Caleb Logan Bratayley from Morejstu’s death that shocked the internet

Caleb Logan Bratayley’s sudden death in 2015 came as a shock to the millions of people who watched him on both the Morejstu and Bratayley family YouTube channels.

Caleb Logan Bratayley passed away in October 2015 at 13 years old.

The YouTuber had gained prominence as part of the Morejstu YouTube channel, as well as on his family’s channel, Bratayley.

The news was shared on Caleb’s Instagram page, stating, “Yesterday at 7:08 PM, Caleb Logan Bratayley passed away of natural causes. This has come as a shock to all of us. Words cannot describe how much we will miss him. His incredibly funny, loving and wonderful spirit made us all fall in love with him as a YouTuber, friend, brother and son.”

The family thanked fans for their continuous love and support, and assured them that they would be back on YouTube when they felt that they were ready to continue Caleb’s legacy.

The death announcement left the public in shock, as many could not comprehend how a 13-year-old boy with no underlying conditions could pass away so suddenly.

After receiving many questions about the cause of his death, Caleb’s family shared another post on his Instagram page four days later, providing clarity on what happened.

The Bratayley’s stated, “Caleb’s death has raised many questions about how and why this could happen to a seemingly healthy boy. Sadly, tests have confirmed today that Caleb passed away from an undetected medical condition.”

In November 2015, Caleb’s mother, Katie Bratayley, updated the public on the findings from his autopsy, stating that he had passed away from a heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, which was undetected in his annual check-ups. She added, “Caleb didn’t have any symptoms, so the doctor said there was nothing we could have done differently. The girls’ hearts were just recently checked and thankfully look the way they should right now.”

The Bratayley’s returned to YouTube in 2016, and focused on using Caleb’s sisters, Jules LeBlanc and Hayley LeBlanc, as the stars of the channel.

Katie Bratayley also shares tributes to her late son on her Instagram page, with her latest post being in October 2020, in commemoration of the five-year anniversary of his death.
