So tragic and unnecessary!

Former boxing champion Edwin Valero was found dead this morning, having hanged himself in his jail cell.

Police in Venezuela said that Edwin was found by another inmate and authorities were quickly alerted. When they arrived, they found Edwin still showing some signs of life, despite hanging himself with his own clothes from the cell bar. However, by the time they took him down, he had already died.

Edwin was in prison for the murder of his wife.

What a mess. Our condolences to everyone!

    What's so SAD about this? The guy murdered his wife - he was afraid to get punished - he killed himself

    Good riddance.

  2. 2

    A loss to the sport? Are you kidding, Perez? He MURDERED his wife and you're concerned about the sport? Seriously?

  3. 3

    RIP after what he did? Not where he's going

  4. 4

    SAD? You're fucking retarded Perez.

  5. 5

    "Such a loss to the sport."

    Get a grip!

  6. 6

  7. 7

  8. JoeyW says – reply to this


    Are you freaking kidding me? What do you mean 'such a loss to the sport'? The guy was in prison for killing his wife!! But then we shouldn't really expect anything else from a glorified pedophile as yourself Mario, should we?!

  9. 9

    Oh yeah this is SOOO fucking tragic! The world is less one wife murderer. Fucking idiot!

  10. 10

    The ONLY thing sad about this is the wife's family lost her. He murdered his wife and hung himself…self imposed justice! Nothing sad about that…not even to the sporting world…we don't need murdering athletes.

  11. 11

    Ummmm…maybe a poor kitty got hurt in the process. Cause thats the only way I see there being a loss here.

  12. 12

    The only sad thing about this is that the bitch didn't kill himself before he killed his wife.

  13. 13

    a loss to the sport?? there are lots of decent people in this sport that would be considered a loss if they accidently died in a car wreck or something, but the sport will be JUST FINE without him considering his crime. What a loss to HER FAMILY when he murdered her!

  14. 14

    What the fuck is wrong with you? He killed himself while in jail for MURDER and your comment is, "Such a loss to the sport." There's something clearly sick and twisted in your mind.

  15. 15

    Seriously? He sends his wife to the hospital several times before finally killing her and you say its sad that he is dead. Oh i forgot she was not gay so she doesn't deserve any sympathy.Personally I think this one had a happy ending.

  16. 16


  17. 17

    R.I.P.? He's a low life wife wife beater/killer!

  18. 18

    How can you say it was a loss to the sport???? HE KILLED HIS WIFE!!!! He deserves much worse that hanging himself. Disappointed in you Perez.

  19. 19

    Umm…. sorry Perez I tend to agree with 90% of what you say but… seriously?? A loss to the sport?? So sad?? The guy was in JAIL for murdering his wife. I highly doubt SHE would think it's a sad event that he hung himself.

  20. 20

    Nothing is sad and it's not a LOSS to the sport, Douchbag Diva. What part of, "murdered his wife" do you not understand? Think he'd be a safe neighbor? Should he have been able to continue in boxing just because he's Latino and was a former champion>? BS! You were just covering this story because he's Latino. Poor, poor Latino dirtbag.

  21. 21

    What the hell is so sad about this? The man continually beat his wife until he killed her, he was an outspoken Chavez supporter, and a critic of the US.

  22. 22

    So…I was gonna write what everyone already wrote, so DIDDO on what everyone said before me.
    For handmade, upcycled, and vintage check out my store!

  23. 23

    Yeah, not a mess…a GOOD FUCKING THING, you twat.
    I am sure it is cool with you because he murdered a REAL woman, not a man using his ass as a vagina.
    Screw you, Mario.

  24. 24

    He is not a loss to the sport of boxing. He was a disgrace to the sport, as is Mike Tyson and a long list of others. The true loss here is his poor dead wife…a sad victim of domestic violence. Despite a restraining order, he still got to her. Disgusting.

  25. 25

    this is the stupidest thing ive ever seen.
    the bastard deserved to die !
    why show sympathy for someone who murdered his wife?
    you're a typical american perez, so disappointed.

  26. 26

    saying his death is a loss to the sport will be like saying perez is such a loss to celebrity gossip blogs when you pass on. in my best napolean dynamite voice….IDIOT!

  27. 27

    You rip Tiger a new asshole because he CHEATED on his wife. Now you feel sorry for a guy that MURDERS his wife? Wow! You are a fucking idiot. Am i sensing some racism here? If this was anyone but a Latino, you would have crucified him. I HATE THIS FUCKING SITE!

  28. 28

    "A loss to the sport"? Jeez who cares? How about a loss to the family of his murdered wife? What a stupid and insensitive thing to say!

  29. 29

    A loss to the sport? I'm sorry, did I miss something? If Osama Bin Laden died would we consider it a loss to humanity? When Hitler died was a considered a loss to the German nation??? Absolutely not!!! I would HARDLY consider the suicide of a convicted MURDERER a loss to anything at all.

    Perez, please think about the context when making your posts. I am mildly offended that you would consider a murderer who hung himself a loss to the sport of boxing. That comment makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.

  30. 30

    OK Perez - do you maybe want to rethink your post - I'm sure you didn't mean it the way it came across!!

