Dulcedo said it learned Thursday afternoon of the death and "was in shock". After living on the streets of Montreal, Genest started by performing in the sideshow business as a weird entertainer.

The news outlet reports that Montreal law enforcement sources say the Canadian artist and model jumped from a fourth floor balcony of an apartment building Wednesday around 5 p.m.in Le Plateu-Mont-Royal. By the time he turned twenty, his body was practically covered with morbid, skeletal-inspired ink, giving him the appearance of a living corpse (hence the nickname "Zombie Boy"). Genest now holds a Guinness World Record for the most insect and bone tattoos on his body, according to PEOPLE.
