Was Her Boyfriend Responsible For Her Death?

Although Evans’ sister, Lila didn’t reveal the cause of Evans’ death, it has been reported that she took her own life. Many of her fans on Reddit have talked about her possible suicide, but it has yet to be confirmed if she killed herself.

Many have speculated her love life could have led her to end her life. However, it is not known who she was dating before her death, and there is no clear evidence to suggest that her unidentified boyfriend, or anyone else, was responsible for her death.

Meanwhile, back in June 2023, Evans shared her personal experience with a man she dated who turned out to be living under a false identity. In a TikTok video posted on June 17, Evans revealed that her ex-boyfriend, whom she referred to as “Kyle,” had a completely fabricated persona. She said she dated him for about four and a half months before discovering that he actually had a wife and a son, and his real name was not Kyle.

Evans detailed in her video that throughout their relationship, she sensed that something was amiss, but she and her friends humorously speculated that he might be a spy due to the mysterious nature of his actions and inconsistencies.

This ex-boyfriend, known to her as Kyle, is actually Aryeh Dodelson, who was identified in an investigation as a 35-year-old man who had previously been a respected figure in his community and falsely presented himself as having a glamorous life with celebrity connections and a luxurious residence.

Evans Previously Talked About Mental Health

Evans previously shared a poignant message about the suicide of her father just before Thanksgiving 2018, urging the public to prioritize mental health. Her father, who had battled with his mental health, left a devastating note at his South Carolina home, advising his girlfriend to call the police rather than enter.

Evans recalls the anxiety-filled years of trying to prevent her father’s suicide since she was seven. She stressed that his lack of self-love and inability to handle personal demons were the real causes of his death, despite being loved by many.

In her message for Suicide Awareness Month, Evans emphasized the importance of seeking help before reaching a crisis point. She advocates for proactive mental health care, underscoring the need for individuals to develop coping mechanisms to navigate life’s challenges. Evans hopes her story will inspire others to take mental health seriously, helping to prevent future tragedies.
