Carlina Duran secret marriage
The rules state that those vying for the crown must be single. But Magaly Febles, director of the Miss Domincan Republic contest, said Tuesday it had been discovered that recent winner Carlina Duran was married in 2009.
Contest organizers scheduled a Wednesday night news conference to give the crown to the first runner-up, 24-year-old Dulcita Lieggi.
Duran has not commented publicly on the discovery of her true marital status.
