Totten disclosed that a 17-year-old boy, DeMay, was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The Department of Justice disclosed that DeMay was found dead on March 25, 2022.

It said Samuel disguised himself using the Instagram alias “dani.robertts,” tricking Jordan into sending a nude photo of himself.
It further alleged that Samuel and his accomplices carried out the despicable ruse on more than 100 victims in U.S., adding that the defendants bought hacked social media accounts and used them to pose as young women to lure teenage and young adult males into sexual chats.
