LOS ANGELES, CA - Trying to look and sound like Justin Bieber may be seen as a joke to many, but for Toby Sheldon, it was serious business. The 35-year-old wannabe, who became famous for spending more than $100,000 to look like Biebs, has been found dead.

According to TMZ, police found him Friday in a Motel 6 room in Los Angeles, three days after he was reported missing. A cause of death hasn't been announced, but TMZ says police found drugs in the room.

The Bieber 'lookalike' appeared on shows like TLC's 'My Strange Addiction' and E!'s 'Botched,' where the plastic surgery patient tried his hand in the studio. A sad ending to a strange life.