  31. 31

    This has nothing to do w/ him being Latino and everything to do w/ Perez or whoever wrote this post being a vacuous, ignorant person. WTF? Coming from a Latina that was one of the DUMBEST things you've ever posted Perez! Really? I think you should remove that sentence and just report that the murdered had a guilty conscience and served his own justice!

  32. 32

    Re: Tricia1013 – Sooo true!

  33. 33

    are you fucking stupid PEREZ!!?? There is video where it shows he goes into his estrange wifes workplace and threathen her with a gun. She didnt panick or anything, but the stupid bastard still shot and killed her at point blank. HE had it coming.

  34. 34

    No comment.

    I really hope the guilt of killing his wife affected him each and everyday while in Jail. That's probably why he killed himself.

  35. 35

    A loss to the sport after he murdered his wife? You need to apologize for being such a fool Perez.

  36. 36

    Are you serious Perez??? What's soo sad about this??? Who the hell cares about the sport - HE KILLED HIS WIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. 37

    beside the fact he had Hugo Chavez tatted on his chest and he murdered his wife. It's not sad what's sad is he beat his wife for years put her in the hospital numerous times and was protected by a Communist government that people in this country think is a good idea….

  38. 38

    You're a twat Perez.

  39. 39

    Is not sad, are you stupid? Tha guy killed and always beat on his wife, I'm glad he took his life… The worst part is that he is from my hometown…

  40. 40

    UM, WHO FUCKING CARES IF HE KILLED HIS WIFE. i dont know how their system works but i hate spending tax money on bitches

  41. 41

    ew, he has that crazy look too

  42. 42

    yeah im going to have to agree with everyone else? why is it sad or a loss to the sport– hes a murderer?

  43. 43

    Just goes to show the EXTREME Bias that you exhibit 99.9% of the time. You have no credibility at all when it come to reporting anything other than the things you think help your soap box. Most of you people in the "media" who have an outlet to reach other people abuse it to no end always pushing your own warped agenda onto everyone else. This is just another example of it. Why I am I not even surprised in the slightest?

  44. 44

    I tink all duh ho's here need to STEP!! Kno I'm sayin'?!?! Shut duh f up fo I bitch slap yo ass! Kno I'm sayin'?!?! Dis playa din kno how tuh handul hiz bitches! Kno I'm sayin'?!?!
    George Bush hates black people.

  45. 45

    the only thing that is sad about this is he had the ability to choose when he died, his wife, on the other hand, didn't. too bad no one else had the honor of choosing when to end this piece of shit's life.

  46. 46

    So sad? A loss to the sport? Seriously? BooHoo!

  47. KatMG says – reply to this


    A loss to the sport…?? That douchebag was notorious for beating his wife. I think the sport of boxing doesn't need a piece of trash like him. I am venezuelan and ashamed…boxing sure could use a tune up in sportsmanship considering the amount of boxers that beat their wives and girlfriends..

  48. 48

    I'm sorry, did I miss something here? R.I.P??? So Sad? WTF??? This scum sucker stabbed his wife to death, taking the mother away from two young children. I believe he hung himself in jail, and I hope it took him a very very long time to die. It's so sad only for two very young children with no parents and no comprehension of what happened. BURN IN HELL VALERO.

  49. 49

    OMG this really shows how retarded you really are Perez!

  50. 50

    This is the stupidest post ever written on your "celebrity blog"!

  51. 51

    Isn't it after having "hung" himself… I think this is the second time I've seen "hanged" misused on this site.

  52. 52

    Who cares? He killed his wife!

  53. 53

    this site just gets worse and worse! "a loss to the sport" are you kidding me?!!

  54. 54

    i agree with what everyone else is saying, what an inappropriate comment. I think you need to apologize.

  55. 55

    A coward to the bone !!! He murdered his wife and i'm betting that he used to beat her up too. Rust In Peace i say.

  56. 56

    PEREZ - he abused his wife - intimidated anyone that tried to help her - and hello?? HE MURDERED HER. And you think it's sad that she's dead - Reeeally? Really? You are disgusting

  57. 57

    OMG i agree with what everyone is saying. You are a fucking moron. have someone read your shit before you post. how is he a loss to his sport. he killed his wife. RIP my ass. Rest in Pieces. you piece of shit. what about her family. The minute he killed his wife, his life was done, his contribution to his sport was DONE. good riddence

  58. 58

    a loss to the sport? ummm…he was in jail, not like he's doing a lot of professional fighting *shrug*

  59. 59

    Give me an F-ing break Perez..SO SAD! The dude has a commie tattoed on his chest..and he MURDERED his wife after putting her into the hospital not too long ago! He was scum living on this earth! Seriously? More and more I wonder if people just read your jubberish just to get their blood pressure up, because thats what it is starting to be for me..it used to be a place to just read about mindless celebutards, but when you start talking politics and stuff you really dont have a clue about you are SOOOOOOOOOOOOO STUPID!

  60. 60

    "Such a loss to the sport"..get your priorities straight..this guy will only be judged by the fact that he murdered his wife..who cares if he was able to punch out guys as well.

