Richmond Police said her killing was being treated as a murder-suicide.

According to The Independent, spokesperson Lieutenant Lowell Neinast said: "At this point in the investigation, it is not believed that there was a relationship between the suspect and the victim.

"At this point, this is being considered a murder-suicide and it is an ongoing investigation to determine motive in the case."

KHOU journalist Grace White reported that the Fort Bend County Medical Examiner has since ruled Gagnier's death a homicide and said her cause of death was strangulation, while Accorto's death was ruled a suicide caused by 'multiple sharp force trauma'.

Gagnier's sister, London, said she was killed in the 'sickest way' in a post on Instagram.

She said: "Yesterday was the worst day of my life.. my heart is gone. My soul is gone... Me & mom talked to you on Thursday to check on you & per usual, you were having an amazing time.

"We talk every day. I'm so happy we said we loved you. I'm so happy I got to see your face one last time."

Neighbours in the gated complex where Gagnier lived were shocked to hear of her killing.

Roderick Shaw told KPRC-TV: "What I thought was safe it seems is not. We have so many rules and so many guidelines, I would never expect someone to breach our security and someone be murdered on this property."

While Field Ledford told ABC13: "It would be kind of surprising to know that this was an intruder, someone that broke into the house, because I wouldn't think that would happen here."
