Sharkey’s mother originally told a local outlet that the social media influencer had left her home after having a fight with her husband and had not taken her vehicle, according to the New York Post. Her husband, Tom Sharkey, claimed there was no rift between the two despite her friends saying she had been planning for divorce, the outlet reported.
Sharkey’s mother also claimed that she had to “fight” Tom in order to see her daughter’s body.
The Houston Police Department told the outlet that no arrests have been made and no charges had been filed yet. The investigation remains open, the outlet reported.
