The world's most modified man, 54 year-old Dennis Avner was discovered dead at his Tonopah home in Nevada.
Avner was deemed the world's most modified human by the Guinness Book of World Records back in 2008.
He said after speaking with a native American chief he became inspired to ‘follow the ways of the tiger.’ He held the record for the most permanent transformations to look like an animal.
He underwent 14 surgical procedures to transform his face, ears and teeth into feline features.The computer technician by trade, and former Navy Veteran made himself look like a female cat, with whiskers and ears to a mechanical tail.
The cause of death has not yet been revealed, but some are speculating that Avner may have killed himself.
