The reigning Miss World Honduras, María José Alvarado Muñoz, and her sister, Sofia Trinidad Alvarado, were found murdered Wednesday. The bodies of the sisters were found on top of each other in a shallow grave beside a river in a mountainous area. The sisters had been missing for some days before their bodies were found.
Two suspects of the murder were arrested, Plutarco Antonio Ruiz Rodriguez and Aris Valentin Maldonado Mejia. Ruiz is Sofia's boyfriend. According to CNN en Español it is believed that this is a crime of passion. The police also believed that there are more people involved in the crime, not only the two who were arrested.
Miss Honduras was supposed to leave for London in a few day for the Miss World pageant.
