A famous Cuban actress was found dead this week along the shoreline in Miami Beach, Florida, authorities said.
Broselianda Hernández Boudet, 56, was discovered unresponsive by someone walking on the beach near 79th Street and Collins Avenue around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, news station WPLG reported.
The body was later identified as Hernández Boudet, who was well-known in Cuba for films such as “Habanera” and “Things I Left in Havana.”
Relatives said that Hernández Boudet had gone out on Tuesday night to purchase cigarettes, but never returned home, WPLG reported.
The actress was born in Havana, Cuba, but had been living in Miami for five years at the time of her death, the outlet reported.
The official cause of death hasn’t been released, but police said they believe she drowned, WPLG reported. No foul play is suspected in the case.
