'Tití' Fernández's daughter laid to rest in Belgrano

Coach Américo Gallego looks at football commentator Marcelo Araujo who speaks with relatives and friends of Miguel ''Tití'' Fernámdez while they wait for his arrival in the Ezeiza International Airport in BA province.

The daughter of journalist Miguel 'Tití' Fernández, María Soledad, has been laid to rest in a funeral home in Belgrano, City of Buenos Aires, after passing away in a traffic accident while covering the World Cup in Brazil.

The 26-year-old's body arrived this morning at Ezeiza international airport accompanied by her father, who had been working at the tournament with TV Pública. The journalist touched down in Argentina at 5.25am, and was met by colleague Marcelo Araujo and ex-footballers Américo Gallego and Leonardo Astrada.

María Soledad will remain in the home until tomorrow, when the funeral ceremony will take place.

The journalist was killed instantly when a rental car travelling from Sao Paulo to Belo Horizonte lost control when it was hit from behind by another vehicle. Fernández’s daughter was in the back seat and did not survive the impact. The other two passengers, Argentine television producers, suffered minor injures.

Brazilian police, meanwhile, have released the owner of the vehicle involved in the fatal accident, after giving a statement to authorities investigating the case.

Local newspaper Estado de Minas reported that Rafael Campos Costas, 23, was set free after his arrest yesterday evening. Marcos Vinicuis Da Silva, 21, remains in custody.

The youth was driving the Volkswagen Golf at the time of the crash, and is being investigated for aggravated manslaughter, due to the fact that he fled the scene of the accident.
