The bodies of the woman, Jenae Gagnier, 33, and a man, Kevin Alexander Accorto, 34, were found in the apartment in Richmond after authorities were called to conduct a welfare check, police said.

Gagnier had 2.6 million followers on Instagram, where she was known as Miss Mercedes Morr. Her last post was dated Aug. 17.

Authorities said investigators believe Accorto killed Gagnier and then himself. Richmond police have not disclosed how they died.

“At this point in the investigation, there is NOT believed to be a relationship between the suspect and the victim,” the police department said in a statement Monday. Accorto was from Florida.

The Fort Bend County Medical Examiner’s Office will confirm the cause of death. The office did not immediately respond to messages requesting more information Tuesday.

Neighbors at the apartment complex said the deaths have left them shaken. Until Sunday, they said, the community, about 30 miles from Houston, felt safe.

“What I thought was safe, apparently, is not,” Roderick Shaw told NBC affiliate KPRC Houston. “We have so many rules and so many guidelines that I would never expect someone to violate our security and someone would be killed on this property.”

Another resident, Edna Swist, said, “We have the gates, the fence. You have to have a code to get in, a code to get out. I’m in shock.”
