Model and social media influencer Jeff Thomas has died in a suspected suicide after falling from an apartment balcony, sources claim.
The 35-year-old man’s body was discovered outside a Miami apartment complex on March 8 and an official cause of death has yet to be established pending an autopsy.
But sources believe Thomas, a popular Instagram figure with more than 120,000 followers, took his own life after throwing himself from the balcony of an apartment in the Florida city. TMZ reports.
The Miami-based actor and model is signed to London-based modeling agency AMCK and had previously appeared in a number of commercials and runway shows.
His muscular physique marked him out as the perfect candidate for underwear modeling, while his Instagram account featured numerous images and videos of the fitness enthusiast showing off his body on the beach.

On March 6, two days before his body was discovered, Thomas shared a photo of his latest tattoo: the single word “Resilience” written across his lower right arm.
