What a sad day for the Echevarria family.
While there isn’t much information available on the death, sources close to the family believe Herman died of a heart attack. Echevarria’s loved ones became concerned when he missed work and wasn’t answering his phone.
Given the odd circumstances, H.E.’s Miami hotel room was searched which unfortunately led to the discovery of his body. Police say the investigation is still ongoing.
