Instagram influencer Alexis Sharkey found dead along Houston Road

If there’s one thing Alexis Sharkey’s friends and family can agree on, it’s that the 26-year-old was always with her phone and never missed a message.

So when the Texas influencer with more than 21,000 Instagram followers – who had recently expressed her desire to divorce her less than a year old husband – went silent on the radio Friday night after spending Thanksgiving with friends, the alarm bell has sounded.

“I immediately knew something was wrong,” the 26-year-old’s best friend said on Monday, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal. “She has never been known to disappear or not answer her phone. I don’t think we’ve ever gone more than six hours without texting. “

Another friend, Mallory DeLise, said, “Lex would never run away and she always had her phone because that’s how we run our business,” referring to their marketing and social media work for the company. Monat hair care.

“Her life was social media – so her phone was her life,” added a third friend.

Their worst fears were confirmed on Sunday morning when the Houston Police Department announced the discovery of a naked body nestled in bushes on the side of a road about four minutes from Sharkey’s house. Hours later, authorities matched her DNA to the remains, ending a frantic two-day search for the 26-year-old which made waves on social media.

“It is with a deeply broken heart that Mike and I want to let you know that Lexi’s body has been found.” We cannot begin to thank you all for your love and the kind words you have addressed to our family! Stacey Robinault, her mother, wrote on Facebook on Sunday evening. “Please give us this time to mourn this incredible loss for our family and this world !!! We will miss you, my love !!!! “
