Just this young woman was the one who posted some photos and excerpts from Yomil's concert on the aforementioned social network just before dying, which makes the case even sadder.

"If you come home voiceless, it's a sign that you enjoyed the concert. (Yomil)," he wrote alongside the images, which unfortunately are now filled with messages of condolences.
