A social media influencer live-streamed his own suicide after attacking his naked girlfriend with an axe.
Angel Hernandez Grado, 28, allegedly tied his partner up, sexually assaulted her, strangled her and hit her in the head with an ax, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Following the abuse, the race car enthusiast, known by his screen name S2K Wya, lead police on a chase through California after she managed to escape to alert authorities.
The brave woman suffered two broken ribs, swelling to her face, and bruises all over her body and was told he would kill her if she called the police.
Officers were given a description of the suspect and his white BMW X5, which they spotted about 1:30 a.m. on Interstate 15.
Grado repeatedly stopped and started driving again as authorities tried to make him pull over, police Lieutenant Carmelin Rivera told the Union-Tribune.
The driver, who told a cop over the phone that he was armed, was finally stopped with the help of the Orange County sheriff’s SWAT team, which used armoured vehicles to block him.
Grado, holding a gun to his head, exited his vehicle and recorded his final moments on an Instagram Live to his 50,000 followers.

In his final words, he spoke of his son, saying: "I love my boy. I tried my hardest but I f****d up.
"I am now weak. I just f****** hate my life, bro. I’m just tired of this f****** life, f*** the police.
"They got all my tires but f*** the law. I’m above the law."
