Maria Jose was only 19 years old, while her sister Sofia was 4 years older. The beauty queen was crowned Miss Honduras World 2014 last April and was already set to compete at the Miss World 2014 pageant to be held in London.

She was supposed to fly already to London last Sunday and join the other candidates of the pageant, including our very own Miss Philippines Valerie Weigmann. The latter meanwhile will already take her flight to London later.
