Last week, news would break that YouTube star, Cory La Barrie was tragically killed on his 25th birthday. La Barrie would pass after an accident in a supercar. News has now come out that the man that was driving the car might be facing some serious charges. This driver is somebody that a lot of folks might recognize as well. He goes by Daniel Silva.
Silva has quite a following in the tattoo community. After working his way out of poverty, Silva would become best known for his work on the show, Ink Master. Many contestants on the show have used the platform to rise to fame which seems to be Silva’s case. Although he didn’t win on the tattooing contest, he would win an episode of the show’s spinoff, Ink Master Angels.
This time, unfortunately, it isn’t his work that has him in the news. Instead, Silva is being charged with murder for his alleged involvement in the crash that killed the YouTube star.
Reports say that Silva was driving when he crashed the car, a 2020 McLaren 600LT, at a high rate of speed, on May 10th. The car was believed to have struck a stop sign and a tree before coming to a halt. People on the scene claim that Silva would begin to flee before they had stopped him. We’re sure that more details will emerge as investigators have the opportunity to dig deeper into the case.
As of now, there is no official report on if drugs or alcohol were involved in the incident or not. However, La Barrie’s family does believe that the two were drinking at the time.
If convicted, Silva might face a maximum sentence of 15 to life. Arrest records obtained by Entertainment Tonight say that he is being held on $200,000 bail.
La Barrie turned 25 on the day of the accident.
