13 February 2007 – Eliana Ramos dead


Uruguayan model Eliana Ramos, 18, was found dead in her grandparents’ home in Montevideo. The cause of death was cardiac infarction, presumably as a result of malnutrition. Just over six months ago, on 2 August 2006, her sister Luisel, who was four years older, died of cardiac failure during a fashion show. Her death was also attributed to malnourishment, and prompted the organizers of Fashion Week in Madrid to prohibit the participation of severely underweight models.
