Miss Mercedes Morr Parents & Wiki:– Miss Mercedes Morr was a social media influencer, American model, Instagram star, and social media personality. She was killed by a Florida man in her apartment in Houston, Richmond, Texas around 4:30 pm on 33 August 2021. (Source:

The man suspected of killing her, Kevin Alexander Accorto, 34, of Florida, was also found dead at the scene. He died from "multiple sharp force trauma," according to the medical examiner, who ruled his death a suicide. (Source: people.com)

"At this point in the investigation, it is not believed that there was a relationship between the suspect and the victim," Richmond police spokesman Lt. Lowell Neinast told The New York Post in a statement. Family members told KHOU that they believe that Accorto stalked Gagnier before killing her. (Source: people.com)

As news of her death circulated, so too did misinformation. Rumors spread that Morr had died of HIV/AIDS or COVID-19, or that she had been robbed and killed by dancers who had set her up. Perhaps the most widespread rumor, however, was that Morr had known her attacker personally, despite the fact that the police had explicitly stated otherwise. The most common narrative , propagated among YouTube tea (or gossip) channels, was that she had worked as an escort or sugar baby and had bilked money out of the wrong client. One popular YouTuber summed up the case as a cautionary tale about “the dangerous games that women play with these men and think they’re getting over on them, doing the things they do to finesse certain guys.” He labeled the video “dangerous simping,” a term used by many on the internet (particularly in the men’s rights community) to describe men who fall prey to the wiles of beautiful women.

To a degree, Jenae’s death was prime fodder for misogynists fostering ire towards women commoditizing their looks online. The fact that there was no sign of forced entry, which usually indicates that the victim knew their attacker, further fueled speculation (London believes Accorto attacked Jenae as she was coming out of her car from the street into the house, as she never parked in her garage). So did the “I was used for money” message from Accorto. “There are women who take money from men in this industry. Do they deserve to be killed for that? Absolutely not,” says Okolie. London believes people are making assumptions about Mercedes’ relationship with Accorto based on her status as a former dancer and Instagram model. “People already assume the worst about Instagram models — that they’re gold-diggers, that they’re users,” she says. “It made it easier for people to sell the story, instead of actually getting at the truth.” (Source: www.rollingstone.com)

They also found the body of 34-year-old Kevin Alexander Accorto, according to ABC 13. He is believed to be the suspect in Gagnier's killing. (Source: www.the-sun.com)

The Richmond Police Department on Monday identified the suspect in her killing as 34-year-old Kevin Alexander Accorto, whose last known address was in Florida. The medical examiner determined he stabbed himself to death. (Source: www.clickorlando.com)

Janae Gagnier, who was more commonly known on Instagram as Miss Mercedes Morr, was killed by Florida man Kevin Accorto over the weekend. The Richmond Police Department has confirmed that much. But an investigation into why he killed the 33-year-old in her suburban Houston apartment before killing himself has begun in order to determine Accorto’s motive. (Source: newsone.com)

Meanwhile, Gagnier’s family has been speaking out following the killing. Her father admitted he and his wife were worried about Gagnier’s “crazy” followers on social media becoming “obsessed” with her in part because she “kept trying to get more and more beautiful” and modeled sexy and revealing clothing like bathing suits and lingerie.

Other reports suggested Gagnier was killed during a robbery, but police said that was not the case. Neighbors in the Cortland Apartments complex where the model lived said the area is safe and a robbery, let alone a murderous one, would be an anomaly. (Source: newsone.com)
