LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A Los Angeles-based music executive for Live Nation was identified as one of the victims in the collapse of a 12-story Florida condominium that killed at least 97 people, authorities said.
Theresa Velasquez, 36, was a confirmed fatality in the June 24 collapse of the Champlain Towers South condo, the Miami-Dade Police Department said in a statement.
She had flown into Miami hours before the collapse to visit her parents at the condo, both of whom also died in the collapse.
She was the 95th fatality identified in the collapse, police said. Theresa was an impassioned leader at Live Nation, who elevated every project she was part of, at the same time breaking down barriers for women, and the LGBTQIA+ community, the entertainment company said in a statement.
We will always remember and honor the impact she made, and will miss her dearly.
The bodies of Julio and Angela Velasquez were recovered and identified previously.
