I Guess Authorities Can Close That Murder Case Against Boxer Edwin Valero

It was an open and shut case. You know, because Valero hung himself  ;ast night while in police custody. That ties up the case in a nice little bow for investigators, doesn’t it?

Valero was arrested Sunday morning by the Carabobo State Police in Mexico after apparently confessing to hotel security that he had murdered his 24-year-old wife, Jennifer Carolina Viera de Valero, at the InterContinental hotel in Valencia. Authorities state that Valero hung himself with his own clothes at some point overnight.

As a boxer, Valero was 27-0, winning all his fights by knockout,  but was currently serving a suspension imposed by the WBC. Some thought he could have been a potential opponent for Manny Pacquiao. Not so much anymore.
