Justin Bieber’s famous look-alike, Toby Sheldon, was sadly found dead in a Motel 6 on Aug. 21, and fans of the ‘Botched’ star are mourning his death on Twitter. See their reactions here.
Toby Sheldon‘s body was discovered in a motel room in the San Fernando Valley on Aug. 21, after the 35-year-old had been missing for three days. Following the sad news of his death, fans have taken to Twitter to mourn the late Botched star, who paid $100,000 to look like his idol Justin Bieber.
Toby’s body was reportedly found inside his Motel 6 room along with drugs, though the cause of his death is not yet known. His death, however, is thought to be in connection to his recent breakup with his boyfriend. Toby was known for his love of the “Baby” singer, who he called “extraordinarily beautiful.” He appeared on a 2014 Botched episode, as well as on My Strange Addiction. Here’s how fans are reacting to the sad news.

Actor and songwriter Adam Barta also mourned Toby’s death. Toby released a song with Adam in 2014 called “Justified” dedicated to their love for Justin.
Devastated about Toby (aka Tobias Strebel). He was an amazing person & songwriter. Honored to have worked w/him. Passion like #JustinBieber
