Famous Instagram influencer Mercedes Morr’s dad, Mark Gagnier, revealed the horrifying moment he discovered his daughter's dead body inside her own apartment.
As Radar reported, Mercedes — whose real name was Jenae Gganier — was found dead on Sunday in her Richmond, Texas home. Her dad went to her house to check on his daughter several days after she reportedly went radio silent, which was an unlikely event.
“I know my daughter and when I got to my daughter’s house and it was locked up and she’s not answering my phone call, which is not like her, I knew something was up,” Mark said.
He then went with his gut feelings, “kicking the door down” to gain access inside.
Mark first saw his 33-year-old daughter lying at the bottom of her stairs. He claims he thought his daughter just fell down the stairs before noticing “her clothes are all torn up and stuff.”
Mark then went upstairs, which led him to discover the suspected murderer Kevin Accorto with a knife in his neck, who was reportedly still alive.
“He was twitching, he was gurgling,” recalls the influencer's dad.
The OnlyFans model’s father revealed he also saw writings all over the wall upon finding the alleged killer in her daughter’s room which reportedly read, “I was used for money” and “I wish I never loved her.”
“I could look in the room and there’s writings all over the wall, “ he said.
He also then claimed to have called the police himself after the alleged murderer was found.
“I just couldn't do nothing but stand there and call the police. That’s the true story and that’s what I want out,” the heartbroken dad further added.
According to reports, the social media model was strangled to death by Kevin who investigators believe has no relationship with the victim other than being a crazed follower.
Mercedes’ father said he worried about her daughter’s fame and warned her of potential risks.
“My monthly conversation is, Jenae you have all these followers. Some probably because they love you some because they like your look, some more crazy, and some obsessed, ” Mark confessed to a local news KTRK-TV.
Mercedes had a large following reaching over 2 million on Instagram. Her followers included high-profile stars such as Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, and Megan Thee Stallion.
According to officials, the case is still under investigation.
