Former Miss Uruguay Found Dead In Mexico City Hotel Room
The winner of Miss Uruguay 2006, who once represented her country at both the Miss Universe and Miss World competitions, has been found dead in a hotel room in Mexico City.
According to police, officers responded to an early morning emergency call and found a woman hanged in a hotel bathroom. The hotel is located in Napoles, a central neighborhood of Mexico’s capital city.
Shortly after discovering her body, authorities identified the victim as 31-year-old Fatimih Davila Sosa, a former Miss Uruguay who represented the country at the Miss Universe pageant in 2006 and the Miss World pageant in 2008.
Fatimih Davila Sosa’s unexpected death has caused an outpouring of shock and grief.
A spokesperson for the Miss Universe pageant said: “We are deeply saddened by the news and passing of Fatimih Davila, Miss Universe Uruguay 2006. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time.”
Davila sought to enjoy every moment of her life, even traveling the world.
In the years following her pageant competitions, Davila worked as a model and was known for her role in the Televisa telenovela, “Triunfo del Amor” from 2010-2011.
Davila’s page on the Miss World website said her interests included skydiving, reading, and dancing. Her motto was “Enjoy every moment in your life.”
According to reports, Davila was in Mexico City for a job interview.
“Vamos a empezar el año 2019 sonriendo y con buena onda,” she wrote in her last Instagram post.
Officials say that she was not alone in her hotel room when she arrived in Mexico City.
“An acquaintance helped her move into the mentioned hotel ahead of a job interview,” prosecutors said in a statement.
We are still waiting for an official ruling on the death but the prosecutor’s office said that a homicide investigation was launched to look into the circumstances surrounding the hanging and whether she took her own life or was perhaps killed.
There is speculation that her death is tied to a sex trafficking ring.
According to Mexico’s El Universal, investigators are also looking into the possibility that Davila may have fallen victim to a prostitution web that promises foreign women work as models in Mexico, but then they become sex trafficking victims.
The New York Post reports that a book released in 2012 mentioned Davila’s name as a suspect in a sex trafficking ring. According to the New York Post, the sex ring worked to convince women that sleeping with powerful men would help their careers.
