This was your typical motorcycle drive by murder as happen in Brazil every day, except that this time around, the assassins dismounted to stab the victim. To finish him off, they put a 12 gauge shotgun projectile in his eye.
The hit took place on Tuesday March 5, 2013 in the town of Santa Luzia do Norte in the metropolitan region of Maceió, Brazil. The victim was identified as 21 year old Wellington Cirilo da Silva. He was killed near where he lived. His relatives told police they didn’t know who would want him dead. That seems to happen often.
