Octavio Ocaña’s toxicology test revealed and suspicions confirmed
It is common to perform toxicology screenings after a car accident, especially if someone is injured or dies. After a tragic and unexpected death, authorities reveal the results of the toxicology test performed on the body of Mexican actor Octavio Ocaña, who gave life to ‘Benito’ in the television series ‘Vecinos’ (‘Neighbors’). Unfortunately, many people’s suspicions have been confirmed.
Octavio Ocaña, 22, died of a gunshot to the head after a manhunt by the Municipal Police of Cuautitlán Izcalli, in the state of Mexico. Several versions of how the events occurred are still circulating, but journalist Gustavo Adolfo Infante recently revealed one more piece of the puzzle.
Octavio Ocaña’s toxicology test revealed and suspicions confirmed
In a Facebook live, Gustavo Adolfo Infante announced the results of the toxicology test performed on Octavio Ocaña. According to the evidence obtained from the Prosecutor’s Office, the young Mexican actor “tested positive for alcohol and also positive for marijuana.”
The television host also specified in his video that “these are the first results” and that there is still a lack of other evidence to complete the investigation, such as “ballistics tests, gunpowder, cameras and video of the C5.”
What happened to Ocaña?
“The Attorney General’s Office of the State of Mexico is advancing in the proceedings to explain the causes for which a 22-year-old subject, who has already been identified, lost his life due to a gunshot to the head, and whose body was found inside the car he was driving, which was found on the Chamapa-Lechería highway, at the height of the Prados Iztacala neighborhood in the Atizapán municipality of Zaragoza,” says the official statement.
However, Adolfo Infante claimed that when they found Ocaña he was still alive. In fact, there is a video that confirms it because he is seen moving inside the car. Finally, the journalist said that he was able to confirm that Ocaña had arrived alive at the Lomas Verdes trauma hospital.
The police version
According to the police, municipal officials received a report of a gray Jeep van indicating that the people on board were carrying a firearm. They asked them to stop, but they did not comply and a chase began in municipal territory until they reached the Chamapa-Lechería highway, where the car crashed.
Ocaña “was found injured with a firearm in his hand; however, he was still alive,” so the officers requested support from the Civil Protection emergency units and he was immediately transferred to the Lomas Verdes hospital. Moments later he lost his life, Informador reported. SEE LIVE HERE.
His relatives don’t believe it
Two other people were riding in the car with Octavio Ocaña. They were subdued by police officers. According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the two subjects, who identified themselves as friends of the actor, told authorities that they had been drinking alcohol before the accident.
The authorities’ version says that Octavio Ocaña accidentally shot himself, but his family does not believe this version of events. “They planted the gun and alcohol on my son,” said young Mexican actor’s father in disbelief.

Among other things, his family members hope to get the opportunity to prove that he was not using drugs and alcohol at the time of his death. He also reaffirmed that Octavio Ocaña did not have a gun and therefore his death was not an accident. In fact, Attorney General’s Office of the State of Mexico’s version of events was outrageous.
With the help of the president
Azteca Noticias reported that, after taking time to deal with the grief over the loss of his son, Octavio Pérez will initiate the necessary legal processes to obtain justice for the way in which the actor lost his life. According to Milenio Noticias, hours before Octavio was buried, his father spoke to the press and said he wanted to be able to meet with the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to help him with his son’s case.
Octavio Pérez, stated that he wants the president’s help because he is also from Tabasco and could support the Ocaña family. “My son was a public figure and he is from Tabasco, the President is from Tabasco, we hope he supports us because I have never asked anyone for anything, but in this I do ask you to please give us your hand, because this is not going to stay like this, because what they did was outrageous”, he said.
