Botched reality TV personality Tobias Strebel, known for his similar appearance to Justin Bieber, was found dead in a Motel 6 room on Aug. 21 in North Hills, Calif., The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. He was 35.

Strebel died Aug. 21 at 5 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Coroner's Office. An autopsy was conducted Wednesday, and the cause of death had not yet been determined.
