Salsa singer known as ‘La India’, was transferred yesterday morning to Pavia Hospital in San Juan (Puerto Rico), after being found unconscious inside a residence in Santurce.
In its preliminary report, the police said that the singer, 44, whose real name is Linda Viera Caballero, had a broken nose and a large bruise on the forehead area.
Police arrested the singer’s boyfriend, Javier Padilla Gonzalez, 32, as a suspect for questioning. The police is still investigating whether the attack against the singer is related to a call received by the Emergency Services, about an incident involving four people.
The singer of “Nunca voy a olvidarte” and who achieved fame after singing and recording “Vivir lo nuestro”, a duet with Marc Anthony, was moved this afternoon to the prosecution to testify.
