Dayami Lozada Died: What Happened To Her?

Cuban singer Dayami Lozada, known as the ” Barbie de la Salsa “, was killed in several shots at her home in Cancun, in the state of Quintana Roo, last Saturday.

The artist reportedly arrived in Mexico in 2006 and made a living singing in bars and nightclubs in Cancun.

According to the Cuban press, the interpreter died after being shot five times in her home, although, according to witnesses, it was not possible to clarify whether it was a  direct attack against the artist or if the murderers were pursuing another objective.

The police investigation seeks to identify two individuals who had arrived on a motorcycle at Hacienda Ciénega de la  Supermanzana 210, to shoot the  Cuban artist, who was in the courtyard of her home and then fled.

Sources indicate that at the time of the incident, Lozada was in the courtyard of her house, located on Hacienda Ciénaga de la Supermanzana 201, where two armed individuals murdered her and immediately fled.

Neighbors called 911 after hearing the shots, but when paramedics arrived at the scene, the ” Barbie de la Salsa ” had already died.

The Quintana Roo Police proceeded to cordon off the crime scene to open an investigation with the collaboration of the  Expert Services and investigative agents of the State Attorney General’s Office.

Some versions reflected by the press indicate that the Cuban singer’s partner could be involved in the crime, so it is not ruled out that it is another femicide motivated by sexist violence.

Lozada,  44, had been living in Cancun for more than  15 years, where she became popular singing in bars and nightclubs. She had three children, two boys, ages five and eight,  and a 20-year-old girl.

The artist’s daughter follows in her footsteps in music. The 5 and 8-year-olds remain in the custody of the Government of Mexico, who would have provided them with protection while the results of the investigation are known.

The Cuban singer leaves behind three children, two boys, ages 5 and 8, and a 20-year-old girl who followed in her footsteps as an artist.
