Reports said that the 35-year-old brunette died during the night after foreign material was trapped in her lungs, causing a pulmonary aspiration.
Sinaloa State Attorney General Juan José Rios Estavillo told reporters at the time that forensic examiners made ‘an analysis of the various [substances] this person consumed and they tested positive.’
‘All of this compromised her organisms which caused the death. But what we can assure is that the death specifically derived from a non-violent cause.’
A spokesperson with the Sinaloa prosecutor’s office could not confirm which banned substances Ochoa Félix had taken.
Mexican outlet Milenio reported that the man she had been partying with tried to wake her up, at 6:50pm local time, but that she was unresponsive. He then contacted paramedics.
The pair had gone out to a local restaurant and then partied at a nightclub.
