HOUSTON – Alexis Sharkey went missing Friday and was found dead Sunday evening, according to a post on her mother’s Facebook page.
Authorities have confirmed Sharkey’s death, but her cause of death has not been released.
Sharkey had a distinct presence on social media, with more than 20,000 followers on her Instagram account of 844 posts. She appears to have been in hair and skincare product sales. Her social media beauty posts were a part of her brand.
Her Instagram account is full of glamour shots, her last posted about a week ago inside a bathroom while wearing a bikini. She wrote, “Good morning. Today I decided I’m moving to Tulum for the sinks and overall aesthetic. I’ve never been so obsessed with the vibe of a town in my life. Ps. I’ve heard from many people it’s different now and extremely over crowded. I’m here to confirm the rumors are true. BUT It’s still magical. For those who have visited what was your favorite place? So far we’ve been to Taboo, Gitano, papaya, Tora, and Papaya Playa.”
While it appears Sharkey was recently in Tulum, she went missing in Houston.
