On Monday, a body was found in an alcove near the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club, and on Tuesday, it was officially identified as the photographer.

Though there was reportedly no trauma or injury to the body, authorities say alcohol may have played a part.

While Jones’ mother Sherron Jones is mourning, she has found a silver lining.

“It’s been hard. It’s kind of surreal. I feel a real peace about me. I am not falling apart.”

However, Tali has not been taking the news well at all.

The model’s mother says that the musician’s daughter is:

“a wreck, she’s a mess. She keeps saying she wishes Ian knew she was okay. He died for her. He tried to save her. She wants him to know she is okay.”

On Monday, the former Topshop spokeswoman took to Instagram to pay tribute to her boyfriend of two years:

So heartbreaking!

Sherron is planning a memorial service for her son this Saturday at their church in Bensalem, Pennsylvania and will have him cremated.

At least, she remembers her son only with positive memories.

“He made such a difference in so many people’s lives├óΓé¼┬ª Everybody loved them and liked to have them around. They were such a positive couple.”

Our condolences go out to Ian’s friends and family.
