Popular Instagram Model and Influencer Found Dead at Only 31-Years-Old

Popular Instagram Model and Influencer Found Dead at Only 31-Years-Old

I am seeing so many heartbreaking stories about all these young people dying.


It’s disturbing.

In many of these deaths, the causes are “unknown,” some are drug overdoses, and others, like the one I am about to share with you, are suicides.

All three of these ‘reasons’ are sad… and it’s happening so often, that I really hope some people out there with a lot of resources look into all of this because there are some young folks in America who really need a lot of help.

And speaking of that, this story is about one of those young folks who was troubled.

It’s about a very pretty young lady from Houston, Texas, by the name of Niece Waidhofer.

She was a very popular influencer and model on Instagram, and today, she’s gone.

Waidhofer struggled with mental illness, and some people suspect was still dealing with the end of an engagement that didn’t work out.

And sadly, she ended her young life.

Radar Online reported that social media influenced Niece Waidhofer “took her own life after a long battle with mental health issues,” her devastated family shared while confirming reports of her death at 31.

Waidhofer, who grew a following of more than 4 million on Instagram, had either deleted or archived several of her posts before her passing — leaving up only three.

Her latest IG post was a car selfie shared on March 25. She also opted to leave a video of herself dancing with her dog back in 2017.

The oldest photo was of Waidhofer and her then-fiancé announcing their engagement alongside a photo of the couple kissing and showcasing her diamond ring in June 2015. She was reportedly single at the time of her death.

“From our very first date, I knew this was the man I want to spend the rest of my life with,” the model wrote in her caption. “Even still, there is nothing that could have prepared me for the elation I felt when he asked me to be his wife. My love, you are all I will ever want. I will love you with my entire heart until I take my last breath.”

Waidhofer was found dead after cops showed up at her Houston, Texas, residence for a welfare check following a call from a concerned family member.


“She was very open with her followers about her struggles, even wanting to help followers who also suffered,” her loved ones revealed.

Waidhofer previously went viral after doing the “Roast Me” trend on Reddit.

To honor her memory, Waidhofer’s family plans to launch a non-profit called “Peace from Niece” to benefit mental health awareness and provide grants for mental illness research.

“Niece was more than her struggles. She was beautiful and kind, sensitive and funny, creative and talented, generous and compassionate, thoughtful and challenging,” her family told TMZ.

“While it is so very painful to say goodbye, we take comfort knowing she is reunited with her father, her three grandparents, her Uncle Rusty, and her beloved [dog] Puff; and that she is now free to be herself and, finally, at peace.”

This is just heartbreaking.


Our hearts and our prayers go out to this beautiful young woman’s family. I hope they find peace as they deal with this horrific loss.
