‘Popular and kind’ Twitch streamer, 30, found dead as tributes pour in

Tributes have poured in for a "popular, kind, and creative" Twitch streamer who was found dead shortly after going missing.

Theresa Steele, 30, also known as Tess, was found on open land near Wolseley Bridge, near Stafford, on September 14 after being detectives beginning a search for her the day before.

Officers from Staffordshire Police have supported her family since then and they are not treating the death as suspicious, reports Birmingham Live.

Now the creative's family have given a heartfelt tribute to her. Tess was an artist and writer, as well as a keen gamer who created videos on streaming platform Twitch, as well as YouTube.

Tess' sister-in-law Amy, 31, has said that her death was "very shocking and tragic".

A "celebration of life" event has now been organised in memory of Tess, as well as a fundraising page to help cover the costs, which has so far raised £1,100.

Amy, who is married to one of Tess's five brothers, and had known her for 13 years, said: "Tess was private and she was quiet but she was caring. She was well liked by people.

"We have had a lot of people say what a lovely person she was, which has been really nice to hear.

"She was very much into gaming. She was a gamer, she did streaming on Twitch and made YouTube videos of her stream.

"She was an artist, she liked to write, she was a creative person. There is a lot of artwork and writing that has been left behind.

"It has been very shocking for everybody."

On the fundraising page, Amy, who set it up, described her passing as "unexpected and deeply tragic for all who knew her".

Amy added: "We have chosen to have a celebration of life rather than a wake.

"It will be a celebration rather than a funeral. It has been very shocking and tragic, we are trying to celebrate her life rather than making it anymore tragic.

"It will focus on people coming forward and sharing their stories of Tess."
