TikTok star Rory Teasley was allegedly strangled to death by his boyfriend.
Authorities were called to an apartment in Pontiac, Michigan on Thursday night. Docquen Jovo Watkins told them that he and Teasley had had an argument while playing Overwatch, but when they turned up they found Teasley unconscious and not breathing, a news release reads.
Teasley was pronounced dead at the hospital and police arrested Watkins and charged with homicide. He is being held without bond.
“We see far too often across the country these days when people resort to violence over trivial and insignificant disagreements,” Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a statement. “There is never a reason where violence is acceptable over a disagreement. Those that do so will be held accountable.”
