Default Edwin Valero Suspected of Killing Wife

Quote:
Police: Boxer Valero suspected of killing wife
CARACAS, Venezuela -- Suspended WBC lightweight champion Edwin Valero was detained on suspicion of killing his wife on Sunday, police said.

Venezuelan Federal Police Chief Wilmer Flores said Valero was arrested after police found the body of his wife in a hotel in the city of Valencia.

Flores said Valero left the hotel room around dawn on Sunday and allegedly told the hotel's security personnel that he had killed Viera.

Valero's lawyer, Milda Mora, did not immediately answer telephone calls seeking comment.

Wow.

This idiot just ruined his life and what was shaping up to be a very successful and lucrative career. Not to mention he murdered his wife AFTER breaking her ribs and collapsing her lung. Ridiculous. He deserves whatever punishment he gets.

'Wow' is right. I love watching this guy in the ring, but he is pretty clearly a mental midget and possible psychopath.

It is nothing new to boxing to draw some shady characters, but this is a little over-the-top, even for this sport.

What an idiot. Professional Boxers/MMA Fighters needs to hire some psychologist after their previous fights.

RIP Mrs. Valero.

Edwin Valero = New Carlos Monzon.

Monzon is one of the greatest middleweight champions of all time, but his legacy was tainted after he killed his concubine in 1989.

It should be noted that Venezuela does not carry the death penalty or life imprisonment. I believe the maximum sentence is 30 years.

How beloved is he in the country? Does he have superstar status that might allow this to get a year in fake prison?

Well, he has a tattoo of the Venezuelan flag w/ the president Hugo Chavez in the center. So we'll see how his investment pays off...

He is/was a popular figure in Venezuela, but I have to think that this may severely scar his image everywhere. If he is guilty, I don't think that a year in jail can possibly be justified. I would say 10 years at the minimum.

Regardless, if this is true, he is done as a prize fighter in America. There is no way that Top Rank could justify having a guy of such poor moral character on their payroll.

Tyson did time for abuse and I'm sure that if Pacman did something in the Philippians (not that he would seems) Money has a way of altering what is considered common sense issues.

He might disappear for a year or 2 but could come right back

Are you retarded? Sick shit like this happens and sometimes justice isn't served. He could get a presidential pardon stay away from big fights for like 2 years and the general public won't know a damn thing about it.

Millions are involved here and you don't think he could get the opportunity to fight again? Where is your brain? I didn't say what he did was right i'm saying that a great deal of corrupt shit goes down in south america and to think this can't slip through the cracks is beyond naive

Edit: Correction not just South America but the world. The Pacman tangent is the fact if someone as beloved as him ever did something I'm positive the country would cover it up. It's not a Pacman thing its the fact Boxers in countries like this can get away with a lot because they protect the image of a country.

I think you are underestimating the seriousness of murder in comparison to other crimes. OJ was a beloved figure prior to his murder trial. He became one of the most hated people in the United States and that was after he was acquitted.

If Pacquiao killed his wife, he would become a pariah in America.

If this is true, Valero is done as a prize fighter in this country. Bet on it. In fact, he would never be able to get a Visa to even enter the US.

I understand its murder, trust me I really do. However, this is something that I'm already noticing isn't being blasted on major media networks. This has the potential to fly under the radar. If it's not on espn sometimes the sportsfans just don't realize what people do. We also have to wait for a trial and a great deal of time to see the true outcome of this

MAJOR EDIT: Okay, after reading it again I just noticed that he confessed so he will definitely get a deal. Yeah, we won't see him for a while sorry on that. I somehow took it as a case of getting caught
