LOS ANGELES, Oct 6, (RTRS): Teen YouTube star Caleb Logan LeBlanc, part of the popular “Bratayley” family on YouTube known for posting humorous, wholesome daily videos, has died suddenly at age 13, his family and police said. LeBlanc died on Thursday in Maryland following a “medical emergency,” the Anne Arundel County Police Department said in a statement on Monday.

“Responding officers arrived and observed a juvenile male patient suffering from an unknown medical emergency.  Fire Department personnel transported the juvenile to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased,” the statement added. Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious and an autopsy will be conducted in Baltimore.

LeBlanc’s mother, Katie, wrote on her Instagram social media account on Friday that her son had died of natural causes but did not give details. “Words cannot describe how much we will miss him. His incredibly funny, loving and wonderful spirit made us all fall in love with him as a YouTuber, friend, brother and son,” she wrote.
