Beauty queen Monica Spear posted scenic photos and videos of the Venezuelan countryside online in the days before her death. Now, days after attackers gunned down the star and her ex-husband, investigators say Spear’s camera was a key link that helped them track down her killers.

Police found the camera inside the home of one of seven suspects authorities have arrested in connection with the slayings, the head of Venezuela’s national crime investigation agency said Thursday. Four suspects are still on the loose, he said.

No one has been charged, but officials say there is evidence linking the group of suspected gang members to the double homicide. The high-profile case has galvanized Venezuelans to turn up the pressure on their government to act on the country’s high crime rates and prompted pledges from officials to end the violence.

The victims’ five-year-old daughter, Maya, witnessed the roadside shooting and suffered a gunshot wound herself but survived.
