Sources told TMZ that Cooper was not in a vehicle when he was found and there appeared to be no signs of trauma to his body.
Cooper had amassed 1.77 million followers on TikTok and 427,000 on Instagram, where he listed himself as a fashion model.
Last week he was a guest on the Barstool’s BFF podcast with Dave Portnoy, Josh Richards and Bri Chickenfry.
On June 5, Cooper revealed that he had started a Discord group solely to discuss mental health.
In his bio, Copper wrote: ‘I’ve struggled with an addiction since I was 9 years old, you may think that’s crazy, but that’s the life I’ve been given.
“I’d like to use the influence I’ve been given to create a space built on spreading awareness and normalizing talk about mental illness.”
He also added that his dream was to open his own rehabilitation center for people who struggled just like him.
“One of the many things I learned as I struggled with addiction was that you only go down when you surround yourself with negative people,” Cooper wrote. “That’s why Discord aims to bring us all together and create a safe space where people can vent and help others through their tough times.”
Discussing his struggle with addiction, Cooper said his goal was to open rehab to help others. He is pictured on June 5, where he shared access to his mental health Discord
