She continued: “We will be holding a celebration of Eva this coming Tuesday, 4/23, in the evening in lower Manhattan. Please DM me so I can get a headcount and will share the details.

“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.

“I am keeping this brief, so we can plan for the next few days, but you’ll be hearing a lot more from me on how much Eva means to me and just how different the world will be without her.”

The heartfelt post concluded: “All my love, Lila.”

Warning: the following contains a discussion of suicide.

Evans was found hanging in her apartment on Saturday evening by a friend who had a key to her apartment, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

The friend reportedly told police they didn’t know the TikTok star to be struggling with her mental health.

When paramedics arrived, they sadly pronounced Evans dead at the scene.

A TMZ source reports that there were no unusual injuries and there was no sign of a struggle. It was also alleged that Evans left a note behind.

Although Evans appears to have taken her own life, the official toxicology report is still pending.

The influencer’s father, Matt Baumgardner, passed away aged 63 in 2018. Evans disclosed in a personal story with Don’t Mind Me that her father had died by suicide.

Evans is survived by her sisters Lila, Zoe and Sofi, and her mother Heather, per E! News.
