Juan Sebastian Figueroa was shot and killed in a bar brawl Saturday in Cuernavaca. The son of Latin Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter Joan Sebastian, Figueroa was the second son in the family to die. Another of Joan Sebastian's sons was killed four years ago.
The 32-year-old murder victim was originally identified as Mexican TV Star Jose Manuel Figueroa, but that information was later recanted.
Univision is reporting that a spokesman for state prosecutors said Figueroa got into a scuffle with private security guards after leaving a bar. One of the security guards fired two shots that fatally wounded Sebastian Figueroa. He was taken to a local medical facility where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. Figueroa died of severe internal bleeding and bruising of the lungs, according to Univision reports.
How sad that Joan Sebastian, beloved Mexican singer and songwriter, has lost two sons under similar circumstances. The pain of losing a child has got to be the most horrific pain imaginable. To lose two would push many people over the edge. I pray that Sebastian Figueroa may rest in peace and that his family finds solace in the coming days.
