Police in Austin, Texas are investigating the apparent murder-suicide of mixed martial arts fighter Kenneth “Italian Hit” Trevino, 26 and his former girlfriend model/bodybuilder Tiffanie Suzanne Perry, 23. Both were found dead in his Alexan Ribelin Ranch Apartment Complex at 11:40 am Sunday. Police were alerted to the scene after relatives of Trevino called to report he was despondent and suicidal over their recent breakup. Police would not confirm the cause of death but reported both had trauma to their bodies.
Perry, who had a profile on Model Mayhem under the name TSPerry stated in her bio that she is a full-time business student at Texas State. By her own admission, she classified herself as a hobbyist who had no interest in making modeling a career despite her 5′ 10″ height stating in her profile:
I model because I love to model. This is not how I plan to make a living nor is it how I pay the bills. Many times I have come across pictures that are striking, memorable, and sometimes provoke deep emotion and thought. If I can be a part of creating a photo of this magnitude then I’m satisfied.
Ron Natal, who photographed Perry in 2008, had this to say about her.
Tiffanie had an amazing soul. I will miss the talks over dinner about our futures and our goals. I will also miss her great smile and the gift she had of always making me laugh. Tiffanie is a person that I am truly blessed to have met and have in my life.
The 5′ 10″ beauty had posted this video of her bodybuilding competition on her profile.
