Tobias Strebel spent nearly $100,000 (£63,000) to look like the singer
A Justin Bieber fan who spent nearly $100,000 (£63,000) on plastic surgery to look like his idol died of a multiple drug overdose, a coroner has confirmed.
Tobias Strebel (formerly Toby Sheldon) was reported missing last year before being found dead in a motel room on August 21, 2015 in North Hills, California.
The Wrap now reports that Strebel died of multiple drug intoxication and that the overdose was accidental.
Strebel had Valium, Xanax, temazepam and alcohol in his system, according to the Los Angeles County coroner. Police do not suspect foul play in the death.
Strebel made headlines during 2013 when he claimed to have spent thousands on cosmetic procedures to resemble the pop star.
An aspiring songwriter, Strebel also appeared on a 2014 episode of E!’s Botched reality TV show.
“What brought me to Bieber was the whole package: the full cheeks, the full temples, the bright open eyes, the full luscious lips, and spatial framing… [he’s] just extraordinarily beautiful,” he said on the show.
