The New York Post reported on Sunday morning that former Vine co-founder and CEO of HQ Trivia Colin Kroll has died at the age of 35 from an apparent drug overdose.

His body was discovered after his girlfriend called the cops because she was unable to get a hold of him, according to sources. The unnamed woman and cops went to his apartment in SoHo, where his body was discovered in the bedroom just after midnight.

Drugs like marijuana and heroin were found nearby, and he was declared dead at the scene according to a source. It was revealed by the cops that an envelope containing white powder was also recovered.

Colin was named CEO of HQ Trivia in September. He previously co-founded the now-defunct app Vine.
