Four Points mixed martial arts cage fighter suspected of slaying model girlfriend, self


FOUR POINTS - A man and woman found dead in a Four Points-area apartment late Sunday night appear to have died as a result of a murder-suicide that may have resulted from a recent break up, Austin Police said.

Kenny Trevino, a mixed martial arts fighter, and Tiffanie Perry, a Texas State student and occasional swimsuit model and body builder, were found dead, after police were called to check on Trevino at his home at the Alexan Ribelin Ranch apartment complex in the 9900 block of McNeil Drive, near Vandegrift High School.

"A relative of Kenneth Trevino's called 911 and stated that Trevino was despondent over the recent breakup with his ex-girlfriend, Tiffanie Perry," an Austin Police Department press release said. "The relative stated that Trevino had threatened to commit suicide."

When officers arrived, they found both the 26-year-old MMA fighter and the 23-year-old model dead.

Austin police told news crews on the scene that both bodies suffered trauma, but investigators have not released an official cause of death.

An autopsy will be performed by the Travis County Medical Examiners Office, which will determine cause of death.

A profile linked from Perry's Facebook that appears to be hers shows photos and videos of her and says that she models "because I love to model. This is not how I plan to make a living nor is it how I pay the bills."

Perry goes on to say that "Austin has not always been my place of residence but it has been my only home."

Trevino, a Round Rock High School graduate, shows a penchant for the Old Testament and violent movies about organized crime on his Facebook page.

He describes freedom as "losing all hope."

"I am a nice person until you push me," Trevino wrote on Facebook.

If ruled a homicide, police said Perry's death will be the 22nd murder of the year.
