Miss Honduras, Maria Jose Alvarado who is 19 years had gone missing with her sister, Sofia Trinidad, after a party last Thursday has been found murdered by Honduran police according to reports from Associated Press. Miss Alvarado was supposed to fly to fly to London later this week for Miss World 2014. The night she and her sister went missing they were both celebrating a friend’s birthday.
Four people were under investigation after she went missing but Miss Alvarado and her sister’s disappearance was not taken very seriously in the beginning and Police chief Jose Coello originally said they were not treating the pair's disappearance as a crime. The sisters were last seen leaving the party by getting into a vehicle.
In the meanwhile on Monday four people including Trinidad's boyfriend had been arrested and are under investigation since he was one of the last people to see them alive. Police Chief Coello confirmed: "Four people are under arrest. They include the owner of the party venue and Sofia Trinidad's boyfriend. They are being investigated."
Honduras is one of the most violent countries in the world and suffers from very dangerous criminal gangs involved in drug trafficking and other criminal activities. This incident will surely dampen the mood when the Miss World pageant well be broadcast live from London on December 14.
