Echevarria was found dead in his room this morning when family and employees found it odd that he didn’t show up to work and wasn’t answering his phone. 

Another source tells us that the family believes it was a heart attack, but are waiting for medical examiners to determine.

Police have confirmed his death and said that the body was found today at the Epic Hotel in Miami. The case is still under investigation.

Herman and Alexia Echevarria were founders of Venue magazine and also stars of Real Housewives of Miami. The couple separated in 2015 and recently divorced, according to sources close to the family.

“The Echevarria family is heartbroken over the sudden passing of our patriarch Herman Echevarria this morning. He was a family man, a hardworking businessman, dedicated to helping others and a pillar of his community that was loved by everyone who’s life he touched,” Alexia said in a statement. “We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of grieving.”

So sad.
