Sitting in his car, he told viewers he was going to kill himself, leading a family member to call the police, the LA Times reports.

After receiving the frantic call at 5:30 a.m., the cops desperately tried to reach Bowdy in time, Sgt Tiffany Ljubetic revealed.

But when they got to him, it was too late.

Facebook users were stunned, although some hoped the aspiring actor was just showing a show and it was all a hoax.

The shocking video was later removed by the social media site.

Bowdy, from Texas, was arrested on Thursday morning last week in nearby Santa Clarita on suspicion of sexual assault.

He was released on Friday after spending some $ 100,000 (£ 79,000) on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sergeant Janice Banks.

But he appears to have committed suicide just three days later.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has yet to rule on the cause of death, although officials said it was suicide.

Former teacher and basketball player Bowdy was building an acting career at the time of his death.

He landed a role in the 2016 film Prepper and also worked as an exotic dancer at the Los Angeles Hollywood Men strip club.

Bowdy is unfortunately not the first instance where Facebook’s relatively new live streaming tool has been used to broadcast something horrible.

Miami schoolgirl Nakia Venant, 14, streamed her suicide – with her host family in Florida – Sunday.

And 12 years old Katelyn Nicole Davis from the US state of Georgia hanged herself live on camera earlier this month, after claiming to be physically and sexually assaulted by a parent.
