Miko Sotto was part of the prominent Sotto family in showbiz. He was a great-grandson of former Senator Vicente Sotto and the grandson and grandnephew of Marcelino Antonio O. Sotto and Vicente Sotto, Jr. respectively. His parents were Ali Sotto and Marcelino Antonio "Maru" Sotto, Jr., brother of incumbent Senator Vicente "Tito" Sotto III, Val Sotto and comedian Vic Sotto. His granduncle Filemon Sotto was also a former senator in the Philippines. His cousins were actors Oyo Sotto, Ciara Sotto, Danica Sotto and Gian Sotto.
At the time of his death, he was romantically involved with actress Angel Locsin, who became Oyo Sotto's girlfriend a few months after his demise.
Sotto died after he fell from the ninth floor of a condominium building he was living in for 4 years in Mandaluyong City before dawn on December 29, 2003.
According to initial investigation, Sotto was with his cousin Oyo Boy Sotto, two other friends, and a helper at the San Francisco Garden Plaza Condominium in Bonifacio Avenue, Mandaluyong.
According to reports, a security guard saw Sotto seated at the railings of the balcony.
Sotto was about to part with his friends and tried to get down from the railings when his foot allegedly got caught in a plant box, causing him to lose his balance and fall from his perch.
Sotto, 21, was immediately rushed to the nearby Mandaluyong Medical Center where he was declared dead on arrival. "The patient died from multiple skull fracture", according to the physician on duty at the hospital.
From the Mandaluyong hospital, Sotto was brought to Makati Medical Center but doctors there were also unable to revive him.
His mother, Ali donated Miko's corneas to the Eye Bank of the Philippines at the time of his death. Two weeks thereafter, his corneas were transplanted to two women.
