Candice Murley Marystown, a popular TikTok content creator, has “unexpectedly” passed away at age 36, her family confirmed. Known to her social media fans as Candi, the deceased was the mother of one child, a boy. The cause of Marystown’s death has not been made public. The family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for her funeral, which they say they weren’t “financially prepared” for.
“This was very unexpected, and our hearts are torn apart. Candice was so full of life and always lived life her own way,” a statement on the GoFundMe page started by her sister reads. “We hope she is happy and free at last away from all her struggles and be her happy and carefree self forever in eternity.”
Marystown was further described as “entertainment at her best.” The influencer was famous for videos that showed her documenting her life.
The fundraiser, set for a goal of $15,000, has managed to raise over $17,000.
Fans and followers of Marystown are grieving the news of her untimely death. What, however, has simultaneously caught the eye of many on the internet is a video the influencer shared in the days leading up to her demise.
As per various reports, Marystown in one of her last TikTok videos lipsynced to audio that spoke about hearing “voices” in her head. “I hate it when the voices in my head go silent because then I don’t know what those f**kers are up to,” was reportedly how the audio went.
2022 has started off on a somber note for the online influencer community and their fanbases, taking on from the trends of last year. 2021 witnessed a spate of unfortunate influencer deaths, many of which were of young people. While the causes behind many of those losses remained shrouded in mystery, several influencers died due to natural causes and suicides.
Mental health was put in the spotlight prominently in the December death case of Serbian gamer and influencer Kristina Dukic who died at 21 following a prolonged period of being bullied online. Though the family withheld the cause of death, Dukic’s mother shared a social media message urging people to seek mental health assistance for suicidal thoughts or depression, should they feel the need.
