    Actress Stevie Ryan arrives at the DoSomething.org and VH1's 2013 Do Something Awards at Avalon on July 31, 2013 in Hollywood, California.

    YouTube star Stevie Ryan has died in an apparent suicide, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.

    According to the office's website, the 33-year-old died at a residence on July 1.

    The death comes just one day after Ryan posted a tribute to her grandfather who had recently died.

    "The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams," she wrote to her Twitter followers. "I'll miss you everyday, forever. I love you my Pa."

    Fans first grew to love Ryan with her impersonations of various celebrities as well as her YouTube page titled "Little Loca." In fact, her page received close to 15 million views total.

    Most recently, Ryan served as the co-host of "Mentally Ch(ill)." The project was described on iTunes as a "podcast about depression."

    During last week's all-new episode, Ryan addressed her grandfather's death before adding, "I'm just worried that this is going to send me into a deeper depression."
