According to The Blast, Bichir discovered his wife at the bottom of the pool and intentionally weighed her body down to keep herself there.

Paramedics reportedly resuscitated the model at the scene and she was transported to the hospital but died eight days later.

In an Instagram statement, Bichir wrote: "On behalf of the Sherk and the Bichir Nájera families, it is with inconceivable pain that I announce that on April 20, 2019, our dearest Stefanie Sherk, my beloved and loving wife, passed away peacefully. It has been the saddest and toughest time of our lives and we don’t know how much time it will take for us to overcome this pain. Stefanie’s beautiful, angelical and talented presence will be immensely missed."

Sherk recently wrapped a movie scheduled to premiere in 2020 called, Grudge, alongside Jacki Weaver. She had previously appeared in episodes of CSI: Cyber and Valentine’s Day.
