Word of his death spread via Twitter and soon a picture of Burre’s slain body made its way onto the internet, almost as quickly as the tributes and condolences for the budding star.  Mya’s YouTube channel went viral overnight giving him notoriety, but all due to unfortunate circumstances.  Eerily, just days before his death, Burre left a comment on a deceased friend’s Facebook wall saying, “I’ll be there soon“.
