Mourners gathered Thursday at a Caracas cemetery chapel for the wake of former Miss Venezuela and soap-opera star Monica Spear and her ex-husband, who were gunned down in a highway ambush in front of their 5-year-old daughter. President Nicolas Maduro, under pressure to curb random violence, suggested the murder of Spear and Thomas Henry Berry was a targeted hit. Maduro said, "That assassination seems more like a contract killing," providing no evidence to back up his theory.
