What a tragic news !
All my condolences go to her family and especially her little girl ...

In these very difficult times, I hope, hope that the spanish media, especially the "yellow" press will have a minimum of respect for the family and especially Letizia and Carla ...
I am not spanish, and I don't know very well how the SRF could act in such cases. But hopefully, they and especially the Prince will go out of their usual way to protect the Princess from the media ...

With all my respect to your posts: Erika is dead. I think that the fact if she was legally married or not is the least important thing here. She was 31, had a daughter and has died- we still don´t know why or how. THAT IS SAD.

I wonder who found her body. The yellow press is saying that she might have commited suicide because it was too big of a burden to be the sister of the princes of Asturias. That is a horrible thing to say and I hope that it is not true.

This thread is now re-opened.

Before we move any further, we'd like to ask the members to please treat this news with the respect and prudence it deserves.

The cause of Erika's death is unknown at this moment, and speculating about it won't take us anywhere. So, let's be patient and wait until the official news come around.

Thank you,

Poor Letizia. How awful for her. I'm sure the King, Queen and Crown Prince will look after her.

El Rey agradece pésame por la muerte de la hermana de la Princesa de Asturias

The King is grateful for condolence for the death of the sister of the Princess of Asturias

The King of Spain was grateful publicly for the condolence that transmitted Karlheinz Koegel, founder of the society who awards the Prize of the Mass media that today Don Juan Carlos received, for the death today of Erika Rocasolano, sister of the Princess of Asturias.

Don Juan Carlos thanked for these words and said that he will make come ' his feelings of weighing the Princes of Asturias, before the very sad news of the death of the sister of the Princess of Asturias, which great we feel in the Royal Family '.

The founder of the awards said, before beginning the delivery of the Prize to the King Juan Carlos for his path for 30 years as chief of State of Spain, that they knew the ' sad news ' of the death of the sister of the Princess of Asturias and wanted to transmit his sorrow.

Juan Carlos I will return, since it was foreseen, on the same night to Madrid, after remaining two days in Germany in visit of work.

At half past five, the van carrying the corpse of Erika Ortiz arrived in the Instituto Anatómico Forense de Madrid, where the autopsy will be done. Photo by Hola:

According to sources of the investigation, it was Erika's boyfriend, Roberto García, who found out her corpse and called the police. It was however a doctor of the Emmergency UVI, who make sure she was already dead.

Meanwhile, the president of the Press Association of Madrid (APM), Fernando González Urbaneja, has shown his concern about the way "how the media is treating this case".

My support to Letizia, Felipe, the royals, and all her family. May they find peace in this time of hardship and loss, and remember the wonderful times they shared with her.

Like so many others are, I'm completely shocked. I couldn't believe it when I came to the forums just a few minutes ago. Such an unbelieveable tragedy. I lost my dad when I was only a small infant. So I obviously never really knew him. It is hard to grow up without a parent and it's still hard as an adult, mainly because I don't feel as close to his family as I think I would've felt had he been alive.

My thoughts and prayers are with the SRF and the Ortiz family. Such a lose for them. I reallly hope that they can have some peace during this difficult time.
