Monica Spear was a beautiful telenovela actress who first came to fame as the 2004 beauty pageant winner of the Miss Venezuela competition. She and her ex-husband were murdered during a robbery on January 6, 2014 while on vacation in Venezuela with their five year old daughter who was also wounded. Her death was a tragedy, a needless loss of life but there are many questions about the actual motives behind the robbery.
Monica Spear was a telenovela star who was a regular presence on Venezuela television and she was a past Miss Venezuela winner. This woman was someone who even the most foolish, ignorant individual in Venezuela would have recognized let alone seven criminals as it is alleged were involved in the robbery attempt. Media reports claim that the assailants, who have been captured, have stated that she and her ex-husband resisted attempts to be robbed.
Monica Spear and her husband, Thomas Berry, a British businessman are rich and the thought of them refusing to hand over their belongings in a robbery does not seem likely. Entertainment insiders are beginning to believe that the death of Monica Spear may have been premeditated plan and was not just a robbery gone wrong. It is no secret that the level of crime in Venezuela is a very serious problem but the targeting of Monica Spear and her husband would only bring added publicity to a problem that before her death was something only discussed on the news but nothing was really being done to deal with the problem.
Criminals hate publicity and the last thing organized crime would approve is the killing of a public figure such as Monica Spear because they know it would bring attention to their illicit enterprises. There is something more to the killing of telenovela star Monica Spear than robbery and it is going to eventually be unearthed either by the police or the film industry, the only question is who will uncover the truth first?
