Hector Lavoe who survived even after attempting a suicide attempt died in June 1993 because of AIDS. But do you know how his wife died? Well, on today’s topic we will let you know the cause of Nilda Puchi Lavoe’s death. Also, know if the couple shares children together or not.
Nilda Lavoe was, (when she died), in the process of filming the biographical documentary of her late husband. She was working on voice recording when she slipped and fell from a 14th story window and dropped to death with severe head trauma.
She died before the final cut of the documentary “EI Cantante”. The documentary shows the life of singer Hector from the view of his wife Nilda Lavoe. Through the documentary, Hector’s professional life, as well as his relationship with Nilda, was featured.
Just nine years before her death, she experienced the tragic death of her husband through aids.
Well, talking about the children then the couple share a son together and named him Hector Jr. on September 25, 1969. But their son died before both of them. In fact, it is said that he was killed by his own friend.
But some of the sources said that it was an accident as his friend had a loaded gun and mistakenly the gun misfired killing Lavoe Jr. but the fact of his death has not been proved properly yet. The gunshot is taken by some as a thought out attempt to murder Lavoe.
Even though the couple has only given birth to son Hector Jr, Hector also adopted Puchi’s Daughter whom Hector give his last name Leslie Lavoe.
