REPORT: Co-founder of HQ Trivia and Vine found dead from suspected drug overdose

Colin Kroll, co-founder of Vine and co-founder and CEO of HQ Trivia, has died at the age of 34 from an apparent drug overdose.

NYPD officials told The Daily Beast that officers were called by Kroll’s girlfriend to conduct a welfare check.

Upon entering his home, Kroll was found face-down in his bed, unresponsive and unconscious in his SoHo neighbourhood apartment.

Police also found drugs and drug paraphernalia on the scene, which has caused officers to investigate his death as a possible overdose.

An additional officer told the news outlet that the drugs recovered near Kroll included envelopes of white powdered substances believed to be heroin and cocaine.

Kroll was the CEO of HQ Trivia, an app where players can play daily trivia games at no cost with the chance of winning prize money.
