Mario Moreno Bernat, the grandson of one of the biggest comedians of all times Mario Moreno Cantinflas, was found dead in an hotel room in Mexico on Monday. According to authorities, he was found hanging from a pipe in the bathroom.
The 22-year-old reportedly arrived at the hotel with a 25-year-old woman named Esther Alina Morales Acevedo, where the two were using drugs. According to police, she said Moreno Bernat took his own life at some point while she was out of the room. The emergency call was made around 3 a.m.
Moreno Bernat was found hanging from a pipe in the bathroom of his room at the Santa Cruz hotel, located on the outskirts of Mexico City. The State of Mexico’s Attorney General is currently investigating the case.
Mario Moreno Bernat was the son of Mario Moreno Ivanova and Sandra Bernat. He had sued his father for corruption of a minor last year, saying he had made him drink alcohol at the age of 12 and two years later to take drugs.
“It completely changed my life, and because of it I don’t have the education or the tools to face life today,” Moreno Bernat said in July 2012.
