What was TikTok star Eva Evans's cause of death?

Eva's death was first announced by her sister Lila Joy on Instagram. “Yesterday my family received news that our sweet, fabulous, creative, caring, hilarious Eva, my beautiful sister, has died,” she wrote. “After 24 hours, I still find myself in a constant cycle of denial and acceptance, so I know how unbelievable and hard to process this news will be … I wish I had Eva here now to refer to because she would have better words and know how to say what I don’t.”

Lila didn't offer any cause of death for her sister, and there have been no other reports suggesting exactly why Eva died. For now, it's best not to speculate. It's possible that more information about Eva's death could be forthcoming or her family might want to hold on to some semblance of privacy despite Eva's relatively public online persona.

Eva's content was a mixture of comedic and informative.

Like many of the most successful people on TikTok, Eva blended information and commentary as she documented what it was like to live in New York City. She had amassed more than 300,000 followers and had more than 13 million likes on her videos, which included one particularly popular skit in which she predicted where a person would live in New York based on their zodiac sign.

Julia Fox, who also posted a remembrance of TikTok star Kyle Marisa Roth following her death earlier in April, posted a video paying tribute to Eva.

“She was a TikTok star and a New York icon. I always saw her like a little sister and I knew she looked up to me,” Julia said in a video. “She was so young. Still had so much to do in life. But she lived life to the fullest.”

In addition to becoming well known on TikTok, Eva also created the web series Club Rat, which followed a young influencer who “attempts to re-enter the chaotic New York City dating scene after a candid video of her humiliating breakup goes viral." It seems like it must have pulled at least a little bit from Eva's real life, and it's now available to stream on Prime Video.

The tributes to Eva make it clear that she will be missed, both for the content that she made and for the person that she was. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this tragic time.
