8 months pregnant YouTube star 'blue fairy' found dead in apparent drug overdose

Internet/YouTube celebrity, 25 year old Sharissa Turk who got into the limelight after starring in a rap video as the 'Blue Fairy' of prescription pill addiction has been found dead from an apparent drug overdose.

Turk, who was eight months pregnant, was discovered unresponsive by her bf who got to their Staten Island home around 3pm on Tuesday and found her lying unconscious in the hallway and called the police. When paramedics got there, they pronounced her dead at the scene, reported Staten Island Advance.
Turk had shared an ultrasound image of the baby girl she was expecting accompanied by the hashtag '#‎cantwaittomeetYOU‬.'

Turk played a pixie dancing around with blue wings and a wand, and blowing ‘fairy dust’ at the camera as she and her group rapped about prescription pill addiction in Staten Island, which they call 'painkiller paradise'.

The amateur rap video went viral in early 2013 after Turk was arrested in a massive drug sweep and charged with selling Oxycodone to undercover officers.
The sting operation resulted in 32 arrests across Staten Island and netted hundreds of narcotics, as well as three handguns, a shotgun and $17,000 in cash.

Turk pleaded guilty to criminal sale of a controlled drug, but her case was sealed and dismissed after she completed a court-mandated treatment program involving regular drug testing and a 6pm curfew.
She was arrested and jailed again in August 2015 on suspicion of criminal possession of a controlled substance, she pleaded guilty and was sentenced to only two days of community service.

Her death is still being investigated to find the exact cause.
