The husband of slain Instagram influencer, Alexis Sharkey, has been found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Florida.

The body of Thomas Sharkey was located on Wednesday by law-enforcement authorities. It appears that Sharkey shot himself as authorities closed in to arrest him. He was wanted for murder in connection to the death of his wife. A warrant was issued on September 29.

Authorities established a history of domestic violence in the Sharkey relationship. Thomas did not want the marriage to end although the couple had been separated.

Alexis’ body was found naked on the side of the road in Houston on November 28, 2020, about two days after she had first been reported missing. An autopsy showed that the influencer had been strangled. After the discovery of his wife’s body, Thomas Sharkey left Houston and moved to Georgia. It was then determined that Thomas was the only person with the means and motive to kill Alexis.

A GoFundMe campaign has been established for Alexis’ memorial.
