Lauren Black will be discussed in this article. We will tell you how her death was revealed after fellow online gaming colleagues raised an alarm about her absence.
Who was Lauren Black?
She was a 36 year old Irish woman who was living in Scotland.
She is a mother of two sons, who are said to be twins.
Lauren Black was from Belfast, for that is where her mother comes from.
She was discovered in her home in the Scottish town of Renfrew on Tuesday.
She was a lady who used to play video games in an online gaming platform.
It was Lauren Black inability to log into the game which prompted her fellow “gamers” to be alarmed.
They are said to have contacted the police in Scotland to find out if she was safe and okay.
It was this singular effort by her colleagues which led to the discovery of her body.
One of her online friends who played the game with her by name Eyal Elhadad is said to have called Scottish police after suspecting something was wrong.
He said: “Lauren and I have spoken every day for the last four years, so for her not to answer my messages or log onto the game was very worrying to me and other online family members.
“It was very out of character for Lauren. We exchanged messages on New Year’s Day and then there was no further communication.
“After not being able to get in contact for almost two days I had no choice but to call the police in Scotland and also her dog walker.
“I pleaded with them to check on her as we were all so worried. I just wanted to know she was okay.”

Her mother said :”I am beyond devastated by what has happened.
“Our family are just so glad we were able to spend Christmas with Lauren. Her health has been in decline for a while now and we think it might be as a result of Long Covid.
