Edgar Landaverde, known online as Callejas 503, had a strong social media presence with 82,900 followers on Instagram and around 178,000 subscribers on YouTube. Despite his popularity, the cause of his death has not been disclosed by his family.

Landaverde was buried on Saturday in Santa Tecla. His followers mourned his loss, with many sharing heartfelt messages of condolence. One follower wrote, "We will miss you in our homes, Callejas. You were part of our lives without even knowing you. Thank you for brightening our lives. God keep you in his arms and find peace now in eternal rest."
