The death of Montreal model and artist Rick Genest, also known as Zombie Boy, was an accident, not a suicide, according to a coroner’s report released Monday.
Genest fell off a third-floor balcony in Montreal’s Plateau–Mont-Royal borough on the afternoon of Aug. 1, 2018, the report said.
Coroner Mélissa Gagnon concluded he died of head trauma resulting from the fall. He was 32.
There had initially been speculation Genest’s death was a suicide.
