Adult film star Bill Bailey has died at the age of 38, having fallen to his death from the fourth floor of a hotel in Mexico.
According to local media, he had been drinking all day and may have been involved in an argument with another unidentified person at some point.
The popular American actor died in the early hours of Monday morning at the Hotel Grand Prix on Río Churubusco Avenue in Mexico City.
Emergency services were called to the scene after Bailey reportedly fell from the fourth floor, but he had died instantly.
He had been in Mexico for the Expo Sexo y Erotismo 2019 (Sex and Eroticism Expo 2019), which he is believed to have attended with his girlfriend, fellow adult film star AJ Applegate, and several friends.
The Secretariat of Public Security said: "A 29-year-old woman from Florida in the US who was staying in the same hotel as her boyfriend, the victim, said that they were both in Mexico for professional reasons and to visit the sex expo.
"She also said that she is a porn actress and claimed that her boyfriend had been drinking all day."
Police confirmed an investigation into the porn star's death is underway.
Bailey had served in Iraq before working in the adult film industry, and he had reportedly appeared in over 2,000 adult movie scenes.
According to AVN, his scenes amassed more than 382 million views on Pornhub.
R.I.P my brother Bill Bailey. You made life better when you were around. You always asked me first how am I doing and how's my kids. I respected you, trusted you and considered you a friend. pic.twitter.com/i4kizZSUHO

Talent agent Randy Quintata told AVN: "We talked to the US Embassy... we spoke to the family; we kept them in the loop.
"The US Embassy questioned everybody; they got the cameras; there was no foul play - it was an accident.
"It looks like after they get [Bailey's] passport, two or three days later they're going to go ahead and send the body with the family. They're coordinating with the family. I got the family in touch with the US Embassy."
Bailey's fiancée, performer AJ Applegate, was in attendance at Expo Sexo as well, and with Quintana when he spoke to AVN.
On her behalf, Quintana added: "AJ would really love privacy right now, so if maybe our peers could not [offer condolences] on social media, it would help her during her time of mourning, while she makes arrangements with the family."
Rest in peace.
