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.
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.
