Colin Kroll, the co-founder and CEO of HQ Trivia, has passed away after what appears to be a drug overdose, reports TMZ.
Kroll’s girlfriend called the police when she wasn’t able to get a hold of him early this morning. The police accompanied her to his home, where they found him dead in his bedroom surrounded by drug paraphernalia such as cocaine and heroin.
Kroll founded HQ alongside Rus Yusupov last year, though it has been steadily losing its once large audience. Before that, Kroll had worked for Vine as well as Yahoo.
Kroll was 35-years-old. Game Informer extends its sympathies to Kroll’s family and friends during this difficult time.
