The mysterious death of 16-year-old Peruvian volleyball player Alessandra Chocano has local police seeking answers and are talking to people within the vicinity of what happened. One person who was there was Vancouver Whitecaps and Peru national team striker Yordy Reyna and police is expected to be talking to him about the night in question.

It’s important to note that Reyna hasn’t been charged, in fact no one is yet. According to America TV in Peru and The Providence that Reyna was with a group of his friends and met up with a group of Chocano’s friends as Reyna drove everyone to a club.

At the end of the night, Chocano and a man who was supposedly her boyfriend, went into a friend’s apartment while everyone else waited outside. About ten minutes later, the boyfriend ran out and said Chocano collapsed. When everyone came up, they saw Chocano laying in a pool of her own blood and died of a cerebral and pulmonary edema.

There’s a chance that there’s no foul play but police is making sure that’s the case because there seem to be some unanswered questions. It doesn’t seem like Reyna will be charged but if I was a police officer, I would ask Reyna if he noticed Chocano experiencing some of the symptoms that would indicate she was having an edema. That would help determine whether or not there’s any foul play. Either way, it’s a horrible tragedy.
