Honduran police reportedly found the bodies of the reigning Miss Honduras and her sister on Wednesday, six days after the two women disappeared from a spa in Santa Barbara. Maria Jose Alvarado, 19, and her sister, Sofia, 23, were both shot to death.
The Associated Press reports that women's bodies were discovered buried in a river near the spa, where they had been celebrating the birthday of Sofia's boyfriend, Plutarco Ruiz. Ruiz and his friend, Aris Maldonado, were arrested after allegedly leading police to the bodies.
"I can confirm that the Alvarado sisters were found," Leandro Osorio, the head of the criminal investigation unit, said, according to Sky News. "We also have the murder weapon and the vehicle in which they were transported to the site where they were buried."
Maria Jose was crowned Miss Honduras in April and was scheduled to travel to London on Sunday to compete in next month's Miss World Pageant.
