If you go to the Instagram page of model @MissMercedesMorr, thousands of her followers are leaving their condolences.

Janae Gagnier, known to her followers as Miss Mercedes Morr with over 2.5 million people following her Instagram account, was found dead in her Richmond, Texas apartment Sunday afternoon.

The popular Texas Instagram model is believed to be the victim of an apparent murder-suicide. Reportedly, 34-year-old Kevin Alexander Acorto was also found dead.
KTRK reports that no other information is available other than investigators believed the two didn't previously know each other.

I assume this was probably an attempted robbery, but we'll have to wait until more details come to light to get any answers.

RANKED: America's Top 12 Best-Looking State Trooper Cruisers

Did you know that there is a brotherhood of state troopers called the American Association of State Troopers (AAST)? Their goal: PROTECT. PROVIDE. CONNECTAccording to their website the AAST was formed in 1989 when a "small group of Florida state troopers had the vision to create an association that would unite state troopers across the country and assist them by providing valuable benefits and services."

Each year the AAST releases a calendar of the best looking state trooper cruisers. Ranking is determined by their Facebook followers. It's all for a great cause too. Proceeds benefit the AAST Foundation, which provides higher education scholarships for AAST troopers' children dependents. A noble cause by any measure. 

 

12 Rappers Who Are Also Actors

Growing up, I was always a fan of L.L.Cool J.

I even had the cassette tape of his first album and used to rewind it over and over, writing down the lyrics.

This was the mid-80s, and that was a little over 30 years ago. (Geez).

I brought up my admiration for L.L. Cool J to prove how long he has been around and to use an example of how much he has been a major contributor to the culture of hip hop, whether it's been movies, music, or TV.

Then there's Ice Cube, who is now known for his movies as opposed to his music.

Queen Latifah and Will Smith, who were hip hop stars, were also able to cross over to network TV and then to film, paving the way for hip hop artists today to do the same.

Here are 12 noteworthy rappers who are also successful actors, presented in no particular order.

(By the way, we're not ranking them, because they all have their different strengths.)
