The news was first disseminated by the yo also Apoyo el Doblaje Mexicano community and confirmed by local means. His former voice-bandmario Mario Castañeda (voiced by Goku) and Lalo Garza (voiced by Krilin) remembered him via Twitter:

Just a couple of days ago we laughed with my castaway look, and today you are no longer Luis Alfonso… Somebody explain it to me…! Luckily you stay in your heart with your laughter and your jokes and the memories of so many years… Yesterday was a sad day… — Mario C Castañeda P. (@ccp_mario)
