Body of an unidentified man, approximately 25 year old was found with eyes gouged out and several gunshot wounds in a cane field near Conjunto Village Campestre II in uptown Maceió, capital city of the state of Alagoas in Brazil. No further info could be learned about the identity of the victim or his executioners, or why was his execution accompanied by eye goaging. Likewise, it was not clarified whether the eyes were gouged out before the execution, or after (I suppose this is something forensic experts could tell by examining the corpse).
To subject the victim to torture by eye gouging is rather unusual for Brazil, where most executions are carried out quickly and rather painlessly. I wonder what prompted the killers to gouge the victim’s eyes out. Could it be something similar to cutting the victim’s fingers off and stuffing them in the victim’s mouth as is practiced with snitches in Mexico? Did the victim see something he was not supposed to see? But then again – seeing something is not quite the same as ratting on someone. Rats seek authorities out to snitch. Witnesses mostly happen upon a scene.
Or maybe there is no message behind gouging. Maybe the killers were just being sadistic for the moment…
