Vasquez has been suffering from migraines and hypertension weeks leading up to her death.

A spokesperson for the LAPD told Radar that the case has been handed over to the Los Angeles Coroner. A representative for the medical examiner exclusively told Radar that the case is currently "deferred."

"Additional tests and information were ordered to determine the cause of death," the spokesperson said. "It could take several months."

The family of the late Vasquez has been taking the passing hard.

"10/22/1990 - 5/11/2017? (Still living in our hearts) my baby girl, my first daughter of a kind," her father Orlando Centeno Jr. wrote on Facebook. "I am the father I am today because you first taught me how to be one! Then came your sisters, my angel crew. I know what it's like to Father sons (and) daughters - I love you forever, Queen Bee. So, so hard."

Her mother Lisa added, "Vaneza, my sweet, sweet beautiful baby - your passing has left me destroyed forever but I know you are at peace in Paradise. I love you, my alpha child."

Vasquez's family would not respond to Radar's request for comment.
