Tragedy in Venezuela: Edwin Valero Arrested For Wife’s Murder
Edwin Valero was arrested Sunday on suspicion of murdering his wife in his home nation of Venezuela, according to eluniversal.com. The body of Jennifer Viera de Valero, 24 and mother of their two children, was found in a hotel room in Valencia early Sunday morning. Valero and his wife had arrived at the hotel on Saturday evening April 17 at approximately 11:00 pm. They requested one room for the evening (it has not been reported if their two children were present). At 5:30 am, the boxer went down to the lobby area and, according to El Universal, allegedly confessed to the crime to hotel security. Jennifer Viera de Valero had reportedly been stabbed multiple times. Immediately, the crime was reported to members of the Carabobo Police force who arrived on the scene. The troubled boxing champion who dazzled ring observers earlier this year with a stunningly impressive KO win, was arrested moments later and transferred to the General Command of Police of Carabobo. This horrific tragedy will very likely end the promising career of the exceptionally talented and exciting boxer from Venezuela who was mentioned as a potential future opponent for Manny Pacquiao.
