A Venezuelan actress and beauty queen was shot to death with her ex-husband during a highway robbery after their car broke down on vacation, police said Tuesday. Their 5-year-old daughter survived.
Monica Spear Mootz, 29, had starring roles in several telenovelas and was Miss Venezuela in 2004. Her former husband was identified as Henry Thomas Berry, 39.
Family friends said that although the couple had split up a couple of years ago they remained close and spent vacations and holidays together for their daughter’s sake.
“They were a great couple,” said Luis Dominguez, who ran an adventure tour company with Berry and spoke to him Sunday while he was on the road.
“They were having the greatest time. He said, ‘I’ll see you soon.'”