  61. 61

    Lol I wouldnt be surprised if the inmates actually hung him, it happens every other day in Venezuela prisons. Thats they way of making justice.

  62. 62

    Sad? He beat the shit out of his wife more than once, tried to impede her from getting medical treatment and started badgering cops/medical personnel when they asked questions. He was a coward.

  63. 63

    "hanged himself"? hahahaha *hung

  64. 64


    Killed his wife, loser

    Buh bye

  65. 65

    NOT SAD…not a loss of anyone

    Killed his wife, loser

    There will be no resting in peace where he's going

    Buh bye.

  66. 66

    Haha apparently you did edit your post and took out the "loss to the sport" thing. You could at least be brave enough to either a) defend what you post or b) admit what you said was inappropriate and apologize but you choose to just delete it and act like it was never there. Sorry I don't see how a murderer's suicide was tragic. You're extremely harsh on people who cheat on their wives or roman polanski diddling a teenager but a woman beater/murderer gets your condolences?

  67. 67

    Why is this sad? Why do I care….He killed his wife….it's not unnecessary, or tragic. It's Karma….

    One less ass the taxpayers have to take care of. No sympathy here.

  68. 68

    He used to beat his mother too. Reading Perez's comment I figure the guy was gay since we are supposed to feel bad. The only better thing would have been if he were OPENLY GAY . Perez was doing the pity thing so he's probably gay aside from being Latino. Of course he could do no wrong. It's okay to beat your mother and beat your wife to a pulp and kill her. Thank you for your insight Perez. I hope his head popped off when he hanged himself and it took his whole system a while to figure it out. Then I hope Lucifer himself met him at the gates of hell.

  70. 70

    it's too bad he didn't pay your mother and sister a visit before he did this Perez. it would have been nice of you and your boyfriend/dog was at home too.

  71. 71

    R.I.P. means Rest in Peace, it's from the latin resquiat in pacem . Why do you want a murdering asshole to rest in peace? Check yourself, Perez. I don't believe in heaven or hell, but wish there were a hell for murderers where they were tormented with guilt for all eternity.

  72. 72

    This site's articles insult celebrities over personal problems yet supports foreign dictators and this sick man. What kind of disgusting people write these articles?

    Edwin Valero was a abusive pos…good riddance.

  73. 73

    Re: katterz

    Pictures can be hung, but people are always hanged.

  74. 74

    OK let me get this straight Jennifer Aniston announces her directorial debut and you viciously run her into the ground but a boxer who murdered his wife hangs himself and you praise him with RIPS and condolences i understand respect for the dead but you and your whole team really need to sort your priorities, i mean honestly i used to have respect for you just like many others but that is completely gone now and I'm sure most people here will agree. Please explain yourself on this 1.

  75. 75

    tragic and unnecessary shit they should give the guy a hero's funeral for saving the tax payers the cost of trying and executing the douche bag!

  76. 76

    Edwin? Why so friendly with a murder Marielito?(my nickname for you Perez). He killed his wife. Bear the crap out of her three times before. Beat the s** our of his own mother and his own sister. Rest in peace Perez?Hell no..may you Edwin go through the seven rings of hell many many times

  77. 77

    The guy was a wife beater and now a murderer and obviously had a shitload of issues. I'm sure he won't be missed.

  78. 78

    theres nothing sad about this.. he killed his wife. this douche did the world a favor

  79. 79

    I'm from Venezuela, and I tell you that beat his mother and sister sent the wife to the clinic several times from the blows that gave (the last time less than a month), was a drug addict and alcoholic. He killed the wife of multiple stab wounds on Sunday …. and step Chavez! The only thing I feel is that this could have been avoided, because, as was a follower of the president (and the wife never reported) did not put a prisoner or rehabilitated

  80. 80

    soo..why did he kill himself?
    and why did he kill his wife??

  81. 81

    "So tragic"?!? Are you shitting me? His death is not sad at all, what's sad is that he use to beat his wife and he eventually murdered her. I have no doubt in my mind that he certainly is not in "peace" right now.

  82. 82

    no….nope i am going to pretend i didn't read this…on second thought wtf!!!! dude should of stayed alive and suffered for what he did the bastard took the easy way out. although maybe his mom misses him i don'tthink his wifes family feels the same way! roting in hell is a lot more fun then sitting in a jail cell! idiot!

  83. 83

    it its a big deal this guy won all of his fights by knock out the 27 of them .. but that doesnt change the fact.. only god will judge him and am sorry for his two kids!

  84. 84

    it is such a big loss he won all his fights by knock out his first 18 fight won on the first round hw was pretty big deal .. but that doesnt change the fuck shit he did am so sorry for the 2 kids! :(

  85. 85

    sad that he committed such a heinous act, sad that he couldn't face the consequences of his actions.

  86. 86

    Tragic and unnecessary???? I will tell you what's tragic and unnecessary! A women who was abused and had her precious life taken away by a coward who more than likely committed suicide because he couldn't handle being sodomized in jail on the daily.

    That coward took the easy way out. He was not a man he was a pathetic excuse for a subhuman piece of fecal matter.
