On October 4, the 26-year-old mother protected her family from a couple of burglars who broke into her Miami home brandishing Uzis, The New York Post reported. Pacheco, an Instagram model and OnlyFans star, was in her bedroom when two men burst through her front door, opening fire at her husband, Daniel, and his friends, according to security footage obtained by the Inside Edition.
