AceShowbiz - Candice Murley has passed away. The TikTok star, who had two accounts on the video-sharing app with a total of nearly 50,000 followers, died "unexpectedly" at the age of 36. Her sudden passing came just days after she shared an alarming video on her page.
According to an obituary posted by a funeral home in Murley's hometown of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the social media star died at her home on Sunday, January 2. While her cause of death has not yet been revealed, her sister, Marsha McEvoy, shared on a GoFundMe page set up to cover the family's funeral expenses, that her death was "very unexpected" and came as a "massive shock" to their family.
"We have received some news no one wants to hear, tonight we lost a huge part of our family, my sister Candice," so read the statement posted on the site of the fundraising that has since amassed over $17,000. "This was very unexpected, and our hearts are torn apart."
Marsha continued to praise her sister, "Candice was so full of life and always lived life her own way." She shared, "She was full of energy and loved to dance & listen to her music; can't forget about her Bingo, oh how she loved her Bingo."
"We just know she is dancing in the sky now, we all know how much she believed in Heaven, she is certainly there," Marsha continued. "We hope she is happy and free at last away from all her struggles and be her happy and carefree self forever in eternity. Perhaps the stars are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."
Known by most as "Candi," Candice gained TikTok fame for cooking and dancing videos, occasionally taking to the app to sing as well. "Most people knew her as Candi - famous for her TikToks. She had a fan base like no other, she was entertainment at her best, with her dancing and her cooking, and let's not forget her scatter singing with her mic," Marsha wrote.
Two days prior to her tragic death, Candice uploaded to her TikTok page, under the username @candicemurley, an 8-second video in which she mouthed audio voice from TikTok user Tara Danielle, "I hate it when the voices in my head go silent." The voice could also be heard saying, "Because then I don't know what those f**kers are up to."
