It’s the kind of story that just makes you feel so sad for everyone involved. Rosario Dawson had the sad misfortune of finding her cousin dead in her own home last week and the details are pretty devastating.
According to reports, the 38-year-old actress was in her Venice home last week when she walked downstairs and made a shocking discovery. Her 26-year-old cousin, Vaneza Ines Vasquez, was unconscious and unresponsive.
Dawson reportedly called paramedics who, unfortunately, were unable to revive Vasquez. She was later pronounced dead at the hospital where she was transported. A toxicology report has been ordered but, so far, investigators have suggested that the young woman died of natural causes. She was known to suffer from migraines and hypertension.
Most recently, Rosario Dawson has been starring in the Netflix series, The Defenders, which returns on August 18, 2017.
