TMZ was the first to break the news. Noriega was found fully unconscious in a car park in Burbank California.

The LA medical Examiner talked about their findings and said to People and stated that the cause of death of the TikTok star is yet to be found out. He said, “that after an autopsy, a cause of death has not been determined and the medical examiner is requesting more investigation”. “Once the tests/studies come back, the doctor evaluates the case again and makes the cause of death determination.”
Just a few hours before the TikTok star died, he uploaded a video of him lying in his bed and captioned it, “Who else b thinking they gon die young [as f**k]”.
As of now, more details regarding the cause of death have been revealed but it is anticipated that his mental health issues may be the reason.
Cooper Was Vocal About His Mental Health Issue
Previously, Cooper went vocal about his mental health issues plus addiction. Even a few days before his death, he took to Instagram to announce creating a Discord group where he is going to share his experiences regarding his mental health and how he has been coping with it.
He explained, “I would like to use the influence I’ve been given to create a space built on spreading awareness and normalizing talking about mental illness. My goal is to eventually open a rehab where people aren’t traumatized at the end of their recovery, and where the staff members are trusted, people.” “One of the many things I’ve learned whilst struggling with addiction was that surrounding yourself with negative people will only bring you down.”
Back in January of 2021, he confessed to being close to attempting suicide and overdose. This incident forced him to think about his lifestyle and start choosing a clean path. In one of his social media posts, he stated he achieved the 90 days mark of being clean. He battled through his low points to obtain clarity and sanity. Cooper was very proud of himself and wanted to help others with their mental health journey. But he couldn’t battle any further.
