Rosario Dawson found her cousin dead when she walked downstairs in her Venice home last Thursday. Details inside.
Her cousin, named Vanez Ines Vasquez was unconscious and unresponsive. Rosario Dawson called the paramedics but they unfortunately could not revive her, as she was later pronounced dead at a Los Angeles hospital. Vasquez was 26 years-old.
PEOPLE reports that although the toxicology report is still pending, an autopsy indicates her death was due to natural causes. How sad. Vanez was working for Dawson before she passed away.
Vasquez's mother paid tribute to her late daughter by sharing this sentimental image and message captioned, "Vaneza, my sweet, sweet beautiful baby – your passing has left me destroyed forever but I know you are at peace in Paradise. I love you, my alpha child."
Rosario Dawson has not released a statement. May she rest in peace.
