Drug overdose doesn't discriminate!
Colin Kroll, the 34-year-old co-founder of Vine and chief executive of the popular HQ Trivia app, was found dead Sunday morning in his New York apartment due to what is speculated to be a drug overdose. The police found what appeared to be cocaine and heroin in Kroll’s SoHo apartment after a woman believed to be his girlfriend called 911 and asked them to do a wellness check. The woman had reported that she was worried for his safety and well being. When police arrived, they found Kroll dead of what they suspected to be a heroin and cocaine overdose, however the medical examiner has not yet released an official report.
Colin Kroll’s father, Kroll said in an interview that his son had recently stopped drinking and did not have a drug problem, but that his son took drugs recreationally. A man with money, power, a business, a family that he was about to spend a 10-day vacation with for the holidays, died of an overdose after recreationally using drugs. Drugs do not discriminate, they do not know if you are addicted or just experimenting, they do not know if you have money or if you are poor, drugs are killing people. Colin Kroll’s father said that he was so smart and talented, he said he could only imagine what his son would be doing when he was 50, that he was capable of so much more. All he can do now is imagine.
