The Atlanta Police Department released an incident report about Kevin, who emergency personnel found “unresponsive on the floor of his apartment” on May 5, 2022.
APD Report Says Officials Found Kevin Samuels Unresponsive
Though the report lists him as Kelvin in one instance, the APD has confirmed the identity of the man transported to Piedmont Hospital by Grady bus was Kevin. This report was first provided to TSR by Phillip Lewis.
A woman identified as Ms. Ortencia Alcantara told officials at the scene that she met Kevin on the night of May 4 “came to his apartment, and spent the night with him.” On the morning of May 5, the woman said Kevin complained of chest pains. When she attempted to help him, he reportedly fell on top of her and she then called 911.
The incident report states, “she requested the 911 operator to contact the front desk for a defibrillator to keep Mr. Samuels responsive until Grady arrived because she is a nurse.”
Kevin was often viral outside of YouTube, especially for his dating advice which he described as image consultation. As news of his passing broke, people on social media debated his previous comments. Between Thursday and Friday, his name was trending on Twitter.
All I can say about Kevin Samuels is if you spend your time disrespecting people in life, don’t be surprised at people disrespecting you in death. No matter how cruel it may be, the legacy you leave behind will be known by the fruit you bore while you were here.
