The former Miss USA’s father-in-law, Juan Manuel Gomez Fernandez, and brother-in-law, Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde, were found dead on Sept. 19 in Veracruz, Mexico, after being kidnapped and held hostage for 16 days. The Latin Times reports that a ransom had been paid for the pair’s release.
Neither Landry nor Monteverde have spoken publicly about the deaths, but Eduardo Verástegui, who was a producer on Monteverde’s film Little Boy, confirmed the deaths to ET and tweeted his condolences upon hearing of the tragedy.
"With a heart full of pain and sadness, I ask for prayers for my friend and 'compadre' Alejandro Gomez Monteverde and all his family," Verástegui wrote. "My deepest condolences to my soul brother, I love you so much 'compadre,' I put my heart in your hands and I join you in this deep pain."
