Dead Instagram model Alexis Sharkley, 26, ‘was filing for divorce from husband’ before her naked body was found

DEAD Instagram model Alexis Sharkley, 26, was reportedly filing for divorce from her husband before her naked body was found.

The newlywed went missing in Texas on Friday after she reportedly had an argument with an as yet unidentified person, her mother Stacey Robinault said.


Her body was found early on Saturday morning a few miles from her apartment by a garbage truck driver who spotted a pair of feet sticking out from under some bushes.

Friends had last heard from her at around 6pm on Friday, and after that phone calls began going straight to her voicemail.

The influencer – who had 21,000 followers on Instagram – had no visible injuries and her cause of death hasn’t yet been determined.

Sharkley often posted about her husband Tom, who she married last year, but a friend said the pair were having issues, according to KHOU11.

"Recently, she opened up to us about it and divorce was being filed," Tanya Ricardo told the outlet on Monday.

"She was a very private person. She didn’t share a lot about what was going on at home."

Following Alexis' death, Tom called "her the most amazing woman" in a tribute on social media following the discovery.

Sharing pictures of Alexis in her wedding dress, Tom wrote: "Never seen or felt such beauty! You are my world!

"You made life so incredible! Made sense of my existence! My purpose! And showed me how to truly love!"

Sharkey, the oldest of three sisters and a biology graduate, had moved to West Texas and become a full-time social media influencer.

She then moved to Houston with her husband in January.

Sharkey's mother, Stacey Robinault, said that "nothing" about the circumstances of her daughter's death suggested it was accidental or anything "other than that this was done to her."

“The way in which she was found – my child would never do that to herself," she said.

“That doesn’t even make sense. That is absolutely foul play."
