Zombie Boy found dead! Rick Genest (†32) – One of the last interviews

As we found on FIV Magazine – “Rick Genest (†) a gifted artist, originally known as a tattoo model, was found dead in his apartment last night at the age of 32. We are great admirers and were allowed to meet Rick Genest for an interview for the first time two years ago. He died in his native country, Canada, in his apartment, which his management confirmed today during the day. According to official information, he took his own life. His last posting was just as gloomy.”

Remember a great artist!

But remember the Rick Genest, who took the world by storm as a zombie boy, who had a good life, a wife and children.
