RICHMOND, Texas (KTRK) – A popular houston instagram model was found dead in a Richmond apartment in what investigators believe was a murder-suicide.

This happened Sunday afternoon at the Cortland Apartments located at 5200 Pointe West Circle.

The model, who has been identified as Jenae Gagnier, 33, also known as Miss Mercedes Morr on social media, was found dead inside.

Police said a man, whom investigators believe to be the suspect, was also found dead.

According to an update released by Richmond Police on Monday evening, the man has been identified as Kevin Alexander Accorto, 34.

Officers believe the incident may have been a murder-suicide, but no further details have been released. Police say investigators do not believe there was a relationship between Gagnier and Accorto.

Neighbors inside the Cortland Apartments told ABC13 that the resort is quiet and safe.

“It would be a little surprising to know that this was an intruder, someone who broke into the house because I don’t think that would happen here,” said resident Field Ledford.

The official cause of death for Gagnier and Accorto has not been released.

Gagnier had a large following on multiple social media platforms, including 2.6 million people on Instagram alone.
