The agent of Jeff Thomas, the 35-year-old model who tragically fell to his death from a balcony in Miami on March 8, has suggested that he may have been attempting to take a selfie when the accident occurred.
His apartment was located in a 57-floor tower near downtown Miami and authorities are still looking into the case as a possible suicide.
Luli Batista, a representative from the Sovereign Talent Group in Los Angeles, was completely shocked by the news of Thomas’ death. She told the Daily Mail, “I just can’t believe it’s true that he intentionally did this. He may have fallen while he was taking a selfie.”
Just a day before the accident, Thomas and Batista had exchanged messages and jokes regarding an upcoming audition. They were scheduled to have a phone call on Friday, and according to Batista as reported by the outlet, Thomas was “thrilled and was proud of himself. He was happy, motivated, and excited for his next step – just loving life.”
