Leonel Armenta Obituary, Death – The body of Leonel Armenta, who had worked as the first violinist for the Yucatán Symphony Orchestra (OSY), was discovered in his apartment on the morning of November 16, 2022. He was 49 years old at that point in time. Armenta was an individual who lived alone in the Chuburná de Hidalgo neighborhood in Merida, Mexico. He was from Mexico.
The employees and residents of the apartment building immediately began looking for the musician as soon as they became aware of his disappearance. They realized that the last time they had seen him was on Saturday, November 13, and they had not seen him since then. The state investigative police arrived at the residence in a timely manner and cordoned it off while they waited for the results of the forensic testing to be returned from the office of the state attorney general.
Even though it has not been determined what caused Armenta’s death, the police do not believe that it was the result of any kind of foul play. (This is despite the fact that it has not been determined what caused Armenta’s death.) “We express our most profound condolences for Leonel Armenta’s family and join in their pain during this difficult time,” the Office of the Special Advocate for Youth (OSY) said in a statement. “We join in their pain during this difficult time.”
The news that Armenta has passed away comes as another blow to the OSY, which has recently suffered a devastating loss when its home venue, the Teatro José Peón Contreras, was destroyed in a fire that was caused by a short circuit on November 1, 2022. The news of Armenta’s passing comes as another blow to the OSY. On Friday, November 18, the orchestra will play a concert in honor of Armenta at the Palacio de la Msica, which is its new home.
