This is so horrible!
Mónica Spear, a former Miss Venezuela and up-and-coming TV star was killed in an attempted robbery, according to police!
The 29-year-old was on vacation with her ex-husband Thomas Henry Berry and their 5-year-old daughter, Maya. The family was driving along the Puerto Cabello-Valencia highway in Venezuela when their car crashed!
Officials believe both Mónica and Thomas were shot to death by unknown gunmen while Maya watched! The little girl survived but was shot in the leg!
Unbelievable how heinous of a crime this is!
Mónica had been living in Miami recently and is a 2004 graduate of the University of Central Florida.
Her father, Rafael spoke about the tragedy of losing his daughter, saying:
"This is a great loss for us. She was very charismatic, a very good daughter, a very good mother and she loved Venezuela."
Our hearts go out to the families and friends of Mónica and Thomas. We can only hope the assailants who did this are tracked down and brought to justice!
