Actress Rosario Dawson, 38 found her 26 year old cousin Vanez Ines Vasquez unresponsive at her Venice Beach Apartment. She immediately notified paramedics who rushed her to the hospital but were unfortunately unable to resuscitate her. Tragedy struck the star late last week when she found the youngster to be unresponsive as she came down her apartment.
Vanez, who reportedly worked for Rosario was said to be suffering from severe migraines lately and also had hypertension. So far, the autopsy reportedly points to death due to natural causes. While the toxicology results are still pending, there is no known history of substance abuse by Vanez. Attempts to reach Rosario Dawson and her family went in vain as they did not wish to issue any statement at this point in time.
Discovered at the young age of 15, Rosario who was raised by her mother Isabel always stressed on the importance of family in her life. She has never met her biological father as he abandoned her mother who fell pregnant at the tender age of 17. Rosario was later adopted by her mother’s partner who began dating her while she was 8 months pregnant with her. She says she was blessed to have him in her life, saying that these things don’t just happen by chance. That a young man marrying a woman carrying a child that was not his, is indeed rare. Even today, she shares a very close relationship with her mother.
Juggling a complicated work schedule has made it unable for Rosario to appear in Marvel’s The Punisher series. She has played Claire Temple in several Marvel shows before. One of her latest works is “Unforgettable” with Katherine Heigl. She is also reported to be playing the role of activist Donna Hylton in a movie based on the the biography “A little Piece of Light.” People are anxiously waiting for the movie to hit the theatres.
