He was reportedly killed in a motorcycle accident, according to the obituary news site GHSFuneralServices.com.

The fitness instructor and influencer — also known as Big Wicked — was beloved by fans for his inspirational style of training and his outreach to the Los Angeles, California community where he lived.

And although he regularly shared personal stories and encouragement with his followers, the last video he posted for his more than 35,000 fans on Instagram was particularly emotional.

Molina is talking into the camera in the clip, as twilight darkens the scene around him.

“For all the homies and ones fighting for their lives behind the walls and to all those solid homies doing life much love keep your Head up,” he wrote in the caption.

Viewers can see a pier and the lights of boats behind him, however, and he says he is in a beautiful area.

“Sometimes in life, we take things for granted and we don’t realize that sometimes people don’t get a second chance,” the influencer starts the video

“Sometimes we don’t even know how fast things can be taken away from us,” he continued.

He said that he had time to reflect and realized that he could have been in another place “doing stupid things instead of being out here enjoying life.”

“Some of us behind those walls never ever get another chance to do these things and see these things,” he added.

Gotta keep on striving no matter what. Gotta keep on going. Some people don’t get that chance.

He mentioned being behind bars for 13 years, often in solitary confinement.

“I fell off, took a lot of things for granted but now I have snapped back out of it, trying to see at the same time that life is good.”

“Gotta keep on striving no matter what. Gotta keep on going. Some people don’t get that chance,” he finished.

MISSED BY ALL

Several people shared comments mourning Molina’s death after the announcement.

“May you rest in peace wicked now I’m going to speak a little bit you can hear it in his voice you could tell that he had fear if you look at his eyes he knew something was coming,” one person said in response to the clip.

“It’s almost like he knew he was leaving this place. How do you drop something like this and then pass away? This a trip rip of,” another wrote.

“Sometimes, they say you can feel it coming, whether it’s true or not, the fact that he dropped this 2 days ago almost proves it to be true,” a third said.

When the Strength Cartel announced Molina’s death, they left the following message.

“May Wicked rest in peace, and our deepest condolences go out to his family on behalf of the entire Strength Cartel family. Our hearts are with you during this difficult time.”

A photo of the bodybuilder looking at home at the gym was shared alongside the sad announcement.
