Mcskillet was identified as 18-year-old Trevor Heitmann, most have not heard of him but his channel does have around 880,000 subscribers currently. He even made a video showing off the car he used to kill himself and the two victims.
Heitmann drove his $200,000 McLaren sports car head-on at 100 mph into a family's minivan taking his own life and killing a 43-year-old woman and her 12-year-old daughter. Police say his YouTube channel mostly discussed video games.
