“Colin Kroll, the co-founder and chief executive of the popular app HQ Trivia, was found dead on Sunday, apparently of a drug overdose, at his home in Lower Manhattan,” according to nytimes.

The police received a call from Kroll’s girlfriend asking for them to check on him.

An HQ spokesperson confirmed the death “with deep sadness,” according to bbc.com.

Colin became a big name in the tech world after co-finding Vine, an inoperative video looping platform that launched in 2012.

Vine launched the career of many social media stars.

Twitter bought Vine in 2012 but shuttered the platform in 2016.

He also co-founded HQ Trivia, a real-time trivia game that launched in 2017. It soared to the top of Apple’s free games charts in the beginning months of 2018, but over time began to lose its popularity.
