Actress Ali Landry and her husband Alejandro Gomez Monteverde are mourning the death of the Mexican director's father and brother after they were kidnapped and killed. Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde and his son, also named Juan Manuel, were snatched after leaving their home in Tamaulipas, Mexico earlier this month (Sep15). A ransom demand was made, which the Monteverde family reportedly paid for their relatives' release, but the kidnappers failed to keep their word and the two men's bodies were found in Veracruz on Saturday (19Sep15), 15 days after they were reported missing to authorities. Landry and Monteverde have yet to comment on the tragedy, but the Little Boy filmmaker's producer pal Eduardo Verastegui has sent his condolences to the grieving family via Twitter.com. The message, written in Spanish, translates as: "With a heart full of pain and sadness, I ask for prayers for my friend and 'compadre' Alejandro Gomez Monteverde and all his family. 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." Landry and Monteverde wed in 2006 and have three children together** Ali Landry and Husband Alejandro Gomez Monteverde 2009 AFI Fest - Screening Of "The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus" Held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre Hollywood, California - 02.11.09 Featuring: Ali Landry, Alejandro Gomez Monteverde Where: California, United States When: 01 Nov 2009 (1 Picture)
