16-year-old YouNow star and singer Hannah Stone has passed away on November 1st, 2017, just two weeks before her 17th birthday.
Hannah was known for her angelic voice and beautiful spirit. She often went on YouNow to sing and talk to her fans. She was also known for singing the “5quad song”, and members of the group were heartbroken.
Last month, Hannah decided to take a social media break. However, news has come to light that Hannah has passed away today. The reason and cause of Hannah’s death appears to be suicide.
Hannah Took a Break from Social Media in October
At around mid-October, Hannah disappeared from social media. At first, she revealed that she was going on “do not disturb mode”. Here was her last Instagram post on October 14th.
Her last real tweet was on September 17th. She tweeted out a cryptic apology about being sorry.
I'll never be able to describe how sorry I am
