Miami mayor Thomas Regalado wanted Ultra out of his city because someone was trampled. So what is he going to say now that someone has died?
Adonis Pena Escoto was found dead after Ultra Music Festival. He was 21 years old.
He had been feeling lightheaded, so his friends escorted him to the car and went back to the festival. He appears to have died in the car after his friends left.
The autopsy has not yet been completed, and the toxicology report will “probably take a few months,” according to Miami Police Chief Manuel Orosa.
Sounds like a familiar story, though Adonis’ family told NBC Miami that he was not into drugs. That statement is inconclusive, of course, since drugs are not the type of information people typically bring up at the dinner table.
The tragic development makes Mayor Regalado’s statement ring truer than ever:
“We understand that this brings a lot of name recognition and money to the City of Miami, but the most important thing is quality of life“.
