As reported by the local newspaper ‘Milenio’, the staff of the clinic where she worked was the one who found her and called the emergency services. However, no longer had vital signs.

According to statements by the director of the clinic, Dr. Rolando Samper, died after receiving local anesthesia for liposuction. Therefore, it is presumed that the cause of death was cardiorespiratory arrest.

He added that one of the nurses said that her colleague would have taken advantage of the fact that there were no other personnel in the place to carry out the procedure secretly.

Meanwhile, the authorities are carrying out the pertinent investigations and the prosecutor Uriel Carmona Gándara presented another hypothesis: “We are not going to rule out that it could have been a reckless homicide. We are going to make appear all the people who had to see. (…) If this death had to do with irresponsibility, there will be sanctions and charges.”

He added that it is not credible that a person would give himself such strong anesthetics and that the directors of the Clinic will have to answer to the authorities.
