Viri Benitez came to the realization that her fiancé, Fred Munoz Nataren, just wasn’t Mr. Right. The signs were all there. He was reportedly violent and the domestic abuse in their relationship had progressively gotten worse. So, Viri courageously walked away from Fred. Unfortunately, her brave actions were met with resistance on Fred’s part.
After she told him she no longer had no plans to marry him, he went ballistic. A few weeks after Viri ended the relationship, Fred showed up at her house unannounced, claiming he just wanted to see her.
According to the Mirror, things went awry when Viri decided to open the door. He allegedly grabbed her by the hair and threw her into the backseat of his car. Viri stated that she was driven to what appeared to be a garage and that’s when the beating began. Fred bludgeoned Viri with a dumbbell until she was nearly unconscious. After beating her, he proceeded to rape her.

During a recent interview, she recounted the series of events that led to the kidnapping. She also shared graphic details about the sexual assault and brutal beatings she suffered at the hands of her ex-fiancé.
“I had finished with him a few weeks earlier because he was violent and I didn’t want to marry him. When he arrived at my house I told him I was going to work. When he offered to take me and I refused he went mental. As he was beating me he was saying he was going to destroy my face so that no one would want to be with me. He accused me of humiliating him. I begged him to stop but he just hit me harder until I was half-unconscious.”
Luckily, Viri was able to escape. She reportedly fled from the garage to a nearby restaurant. But, unfortunately, Fred also fled. Local authorities are still searching for him.
“An arrest warrant has been put out for the man and it will only be a matter of time until we find him.”
A Facebook group titled, “Caso Viri” has been created in honor of Viri Benitez. Photos of the brutal assault were also uploaded to the Facebook page. Needless to say, the graphic nature of the photos is quite shocking, and may be offensive to some viewers. Authorities are still searching for Fred Munoz Nataren.
