Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most dangerous videos ever😳😳 HIS idea not MINE🙈— Monalisa Perez (@MonalisaPerez5) June 26, 2017
This Minnesota couple is the epitome of the "ride or die" love affair. Monalisa Perez (19) and Pedro Ruiz III (22) were a young couple and parents to a three year-old daughter with one on the way. On their YouTube channel the couple decided to try something different to get more viewers: dangerous stunts.
When Pedro had the crazy idea to shoot at him through an encyclopedia Monalisa was skeptical but eventually agreed. According to her statement to Normandy County police, Pedro showed Monalisa a book that he'd shot at before and the bullet didn't go through. Unfortunately, when the couple re-enacted the stunt it went terribly wrong. Monalisa stood about a foot away from Pedro as he held an encyclopedia in front of his chest as a shield. Using a .50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol Monalisa shot a single shot that went through the book and killed Pedro.
The expectant mother is currently charged with second-degree manslaughter.
