Despite her bright smile and bubbly personality, Sofia Vergara has been holding a dark family secret. A decade ago, her brother Rafael was gunned down by unknown assailants in Colombia. But there may finally be some closure, with a potential new break in the case.
According to Radar Online, the police may be ready to look into some new leads. Private investigator Marcos Rubio believes that with the passage of time, more witnesses will be ready to talk.
“I’ve learned that there were witnesses at the scene who were afraid to talk at the time, or may have been blackmailed,” Rubio said. “That was to be expected back then, but there have been whispers for years about who was behind the killing. It’s time the family knows the truth.”
Sofia was just 24 when the murder took place and by many accounts, is still haunted by it. As of right now little is known about Rafael’s killer, other than he’s most likely a resident of Barranquilla, Colombia. Let’s hope that the Vergara family finally gets the justice they deserve.
