The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

Mex­ico City: Leg­endary Mex­i­can singer Jose Jose’s le­gions of fans had not even fin­ished pro­cess­ing the news of his death when a mys­tery ex­ploded amid the mourn­ing: where is The Prince of Song’s body? Jose Jose died on Satur­day at age 71out­side Mi­ami, ac­cord­ing to the Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment. Fans were still belt­ing out his hits in Mex­ico City, when the loss took a turn: Jose Jose’s two old­est chil­dren, Jose Joel and Marysol, ac­cused their younger half-sis­ter and her mother of hid­ing his body for fi­nan­cial gain.

When Jose Joel and Marysol ar­rived on Sun­day at the fu­neral home, they were told their fa­ther’s body wasn’t there. They say their dad’s third wife, Sara Salazar, and her daugh­ter, Sarita, have re­fused to tell them where it is. Jose Joel and Marysol then filed a po­lice com­plaint. “We have the right to see the body. We want to know if our fa­ther has re­ally died,” said Jose Joel. “We aren’t fight­ing for his money.” Jose Jose’s man­ager, Laura Nunez said there was no record of a death cer­tifi­cate for the late singer.

Sarita did not re­fer di­rectly to the ac­cu­sa­tions in an in­ter­view with net­work Univi­sion , but made an ap­peal for fam­ily unity, in her fa­ther’s name.
