Beauty Queen Killed Minutes After She Posted Meals Photo on Instagram

A former Miss Ecuador contestant was killed in a restaurant just minutes after she posted an image of her meal to social media, according to reports.

Landy Párraga, 23, — who allegedly had links to an Ecuadorian crime boss — was fatally gunned down while eating at a shopping center in Quevedo, Ecuador on Sunday, April 28, according to The Telegraph, El Pais and El Comercio.

She posted a photo of the octopus ceviche she ordered at the restaurant to her 173,000 followers on her Instagram Stories, according to The Telegraph.

Shortly after posting the image, two armed gunmen entered the restaurant and reportedly shot her three times before they fled the scene.

The shooting was captured on cameras inside the restaurant and showed Párraga standing at a table next to another person before the gunmen entered and started firing.

The beauty queen reportedly had links to Ecuadorian drug trafficker Leandro Norero, as she was mentioned in text messages obtained on his phone, according to The Telegraph and El Pais. The conversations were found as a part of Operation Metastasis, an investigation which seeks to find criminals accused of corrupting Ecuadorian state officials.
