Venezuela is the murder capital of the world. The crime rate is so high that it defies logic. In the latest attack on innocent civilians, robbers killed former Miss Venezuela, Monica Spear along with her husband in cold blood. They are survived by a four year old daughter.
They hadn’t harmed a fly in their life. Former Miss Venezuela, Monica Spear and her British expat husband, Thomas Henry Berry, were shot dead by thugs and ruffians in a place where criminals are rampant. The brutal way they were killed by thieves who fired automatic weapons through their car windows led to outrage across the nation.
The former Miss Venezuela was crowned with the honorable title a decade ago. She later on began appearing in soap operas. Her family had tried to persuade her to move to the USA where they were residing. But she loved her native land so much that she refused the offer.
The couple had separated last year, yet it was their daughter for whose sake they remained in touch with each other. They were on vacation and Spear posted several pictures of herself enjoying the leisure time. In Venezuela many people do not venture outside their homes at night for fear of the criminal element that is loose in the dark.
Something similar happened to this couple. Their car was stopped in the center of the road by a booby trap that punctured its tires. Then when they called in a tow truck, the robbers appeared out of nowhere and started firing away at the couple who had locked the doors of their car.
The two were instantly killed and their daughter was injured in the leg. She is currently in the hospital and being taken care of by relatives. The president of Venezuela has vowed to investigate the matter and inflict the most exemplary punishment upon the criminals responsible for this heinous deed.
