According to KTRK, police were called to Gagnier’s Richmond apartment on Sunday to perform a wellness check. Responding officers were met by Gagnier’s father, who entered the residence with officers and discovered his daughter’s body.

Police have not disclosed a motive, but they said there was no indication of forced entry into Gagnier’s home. Meanwhile, the slain woman’s sister claimed that Gagnier’s killer had been stalking her for some time.

“She wasn’t robbed. It was just a stalker from outta state who’d BEEN stalking her,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

Reports indicated that Accorto was from Florida. It is unclear how long he allegedly stalked Gagnier.

Gagnier ran an OnlyFans account in addition to an Instagram that had 2.6 million followers.

According to KPRC, police are investigating Gagnier’s death as a murder-suicide. They are in the process of confirming a motive in this case.
