An Instagram influencer was found dead in Houston this week, and his mother said it was “an absolutely bad game.”
Alexis Sharkey was announced by her husband on Saturday that she had disappeared after the 26-year-old Instagram model appeared with no plans for a friend. On the same day, Sharkey’s body was found naked on the side of a road in Houston, although Sharkey was not officially identified until Monday.
Her mother has no reason to believe that Sharkey’s death was an accident.
“The way to find it – my child would never do that to himself,” Stacey Robinault told KPRC, the Houston news station. “It doesn’t even make sense. It’s an absolutely bad game.”
– she continued. “For me, there’s nothing to suggest that it was an accident,” she said. “And to me, there is nothing to suggest but that this was done to him. And I believe that in my mother’s gut.”
There were no visible injuries to Sharkey’s body, Houston police said on Twitter on Monday, but there is no public autopsy report yet. The general circumstances surrounding Sharkey’s death are strange: with limited information, Sharkey’s social media posts were flooded with comments about prayers and peace.
Robinault found out he thought his gut was the worst when he heard that Sharkey had unexpectedly failed to make plans. “One of my girlfriends said,‘ I ran over to her apartment and she’s not there and we supposedly had to meet, ’” the mother explained. not so far from your device; [she’s] standing up with friends; [her] the husband does not know where he is, all this. All this arouses fear. “
Sharkey had about 26,000 Instagram followers at the time of his death, but that number has almost doubled since the death of the influencer became a virus on national news stations. The model had a degree in biology and planned to pursue a medical degree before becoming passionate about his Instagram career, his mother revealed.
Robinault hasn’t seen her daughter since Christmas 2019, and the couple hoped to meet again this year in Pennsylvania, Robinault’s home state. “We haven’t seen him since Christmas last year, and it was the longest we’ve ever lived,” Robinault explained. “We saw it in despair and we were excited to see it.”
Next to Robinault, Sharkey left her husband, Tom Sharkey, and two younger sisters. “We’re wrecked. We’re completely wrecked,” Robinault shared. “The family was just so destroyed – cousins, sisters, 13-year-old sister. It’s just so hard.”
