“Ink Master” Star Daniel Silva Arrested in Connection to Death of YouTuber Corey La Barrie


Ink Master tattoo artist Daniel Silva found himself in jail Tuesday (May 12) after being arrested and booked on suspicion of murder of YouTube star Corey La Barrie.

The two were involved in a deadly car crash Sunday (May 10,) when the sports car that Silva was driving at a high rate of speed crashed into a tree in the North Hollywood area of Los Angeles. According to reports, Silva attempted to flee from the scene but was later caught by witnesses to the crash. Currently, the police report seems to point to the possibility that alcohol was involved in the crash.

Silva is currently being held on a $2 million dollar bail.

La Barrie was rushed to the hospital but later died on what was, coincidentally, his 25th birthday.

“This isn’t something I thought I would ever have to sit here and type out for a very long time or what I wanna do right now but everyone deserves to know, my brother Corey passed away last night in a car accident with his drunk friend driving,” La Barrie’s brother Jarrad La Barrie wrote on his Instagram page.

He continued, “this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do i dont how I’m suppose to do this without you i miss you so much already this isn’t fair thank you for always being the best big brother i could ask for i love you so f***ing much life’s never gonna be the same without you R.I.P❤️ P.S say hi to grandad and grandma for me i love you.”

Silva appeared on season 10 of Ink Master, and also came home the winner of an episode of Ink Master: Angels. Both shows air on The Paramount Network.
