Paraguayan soccer star Ivan Torres is mourning the loss of his estranged wife, Cristina “Vita” Aranda. The model and mother of three died at age 29.
Ivan, who plays for Club Olimpia, shared the news on his Instagram page on Monday, Jan. 31, with a matching statement on her fitness account.
The translated note reads, “One of Cristina’s priorities was to be close to her followers.” He invited fans to say “their last goodbye” to her by paying their respects at a funeral home in Asunción, Paraguay.
The statement states that “out of respect in this sensitive moment, the entry to the wakeroom will be restricted for family and friends.” Your willingness to be with us at this moment is greatly appreciated. You are asked to dedicate the floor on ground level to Vita.
According to reports published by the BBC and ABC, she was shot at a music festival in Paraguay on Sunday, Jan. 30, and later died of her injuries. In total, two people reportedly died and at least four more were wounded in the shooting at the Ja’umina Fest concert, which hosted thousands of people at the José Asunción Flores amphitheater.
