On Sunday November 25, 2012 decomposing corpse of an unidentified man with his hands tied emerged from a lake in Fazenda Santa Tereza, near Riacho do Peixe (Fish Creek) in rural Agrestina, state of Pernambuco, Brazil. Experts who examined the corpse determined that the man was murdered with 3 shots to the head before being thrown in the lake.
Experts also speculated that the rope murderers used to tie victim’s hands with had a stone attached to it to keep the victim at the bottom of the dam, but the stone came loose, allowing the victim to emerge as a floater.
The killing probably took place 3 days prior to the discovery but by that time, the body has already started to decompose. Whether in a lake or in a sea, in Brazil you always risk a chance to bumping into a corpse when going for a swim.
