A man who gained fame for spending thousands of dollars on plastic surgery in a bid to look like pop star Justin Bieber died last year from a lethal mix of pain killers, alcohol and anti-anxiety medicine, authorities said.
Tobias M. Strebel, better known as Toby Sheldon, was found dead Aug. 21, 2015, in a Motel 6 along Roscoe Boulevard in North Hills, according to an autopsy report issued Monday by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Strebel, 35, had been reported missing more than three days before his body was found.
When paramedics responded to the room, they found Strebel’s partly decomposed body, with some maggots around his head and neck. He was found with his arms outstretched and lying across the foot of the bed, according to the report.
An autopsy report shows a man who claimed to have spent more than $100,000 on plastic surgeries in an effort to look like pop star Justin Bieber died of an accidental drug overdose.
Thirty-five-year-old Tobias Strebel was found dead in a Los Angeles motel last August. A toxicology report released by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office shows Strebel had Valium, Xanax, alcohol and various opiates in his system when he died.
Stebel discussed his transformation on reality shows such as “Botched” and “My Strange Addiction.” He said he had hair transplants and surgery on his eyebrows, lips and chin to look more like Bieber.
