Monica Spear, 29, Miss Venezuela 2004 and 4th runner up of Miss Universe 2005 was shot and killed during a highway robbery on the Valencia-Puerto Cabella highway, police said Tuesday. Monica Spear was slaughtered with her irish husband Thomas Henry Berry, in front of their daughter Maya Berry Spear. Their five year old daughter survived the attack, but was shot in the leg.”Spear’s murder is certainly the most high-profile in the country in several years, but only because she was famous in her own right, not because the incident itself was particularly out of the ordinary” said a venezuelan blogger and that’s why this situation is really sad. How it can be normal to kill someone ?
Monica Spear and her family were trapped inside the car and criminals shot 6 times.
The venezuelan queen lived in USA and she was back with her family in her country for holidays. Being murdered for being at the wrong place at the wrong time, it’s really sad. Justice needs to be served here, the goverment and the Police Dept in Venezuela needs to get justice done.
When I posted a tweet on my twitter account (@MissUniversNEWS) people denounced the Venezuelan political :
“I’ll tell u what’s happening, Venezuela the delinquency it’s out of hand concerning the regimen dictatorial ship.” (@NoelPereira2)
“unfortunately Venezuela is not safe for nobody! It can happen to anyone :(” (@shenixx)
“Thanks to Nicolas Maduro and The Goverment of Venezuela, where there is no security of life and respect for her.” (@Hjose15)
Message from the Miss Universe Organization :
“We were deeply saddened to learn of the tragic and senseless death of Monica Spear, Miss Universe Venezuela 2004 and her husband. Monica was known for her enthusiasm and outgoing personality when she competed at Miss Universe and was extremely well-liked by everyone. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her family and we pray for her daughter’s recovery.”
Venezuelan beauty queens expressed their anger:
Miss Universe 2008 Dayana Mendoza on her twitter account :
“Dear God where has my country gone?How many more innocents have t pay the price f this horrible selfishness and hate!Where is my Venezuela?”
“Incredibly devastating [email protected] my prayers are with you,your husband,your baby girl & your families.God hold you in his glory. RIP”
Dayana Mendoza lived in New York since the beginning of her reign as Miss Universe. And after her year, she decided to made her life in USA. Indeed, she knows that Venezuela is a dangerous country. Indeed, Dayana Mendoza was once kidnapped in Venezuela, and stated that the trauma taught her to remain poised under pressure.
Message from Stefania Fernandez, ex Miss Venezuela and Miss Universe 2009 :
“Con rabia y dolor por la noticia del asesinato de Monica Spear Miss Venezuela 2004 … Cuantas muertes más en mi país ?”
“With anger and pain about the murder of Miss Venezuela 2004, Monica Spear… How many death again in my country ?”
Taliana Vargas, 1st runner up of Miss Universe 2008 and colombian actress posted this photo on her twitter account. She said “Que dolor. #nomasasesinatos”. Such a sad reality.
On this sad day, I also have a thought for Miss Venezuela 2000, Eva Ekvall who died in 2011 after a breast cancer. Why the world of beauty queens is so tragic ? They were so young, so beautiful, they had a family. Sad news.
