Great job parole board. That sure was the right murder convict to release from prison. It only took him 2 months to kill again and as before – he killed using the same tool – a type of machete modified for cutting sugar cane. His second murder was also committed in the same town as his first.
In May of 2011 – mere one and a half year ago – 30 year old Joel Mota Júnior was charged with murder of 31 year old Manoel da Silva Pereira whom he hacked up with a machete used for sugar cane harvesting. Parole board must not have considered him a threat to the public cause they let him go, only to have him kill again 2 months after the release.
Fast forward to November 21, 2012 and Joel Mota Júnior killed again using the same weapon. Likewise, his second murder was committed in the same town as his first – Medeiros Neto in the state of Bahia, Brazil. Perhaps the only difference between the two killings was the fact that this time around he killed a woman – his girlfriend, 46 year old Marinei Cruz Silva. Whatever she was thinking hooking up with a murderer.
Joel Mota Júnior delivered a single blow to the head of the victim, near decapitating the woman who died on the spot. When asked why he killed her, Joel Mota Júnior answered by saying this:
Ninguém mata à toa e que sempre existe um motivo para matar
Bing Translator says it means the following:
Nobody kills for nothing, that there is always a reason to kill
He further said that the woman acted jealous so he had himself a few drinks and killed her. He justified his first murder with an accusation that the man whom he had killed was also a murderer.
