Professional Call Of Duty player Maurice “Fero” Henriquez has died. He was 21.

The Florida Mutineers player’s death was announced by his family through his official Twitter account. The statement confirmed that Henriquez did not take his own life, nor did he suffer from depression, despite initial reports claiming the contrary.

“We appreciate everyone’s love and support. We would also appreciate privacy at this time,” his family added.

Prior to the statement, a supposed family member of Henriquez’s claimed that the Call Of Duty professional had been battling depression and died as a result of suicide.

The statement was later rebuked by Rasim “Blazt” Ogresevic, a close friend of Henriquez’s. He said that while the original claim was indeed from a family member, it was false.

The Florida Mutineers subsequently paid tribute to Henriquez on its official Twitter account and revealed the player’s cause of death as “multiple heart attacks”.

“The Mutineers family sadly confirms today the sudden passing of Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez from multiple heart attacks,” the organisation said. “This is an unfathomable loss for his family, friends and our Florida Mutineers team. He will be greatly missed everyday.”
