A former beauty queen who represented her country at the Miss Universe pageant in 2006 and the Miss World pageant in 2008 has been found dead under suspicious circumstances.
31-year-old Fatimih Dávila Sosa was found hanging by the neck inside her room at a hotel in Mexico City.
“City officials said police responded to an early-morning emergency call and found a woman hanged in the bathroom at the hotel, which is located in the central neighborhood of Napoles in the Mexican capital.
“The body of the 31-year-old woman was suspended from the shower tube inside her room.”
“According to local media, Dávila worked as a model in the years following her pageant competitions including a short stint on the Televisa soap opera ‘The Triumph of Love.’”
Dávila had arrived in Mexico City as recently as April 23 for a reported job opportunity.
“An acquaintance helped her move into the above-mentioned hotel ahead of a job interview,” prosecutors said in a statement.
Investigators are looking into the possibility that she may have been the victim of foul play.
According to Mexico’s El Universal, "investigators are also looking into the possibility that Dávila may have been the victim of a prostitution web that promises foreign women work as a model in Mexico, but then become trafficking victims.
"The news agency said there have been numerous cases of women kidnapped and forced into prostitution or murdered."
According to El Universal, “In recent years there have been many cases of foreign women arriving in Mexico with promises of work as a model but many end up being victims of trafficking and there have been some cases in which they are murdered.”
No matter the circumstances, please pray for the loved ones of this beautiful young woman - and for the police that they find the person responsible for her death if foul play was, indeed, involved.
