There are too many celebrities who have been a victim of death hoaxes on social media. In fact, the latest addition is Mexican actress Kate Del Castillo, where her fake death trended on Twitter.

The mock-up news about the 43-year-old star emerged in the midst of her involvement in the "El Chapo" scandal. Allegedly, she was found lifeless inside her Los Angeles home. This instantly surfaced online, according to Latin Times.

As the news quickly spread like wildfire, many believed that the report was true and had much talked-about for hours. However, others claimed that the story was just made up to make waves and for users to earn more followers.

To recall, the "Muchachitas" star was called out for organizing the interview between Sean Penn and Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. In another Latin Times article, it was mentioned that the interview was published in Rolling Stone magazine, which was conducted before the notorious drug lord was caught.

In the Rolling Stone report, the 55-year-old filmmaker clearly gave credit to Castillo for making the interview with the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel possible. Reportedly, "El Chapo" intentionally reached out to these people to do his own autobiographical film, letting them know his life and achievements in the "drug trafficking world."

Now, Penn and del Castillo are under investigation for having a connection with the fugitive. It has been known that "El Chapo" was in hiding after he escaped the Mexican authorities during a prison break last year.

Meanwhile, a Mexican newspaper noted that the main office of del Castillo's own tequila company, called Honor del Castillo, has been abandoned for quite awhile now. The alcoholic drink is made at the factory located in Arandas in Mexico's Jalisco state, UPI reported.

In fact, security personnel in the area told the spread that "the place is empty and no one has lived or worked there for several months."

El Universal, the Mexican newspaper, conducted their own investigation on the issue, and found that the Miami main office is, in fact, a "ghost company." The Mexican government, on the other hand, is looking at the connection between del Castillo and "El Chapo," and whether it has something to do with her company.

They are now investigating if any drug money was involved in her business and her corporation's finances. However, del Castillo has already denied the allegations.

Del Castillo is the owner and spokeswoman of Tequila Honor LLC, which first operated in the United States.
