Gunmen shot dead a former Miss Venezuela and her British-born partner in front of their five-year-old daughter, who was wounded in an attack that dismayed the crime-plagued nation, authorities said Tuesday.

Monica Spear, a 29-year-old soap opera star, and Thomas Henry Berry, 39, were killed in what appears to have been a botched robbery after their car broke down on a highway in northwestern Venezuela late Monday, police and prosecutors said.

My best friend was murdered in Venezuela four years ago. The stories he told me about the poverty and the government down there would make you cry. I wouldn’t go there for love or money.

Their car broke down after someone put a large pointed object in the road, didn't it?

I had seen Monica Spear on several novelas on Telemundo. She was quite stunning, and I always thought she could easily be a crossover actress like Kate del Castillo who has been popular in English, and Spanish Speaking roles.

Coming soon to your country!

Er, wait, it’s already here. Such as the couple gunned down by four #SonsOfBO as they were leaving a New Jersey mall last month.

Has a Thanksgiving dinner with a young exchange student from there just after Hugo took power. I told him that I hoped his family, well off middle class technocrats, could immigrate to the US and work in the oil industry in the US. He didn’t understand the necessity and I told him, you will.

I found it notable that the writer started out the article saying, "Gunmen shot dead a former Miss Venezuela and her British-born partner in front of their five-year-old daughter...".

Later in the article the writer reveals Thomas Berry as "husband".

This is an "I see what you did there" thing... if these wordsmiths use the word "partner" in place of "husband" enough, the brain-dead readers will soon begin to accept the word "partner" (a known euphamism for queers shacking up) in place of the word "husband".

Soon, homo "marriage" is completely normalized... because someone insinuated as much over and over and over again in the press, and ignorant people accepted it as truth.

Sorry, I know my comment has little to do with crime and violence in Venezuela, or Spanish language soap operas... but there is something going on here I had to point out.

No, their child, Maya, turned 5 this past October. It's sad that with all the beautiful places in Venezuela- it's a hell hole.

Here’s the husband....

***
Article refers to him as “partner”, so I assume shack-up and not husband.

Oops! I see he is the husband.

Ignore my #16, sockmonkey. The writer drew me in, just as Rodmala has outlined.

Well said, Rodmala. Sadly, you are so right.

Bastards!

The guys who did this need to die a horrible, painful death.

I hate getting on a soap box... frankly, I am not one of "those people" that froths at the mouth about crap that "should" have nothing to do with me (e.g. child molesters, late term abortion, gay "marriage", animal abuse, &c.), but... I just had to point out what was really going on with the article.

I simply desire to live in a world where women are wives and men are husbands... not "baby mammas" or "life partners" or "friends with benefits"... Still it seems that modern culture is trying to alienate me from my beliefs.

No... no effing way.

I hear you. So sick of watching our culture circle the drain.
