Toby Sheldon: Justin Bieber Look-Alike Found Dead After Being Reported Missing
Some sad news to report today. If you follow our weird news site, AUA, then you probably recognize the face you see in the photo above. 35-year-old Tobias Strebel, who went by Toby Sheldon, found some fame after appearing on My Strange Addiction in 2014.
During his episode, he talked about how he spent over $100,000 to look like Justin Bieber. He got hair transplants, a chin reduction and even lip surgery. Of course, the surgeries didn’t really help him. As you can see, he still looked nothing like Justin Bieber. We said at the time, and we’ll say it again, he looked more like Stuart from Mad TV mixed with a hint of Meg Ryan.
And some of you might be thinking, “Wow. Really? You’re going to post that photo now?” Yes, we are. Just because someone dies doesn’t mean you’re no longer allowed to point out the terrible decisions they made in life.
So what happened to Sheldon? No one knows for sure. He went missing on August 18, and police believe his disappearance might have been triggered by a nasty breakup with his boyfriend. A few days after being reported missing, police found his body in a Motel 6 in the San Fernando Valley. An autopsy has been conducted, but no cause of death has been given yet.
Sources with TMZ claim drugs were found in the room. We’ll keep you posted. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends. You will always be remembered, Sheldon. Not many people can say that.
