January 07, 2014

Former Miss Venezuela Monica Spear and her ex-husband Henry Berry were shot dead in an attempted robbery attack late Monday night.

Spear, 29, with her ex-husband, 39, and 5-year-old daughter, was driving on the highway between Puerto Cabello and Valencia in Central Venezuela when the attack happened.

According to police report, the family’s car may have broken down giving robbers a chance to go near them. The whole family was shot at. The husband and wife died but their daughter who got a bullet wound in her leg survived.

The authorities said on Tuesday that this is the latest high-profile case of violent crime in Venezuela, one of the world’s most violent nations.

Friends and colleagues of the former Miss Venezuela are saddened by what happened.

Spear won the Miss Venezuela crown in 2004. She lived in the United States and was only on vacation in her native country. She starred in various telenovelas in Venezuela and also in the U.S.
