Kidnappers in Mexico killed Little Boy director Alejandro Monteverde’s brother and father this past Saturday, September 19 despite. Monteverde is married to our Bellyitch Bumpatch alum Ali Landry.
Both her father-in-law Juan Manuel Gomez Fernandez and brother-in-law Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde were found murdered via a gunshot wound to the head despite a ransom reportedly being paid for their return, US Weekly reports.
Today, the family spread the ashes of the two men who were related by marriage to the former Miss USA winner.
I interviewed her award-winning husband Alejandro Monteverde this Summer in advance of the release of his movie Little Boy for another website I recall Monteverde mentioned being taken to the cinema as a child by his now-late father and that sparked his interest in filmmaking.
Earlier this year, Monteverde shared a tender photo of himself with his dad captioned with “Celebrating in San Miguel de Allende, with my best friend, my life mentor, the wisest man I know. My father.”
He’ll miss him and his brother for certain.
The two were kidnapped on September 4th while leaving their home in Tampico, Tamaulipas.
