Monica Spear, the 2004 title-holder, was pronounced dead Monday after an attempted robbery on a Venezuelan highway.
According to the Huffington Post, Spear, her husband and their 5-year-old daughter were involved in a car crash and attacked by unknown assailants, who shot both parents and left a bullet in the child’s leg.
Another former Miss Venezuela, 1984’s Carmen Lechin, was indicted this week for causing a disturbance on an airplane and interfering with a flight crew attendant. She allegedly went berserk on a flight from Houston to Bogota, Colombia, in June.
Also: Gabriela Alexandra Fernandez Ocando, a contestant in the pageant in 2008, was arrested last year for allegedly being linked to a Colombian drug lord.
No wonder Venezuelan “Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis is looking for love on our shores and not his own!
