Vicky Palacios was a Mexican actress and fitness trainer who died on August 1. Palacios was known for her roles in “Rudo and Cursi” and “Saving Soldier Perez.” Her death was confirmed in a tweet from the Mexican actors’ union.
Palacios was a native of Alvarado, Veracruz. In May 2019, Palacios was admitted to a hospital after suffering from a case of peritonitis, a hole in the intestines. It’s unclear at this point if that condition contributed to her untimely death. Vicky Palacios’ cause of death has not been made public.
Several media outlets reported that Vicky Palacios died from peritonitis, but Arturo, his son, says that since May his mother’s health began to deteriorate, entering the hospital several times. Arturo told La Prensa r: “She had a liposuction that had gone wrong and her bowel was perforated”. When she was intervened for liposuction in May, during the operation her bowel was perforated and caused severe peritonitis, which is an infection in the peritoneum.
The actress born in Alvarado, Veracruz, was admitted to a public assistance hospital, where they did everything possible to save her life. But she died after being hospitalized. Arturo does not reveal where his mother had liposuction.
According to Palacios’ IMDb page, her acting career began in 1985 in the movie, “The House that Burns at Night.” In that role, Palacios starred alongside Sonia Infante, who also passed away tragically in 2019. Infante died in a Mexico City hospital after suffering from a heart attack while she was being treated for paralysis on July 16.
Most recently, Palacios had appeared in multiple roles in the TV series, “Until the End of Time,” in 2015.
For a time Palacios dated professional wrestler, Konnan. This led to her making numerous appearances at professional wrestling events. Konnan is currently signed to Impact Wrestling and is perhaps best known in the U.S. for his run in WCW in the 1990s and 2000s.
