found in a room with a bottle of rum and pills, along with a piece of electrical cord tied around her neck.
Gayle, who goes by ‘Legendary Lascooo’ on her YouTube channel, is well known for her fun pranks and acting out skits that are posted on YouTube and TikTok, where condolences are now being sent out by her fellow vloggers who share videos in memory of her.
Meanwhile, an investigation has been launched by the St Andrew Central Police.
