María José Alvarado Muñoz, 19, was crowned Miss World Honduras 2014 in April. She and her sister Sofia Trinidad, 23, were last seen on Thursday at the La Aguagua spa in Santa Barbara, Honduras, after attending the birthday party of Sofia's boyfriend, Plutarco Ruiz, 240 miles east in Tegucigalpa. Their bodies were discovered close to the spa, buried in a riverbank.
"Witnesses said my daughter left the spa with three men," the mother, Teresa Munoz, told reporters last week. "I tried repeatedly all night to call their cellphones without any response."
Allegedly killed by her sister's boyfriend (reasons unknown), she now can, for obvious reasons, not compete for Miss World.
