The bodies of the woman, Jenae Gagnier, 33, and a man, Kevin Alexander Accorto, 34, were found in the apartment in Richmond after authorities were called to perform a welfare check, police said.

Gagnier had 2.6 million followers on Instagram, where she was known as Miss Mercedes Morr. Her last post was dated Aug. 17.

Authorities said investigators believe Accorto killed Gagnier, then himself. Richmond police have not disclosed how they died.

"At this point in the investigation, it is NOT believed that there was a relationship between the suspect and the victim," the police department said in a statement Monday. Accorto was from Florida.

The Fort Bend County Medical Examiner's Office will confirm the causes of death. The office did not immediately respond to messages seeking more information Tuesday.

Neighbors in the apartment complex said the deaths have left them shaken. Until Sunday, they said, the community, about 30 miles outside Houston, felt safe.

"What I thought was safe, it seems, is not," Roderick Shaw told NBC affiliate KPRC of Houston. "We have so many rules and so many guidelines I would never expect someone to breach our security and someone be murdered on this property."

Another resident, Edna Swist, said: "We have the gates, the fence. You got to have a code to get in, a code to get out. I'm just in shock."
