According to reports, the reigning beauty queen and her sister had attended a birthday party last Thursday night in the resort city of Santa Barbara. They were last seen alive leaving the party and entering a car without a license plate. The sisters were set to fly to London days later for the Miss World contest but obviously never made it. So what exactly happened?

Well it looks like Muñoz's boyfriend, Plutarch Ruiz may have had something to do with it. The bodies of both women were found in the village of Cablopales not far from Santa Barbara. It appears that they were both shot and killed. Alvarado was shot from behind and her sister from the front. The crime scene also looked like it was cleaned up and both Plutarch Ruiz and another suspect, Aris Valentin Maldonado have been arrested and identified as suspects.

"Both are being questioned as part of the investigation into the disappearance of [Ms Alvarado] and her sister,"police spokesman Jose Coello said. "We hope to establish what role they may have played." This is absolutely devastating! What in the world could have motivated the men to kill these poor women? These girls were so young too. Alvarado was only 19 and Muñoz was 23. They had their whole lives ahead of them and were clearly beginning to follow their dreams. I don't care what their motive was, if these two men are in fact guilty I hope they rot in jail and somewhere else too--if you catch my drift!
