Monica Spear, who was crowned Miss Venezuela in 2004, split her time in between her home country of Venezuela and Miami. She was a graduate of the University of Central Florida, and a successful actress who most recently appeared on Pasíon Prohibida on Telemundo. 

“There’s no words to describe our pain,” her father, Rafael Spear told News 13 in Orlando. “Our plan is to bring Maya since she’s now alone in the world. Our plan is to bring her here, and have her grow up in the States.”

The beauty-queen documented her travels in the week leading up to her death on social media. She posted one particular haunting video on Instagram, which depicts her looking at the camera while riding a horse before she turns away and blows a kiss. 

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family and friends of all affected at this time.
