Markeice Brown allegedly took his life moments after posting a lengthy text and chilling video on Facebook.

In one of his Facebook videos, Brown talks about his passion for fashion design. Unfortunately, his dream will no longer be possible to achieve after he took his life.
In his last video, he says he couldn’t take it anymore after his girlfriend died, especially because he was being blamed for her death.
Some of the posts, which are presumably from his late lover’s friends on Facebook, suggest that Brown had something to do with the demise of Mercedes.
Brown himself reveals that beside the harassment he was receiving on Facebook, he was also forbidden from attending his lover’s funeral.
It has also emerged that the young couple may have been expecting a baby at the time of their deaths. Brown claims that not only did he lose his sweetheart, but also his unborn child.
People are still wondering and asking what could have gone wrong that pushed the young couple to end their lives. Details surrounding their deaths are still scanty.
