The bass player for the Mexican rock band Botellita de Jerez published a letter saying he would kill himself “to leave the way clear” for his son after he was accused of assaulting a young woman.
The Mexico City prosecutors’ office said that while they could not confirm musician Armando Vega Gil had killed himself, a man’s body was found at a Mexico City home.
The body was to be identified by Vega Gil’s relatives.
The rock band’s Twitter account said “with grief we announce our colleague Armando Vega Gil died this morning.”
Vega Gil had denied an assault accusation made via Twitter under the hashtag #MeTooMusicosMexicanos.
But he said that “a terrible end is better than an endless terror.”
