Janae Gagnier — who was known as Miss Mercedes Morr online — was found dead on Sunday, August 29, in Richmond, Tex., after police reportedly responded to a welfare check. According to Khou11, officials said that they saw no signs of forced entry.
A 34-year-old man named Kevin Alexander Accorto was also found dead in the home, Click2Houston reported. Accorto is believed to be a suspect in the 33-year-old's death. Police do not think there was a relationship between Accorto and Gagnier.

The brunette beauty had more than 2.6 million followers on Instagram. Rapper Tory Lanez reportedly paid tribute to Gagnier and posted a photo of her to his Instagram Story with the caption "Rest in peace Queen."
Fans took to the comments of Gagnier's final Instagram post to pay tribute.
"This is unbelievable 😢🙏🏽," one user wrote.
"Awwwww Mercedes… RIP 💔 sending peace & protection vibes to everyone that reads this ✨," another commented.
"My heartbroken 💔 I can’t take this one baby girl. Saying RIP next to your name just ain’t right. I love you," a third fan lamented.
The influencer lived at the Cortland Apartments located at 5200 Pointe West Circle. Neighbors told KTRK-TV that the apartment complex is normally safe and quiet. "It would be kind of surprising to know that this was an intruder, someone that broke into the house because I wouldn't think that would happen here," resident Field Ledford said.
