Borja died at the age of 41 this Tuesday, June 4, after receiving several bullets to the head and chest in broad daylight. The alleged murderers, who fled in his car after the shooting, are identified and belong to a clan based in Bargas (Toledo), related to drug trafficking.

He recently attended the funeral of a band member. 20 years ago he was arrested accused of brutally attacking a young man. He and others arrested were sentenced to six months in prison. And now, in 2024, he was accused in a case for drug trafficking and large-scale money laundering in the Central Court of Instruction number 5 of the National Court (supposedly for a cocaine theft in Valencia). It is unknown if his death is related to these events. The agents in charge of the case aim for a settling of scores. Both his vehicle and that of the shooters were from rental companies.
