Frank Ocean’s Mom Mourns Son Ryan After Fatal Car Crash

Katonya Breaux, the mother of Frank Ocean and the late Ryan Breaux (also named by outlets as Ryan Moore), mourns Ryan’s death after he was killed in a car accident early Sunday.

Wednesday on Instagram, Katonya posted a sweet photo where Ryan, 18, hugs her as they embrace cheek to cheek.

Though she did not write a caption, a large number of social media users offered her their condolences in the comments section.

Per a press release from the Ventura County’s Sheriff’s Office, authorities responded to a single-vehicle traffic collision in Thousand Oaks, California, and found a car “engulfed in flames.”

The two occupants of the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene by the Ventura County Fire Department.

The Ventura County medical examiner’s office later confirmed to People that the victims were Ryan and his former Oaks Christian High School classmate Ezekial Bishop, 20, who was driving.

Police say both passengers died from blunt-force injuries when their car crashed into a tree at a high speed.

Earlier this week, a GoFundMe was set up to help Ezekial’s sister Faith.

“The family is not in need anything at this time but would greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers. This memorial is set up to honor Ezekial’s dreams and hopes of one day caring for his baby sister, Faith,” organizer Bridgette McComb wrote. “All monies will go to fund Faith’s future as we keep Ezekial’s dream alive.”

As of this writing, the page has raised over $16,000.

Per the Acorn, Ezekial — who was a junior at California State University, Northridge — lost his father, Dijon Bishop, to a car crash in January 2015.

Ryan — who had appeared on his brother’s 2016 song “Futura Free” — also has a sister, Ashley “Nikkii” Ellison.

Ryan and Ezekial will be missed.
