Huey has not yet been officially reported as having died from suicide. However, Jackfoort’s Instagram account suggested that the cause of his death was still unknown. “It has been confirmed from a few different sources close to his family that Huey took his own life by a self inflicted gun shot wound,” the post reads.
This claim is unsupported at the moment.
Huey also spoke about his difficult childhood in the past, including growing up in Stockton in California. His mother was verbally and physically abusive and Huey said that he was raised in a house that had four sisters and one brother. However, there was rarely food in the house. He said that he was 13 when he was placed in foster care, but was expelled for using marijuana.
Huey’s passing brought about the creation of a GoFundMe account to support his daughter, Huey (2 years old), and help with funeral costs. Already, the page has received over $20,000 in donations and easily exceeded the $15,000 goal.
