My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Erika Ortiz. May she rest in peace and may God give her family, especially little Carla, strength during these very difficult moments.

i'm shocked. not only because she was so young and everything was so unexpected, but because of what may have happened. she didn't suffer from any physical disease and although they said she was depressed, she seemed fine in the last photos that were taken.

i wonder if the royal house will have anything to say on the cause of her death.

I am shocked. This is so sad, a young woman with a little daughter.
Even more so if Erica really was in such a deep depression that she committed suicide.
She looks very fragile and sensitive in the video.
I deeply feel for her and her family.

How awful. Letizia has been through so much all of which she has gone through it in the public eye. To show your face and have to show a brave one at that is just a huge feat on the human body and mind. Also, given her pregnancy, I do hope she is under medical watch. This could put tremendous strain on her and the baby. I am a therapist and although I hate to speculate, the signs appear to point to a suicide, depression, isolation, etc. However, ALL possibilities must be ruled out. My condolences are with the familia Real.

Poor pregnant Letizia... poor little Carla... Poor paloma rocasolano, the loss of a daughter surely isn't the funniest thing in life. It's very reassuring to hear about the reaction of the queen.

Exclamation Princess Letizia youngest sister is dead

Erika Ortiz, Princess Letizia youngest sister was found dead at her home in Spain this evening (February 7, 2007. Wednesday). The corpse is at the forensics already and we still don´t know what happened. She had been suffering from depression for around 3 months now or so. She leaves a 6 year-old daughter, Carla, orphan. She had her only child with a man whom she was never married to. She was now living at the house Letizia used to live in before marrying Prince Felipe. If I know more about it I will let you know.

Queen Sofia cried when she knew about it and she´s flying back to Spain to be with his son and daughter-in-law, both staying at La Zarzuela. Erika´s parents were in the house with her dead daughter after getting a call from someone (still don´t know who) when they were working. King Juan Carlos will keep on doing his Royal duties. Sister Thelma is outside the country and trying to get a flight to go to Spain.

Results of the autopsy will be released tomorrow in the morning, if not earlier. Erika will be probably buried in Asturias (this all has happened in Madrid). As Erika was not a part of the Royal Family there will be no Announcement from La Zarzuela (that´s what the press says).

My most sincere condolences to all of them, specially her daughter Carla and Princess Letizia and her parents). And sorry about my English, as it´s not good enough.

Here there is a link related to it: (In Spanish. For English news type "Erika Ortiz" at Google)

(Please tell me if I can add pics of Erika as a tribute and where should I get them from if agency ones can´t be used. Thanks very much).

As it has been mentioned on some sites that she had committed suicide, I thing we all should not believe that till something/or if something official is said of what caused the death. Taking a few days of work does not mean she was depressed; she might have just wanted to have a few days off, spend time with her daughter and/or family.

Until the official cause of death is released, PLEASE PLEASE let's not speculate on what caused Ericka's death.

I think her memory should be respected. And that kind of rumors (suicide), even if at the end they result to be true, are at the presente time unplesant. Let's just wait for the autopsie result, and then everydbody would be able to speak with certain.

This just makes me wanna start bawling on my keyboard, because its like deja vu all over for me. Like little Carla, I lost a "parent" when I was six, or probably seven. It was my aunts fiance, I called him uncle even though they werent married, he was like my second dad. The last time I ever saw him was at Christmas, then one day when I came back from school, my mom told me he had died. He was about Erika's age, and I remembered crying so hard. I so wanted go to his funeral, but my mom said no, and she wouldnt tell me why he died. It turned out to be cancer. I'm not really an orphan, but the day my uncle died I felt like one, because he was the only person who treated me like a child and not like a little adult.
I gotta get a tissue or I'm gonna start crying.
