Gay porn model David Slick, best known for working with the studio Falcon Studios, was found dead in Chicago Friday, according to reports. He was 26.
Slick, who was from Arizona, was a webcam model and a Falcon Studios exclusive. He was visiting Chicago for the annual adult convention Exxxotica Expo held over the weekend, according to Str8UpGayPorn (extremely NSFW).
The website writes he was a webcam model "over the last three years, and he became well known within the gay porn industry after signing as a Falcon Studios exclusive model earlier this year."
Though a cause of death has not been revealed a report from The Chicago Sun Times says a man from Arizona was reported missing in Chicago Saturday afternoon. The man was reportedly last seen around 1 a.m. Friday while he was out with a friend. The last time the man contacted someone on his phone was around 8 a.m. Friday, police said.
The man was reportedly found unconscious and not breathing around 11:35 a.m. on Friday in the bathroom of a Qdoba restaurant in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont. He was later brought to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
NakedSword/FSG President Tim Valenti said Slick was "earnest and ambitious," adding that his passing "is a tragic loss."
A number of Slick's fellow performers, fans, and others in the gay porn industry paid tribute to him on social media, Str8UpGayPorn points out (again NSFW). Find some of the responses below.
