Missing Justin Bieber Lookalike Is Reportedly Found Dead in Motel Room
Tobias "Toby" Strebel, who spent $100,000 to look like Justin Bieber, has reportedly been found dead.
The 35-year-old was reported missing on August 18. He was last seen in West Hollywood, California, according to LAPD officials.
He was found dead in a Motel 6 room in North Hills, California on August 21, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
An autopsy was carried out on Wednesday but the cause of death has not yet been determined. It is not yet clear how he died.
After he was reported missing, his friends expressed their fears.
"This is very unusual for him to be missing. He hasn't done anything, not shown up for no reason, no note or anything," friend Mel Espinoza told ABC7 News.
Police said a recent break-up with his boyfriend could have been linked to his disappearance.
In 2013, Strebel spoke to INSIDE EDITION about his surgeries to look like the “Baby Baby” singer.
He said: “I looked at [Bieber’s] pictures and I was like, 'Wow, that's exactly what I'm supposed to look like!'"
When asked why he would go under the knife to look just like Justin Bieber, he answered: “I just want to have the youthful features of him and just look as young as he does."
