However, suicide is suspected, according to the outlet.

But his agent from the Los Angeles-based Sovereign Talent Group told DailyMail exclusively that she was shocked to hear about her client’s sudden and tragic passing that happened on March 8. The pair had been texting just 24 hours before he died from an apparent suicide. 

During their text exchange she said that he sounded like his positive happy self.

‘We were talking about a funny audition that I had for him that involved some type of petty fight. We laughed about it and he told me how he is a comedian at heart. I am just stunned. I don’t even know how to react.’

Also, Thomas’ cousin Meghan Rae told DailyMail that his family member did not die by suicide.

‘This was not a suicide. To report otherwise is a complete disregard to his character and who he was,’ she said.

Thomas, a popular figure on Instagram with over 120,000 followers had been signed to the London-based agency AMCK, and appeared in various runway shows, magazines, and commercials.

The native Floridian was also the founder and director of the contemporary art consultancy One Popsicle.

His final post, shared from a local spa, captured Thomas reclining in a plunge pool with the caption: ‘A cold plunge a day, keeps the doctor away.’

His muscular physique singled him out as the perfect candidate for underwear modelling.
