RICHMOND, Texas (KHOU) — A popular Instagram model was killed in an apparent murder-suicide, according to Richmond police. The Fort Bend County Medical Examiner said 33-year-old Janae Gagnier was strangled.
Gagnier's body was found in her apartment Sunday when police were asked to do a welfare check. Police said they saw no signs of forced entry at her unit.
The man suspected of killing Gagnier was also found dead in the apartment at 5200 Pointe West Circle. Police later identified him as 34-year-old Kevin Alexander Accorto, from Florida. The medical examiner said Accorto killed himself with "multiple sharp force trauma."
Gagnier called herself “Miss Mercedes Morr” on Instagram where she had 2.6 million followers.
"Yesterday was the worst day of my life .. my heart is gone. My soul is gone," Gagnier's sister posted on Instagram.
Gagnier's sister said she and her mom checked on Janae last Thursday and she was having "an amazing time."
"I’m so happy we said we loved you. I’m so happy I got to see your face one last time," the sister posted.
Sometime after that, Accorto was killed.
"At this point in the investigation, it is not believed that there was a relationship between the suspect and the victim," police said. "At this point, this is being considered a murder/suicide and it is an ongoing investigation to determine motive in the case."
