Influencer Miss Mercedes Morr was killed in what police believe to be a murder-suicide.
The 33-year-old social media model, born Jenae Gagnier, was found dead at her home in Richmond, Texas on Sunday, August 29, Richmond police confirmed. Officers initially responded to a welfare check at the apartment complex where Morr lived and discovered two bodies inside his house upon his arrival. The second was that of 34 years old Kevin Alexander Accorto, who was identified by police as the suspected suspect.
Morr’s cause of death was homicide by strangulation and concussion, the Fort Bend County medical examiner confirmed to E! New. According to the medical examiner, Accorto’s death was qualified as suicide by multiple violent traumas.
According to authorities, it is not believed that there was a relationship between Morr and Accorto and the investigation is underway to determine the motive.
Since news of his death, many of Morr’s 2.6 million followers have viewed his Instagram posts in disbelief. “Stop playing, we just spoke on Thursday,” Bow Wow commented on his most recent photo. “Don’t do me like that yo! Naaa.”
