This young woman was gunned down in Buique, Brazil either on Saturday the 26th or Sunday the 27th of November, 2011. Her name was Claudecy Lima da Silva Bessera (I know, lots of them da Silvas in Brazil – are they inbreeding or something?), she was 26 year old and was married to a farmer with whom she lived in a rural area of Sítio São Luiz. Her brother, Dielzo Lima Silva spent time in jail on suspicion that he killed a military police officer, 27 year old Carlos André Campos Lopes, whose body was recovered last month in Buique.
According to the civil police, the victim’s family received death threats after the killing of Carlos André Campos Lopes and said the day Claudecy Lima disappeared never to return, a black vehicle entered their residence and took the woman with them. The men in the vehicle claimed to be with the police and insisted that they were taking her to the police station for further hearing.
This obviously didn’t happen and instead of to the police station, the men took her outside of the city and executed her by a gunshot to the head. Her body was recovered near EP-270 road, 4 miles from the city center.
This was the second summary execution style killing of a woman in less than a week in Buíque this month. The police are trying to paste the pieces of puzzle together to see if the two murders are somehow related.
