3. Miss Honduras found dead
Police have found the bodies of Maria Jose Alvarado recently crowned Miss Honduras and her sister near where they disappeared six days ago.
The boyfriend of Miss Honduras’s sister confessed to the killings.
Plutarco Ruiz led the police to a river bank where the bodies of Maria Jose Alvarado, 19, and her sister, Sofia, 23 were buried.
The Independent reports that Plutarco Ruiz apparently shot his girlfriend, Sofia, because she was dancing with another man. After a fierce argument, he pulled out a pistol and fired at Sofia first, then at Maria Jose as she tried to flee.
Maria Jose Alvarado was due to leave for London to compete in the Miss World Pageant this week. A pageant representative said Honduras would not compete in the contest this year, given the tragedy.
4. Jacqui Lambie to stand firm against Palmer
The relationship between Clive Palmer and Jacqui Lambie has sunk to a new low, with the Tasmanian senator vowing to ignore “abusive threats” from her party leader who has branded her a “liar”.
The feud within the Palmer United Party erupted earlier this month when Senator Lambie said she would defy her party if necessary and oppose all government legislation in protest to proposed pay rises for Defence personnel.
On Wednesday morning she reversed her thinking on the Government’s changes to Future of Financial Advice (FOFA) laws, and teamed with Labor, the Greens and other crossbench senators to have them overturned.
The PUP reacted to Senator Lambie’s change of heart by stripping her of the party’s deputy leadership in the Senate and suspended her from partyroom meetings.
But Senator Lambie said she would stand firm.
