The murder of Mónica Spear and her ex-husband Thomas Henry Berry that occurred Jan. 2014 on a highway in Carabobo, Venezuela, where the couple was killed in an attempted robbery and their daughter was shot and wounded in the leg, is still a case that many people talk about.

The gruesome and heart wrenching incident, which left the South American country in shock, now lives in a 256-pages book called "Capitulo Final: El Homicidio de Monica Spear." It was released in 2014 by journalists Deivis Ramírez Miranda and María Isoliett Iglesias. After an in-depth investigation on the couple's death, the journalists released the publication that includes shocking details about the murder. Now, almost two years since the tragic death, the authors introduce a new version of their book.
