Mexican singer’s body has ‘disappeared’, claim kids
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.
