Family members of an actress, model and television personality have been found dead in Mexico. USA Today reports that two bodies found Sept. 19 near the town of Pueblo Viejo were identified as Juan Manuel Gómez Fernández and Juan Manuel Gómez Monteverde, the father-in-law and brother-in-law of actress Ali Landry.
The two men had been reported kidnapped on Sept. 4, according to a report from the state’s attorney general.
“According to the report, a vehicle allegedly used by the kidnappers was found, and an investigation by the attorney general’s office is ongoing,” USA Today reports. “The report says that Fernández and Monteverde had suffered brain trauma and had been dead for several days before the bodies were found and identified by relatives.”
Landry, who hosted the hidden-camera show “Spy TV” and appeared on the UPN sitcom “Eve,” is married to Mexican film director Alejandro Monteverde. Landry was crowned Miss USA in 1996, and may be best known as the Doritos girl from a series of sexy commercials that debuted at the Super Bowl in 1998.
She was married to TV personality Mario Lopez for a short time in 2004.
