SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Puerto Rican salsa singer and musician “Lalo” Rodríguez was found dead Tuesday at a public housing project in the U.S. territory, according to police. He was 64.

Police said that while there were no visible signs of violence on his body, an autopsy would determine the cause of death.

The singer, who was born Ubaldo Rodríguez Santos, had struggled for years with drugs and alcohol and was previously charged with possession of cocaine.

Rodríguez made his musical debut in 1980 with the album “Simplemente… Lalo” (“Simply Lalo”) and is best known for his 1988 hit, “Ven, devórame otra vez” or “Come, Devour Me Again,” featured on his fifth album “Un Nuevo Despertar” (“A New Awakening.”)

The singer also once formed part of Eddie Palmieri’s band.
