The co-founder of the popular smartphone-based trivia game, HQ Trivia, Colin Kroll, was found dead at his New York apartment on Sunday, local media reported.

A New York Police Department spokesman told Ars that Kroll died of a drug overdose.

According to the New York Post, citing anonymous police sources, Kroll, 34, was found with marijuana and heroin near his body.

Kroll, back in 2012, also co-founded Vine, a popular video looping app that was quickly acquired by Twitter and later shuttered four years later.

On Sunday afternoon, HQ Trivia issued this tweet:

We learned today of the passing of our friend and founder, Colin Kroll, and it's with deep sadness that we say goodbye. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.
