“I have this terrible feeling that it was foul play,” she said.
“It hurts me so much. She was such a fun, happy person. Who had so much anger in them that they could do this to her?”
Tobi is the latest person close to Alexis who has suggested the circumstances of her death were suspicious.
Sharkey’s friends told ABC affiliate KTRK that, despite not knowing exactly how Alexis died, that they have “ideas.”

“We don’t know what happened. We obviously have had ideas. We believe she was murdered, absolutely,” Lauren Breaux told the outlet.
“I’m going to be honest, she confided in me about how worried she was for her safety when we went to Marfa, Texas, almost a month ago,” she added.
“We were sitting down at dinner and she lost it. We walked back to our hotel room and she confided in me that night in things. I looked at her [and thought], ‘She’s petrified. This girl is scared for her life.'”

“The way in which she was found – my child would never do that to herself,” she said.
“That doesn’t even make sense. That is absolutely foul play.”
The newlywed, 26, went missing in Texas on Friday after reportedly having an argument with an as-yet-unidentified person before turning up dead.
Her husband, Tom Sharkey, 49, denied that he had an argument with his wife to KTRK-TV on Tuesday: “We didn’t fight when she left. I just told her she couldn’t drive under the influence… She left anyhow. This is where we’re at.”

While denying the fight, Tom told the outlet “there’s always other sides to everything.
“I don’t need to set the record straight,” he said. “I’ll let it play out the way it is. I know what my life was with my wife.”
Her body was found early on Saturday morning a few miles from her apartment by a garbage truck driver who spotted a pair of feet sticking out from under some bushes.
Friends had last heard from her at around 6pm on Friday, and after that phone calls began going straight to her voicemail.
The influencer – who had 21,000 followers on Instagram -– had no visible injuries.
Her cause of death has not been determined yet.
The Houston Police Department said investigations into the death are ongoing.
Sharkey, the oldest of three sisters and a biology graduate, had moved to West Texas and become a full-time social media influencer.
She then moved to Houston with her husband in January.
