Donzel Edward Owens Jr. â€ (September 10, 1947 - December 21, 2020 [aged 73]), better known online as PlasmaMasterDon (or simply Don), was a YouTuber known for his covers of popular songs, such as Conan Grays Heather and Jojis Slow Dancing In The Dark.
Don started his channel on August 17, 2012, and uploaded his first video on the same day. He started to post a variety of content on his channel, including vlogs.
On December 11, 2020, YouTuber and commentator Nick Crowley published a video on his YouTube channel bringing light to the fact that PlasmaMasterDon might be a recently registered sex offender. Nick Crowley originally found this theory in a post on the r/MorbidReality subreddit. The post on the subreddit linked two sex offender registry sites, both showing a person named Donzel Edward Owens, a 73 year old man from Ohio, who got arrested on August 19, 2019 for sexual imposition. His victim was an underage boy. He allegedly grabbed the boys genitals against his will.
The post theorized that Donzel Edward Owens and PlasmaMasterDon are the same person, considering their similar appearances. However, with further research, it can be found that Don states that his videos are by Don Owens Jr. and he had an old personal YouTube channel belonging to Don that had no content, and the channel is named Donzel Owens Jr. The sex offender registry site also lists Donzel Edward Owens birthdate as September 10, 1947, which is the same birthdate that Don lists in his about section of his channel.
Donzel Edward Owens car is a 2005 white Buick Century, which is coincidently the same car that PlasmaMasterDon owns, as seen in the video My Car 2005 Buick Century, a video where Don shows off his car. PlasmaMasterDon also made it clear that he lives in the same area as the convicted sex offender Donzel Edward Owens lives in, as he has vlogs of the town he and Donzel Edward Owens live in. PlasmaMasterDon also frequently visited parks and festivals in this area, making it likely that PlasmaMasterDon and Donzel Edward Owens are the same person.
Interestingly, four days after the post on r/MorbidReality was posted, PlasmaMasterDon announced on October 14, 2020, that his health was hindering his singing abilities and that he would likely step away from YouTube. The video was Dons very next video after being exposed as a potential predator, which is interesting.
These are the same things that PlasmaMasterDon and Donzel Edward Owens both have.
- Same eye color
- Same birth mark

PlasmaMasterDon allegedly passed away on December 21, 2020, due to a lengthy illness. However, this has been unconfirmed.
