I don’t know what’s sadder – the young age of the victims or the reason why they were murdered.
On the morning of Tuesday July 2, 2013 an awful double homicide took place in the city of Panelas, not far from Caruaru in Pernambuco, Brazil. The victims were two little brothers – 14 year old Cássio Olavo da Silva nicknamed Perua and 10 year old Rosenaldo Olavo da Silva nicknamed Olho de Brecha. The former was executed with 3 headshots, the latter took two shots in the head and one in the neck. The two died in a brotherly embrace, close to each other.
According to police, the brothers were users of crack cocaine and marijuana and were involved in several thefts in and around the city. Agnaldo Olavo da Silva – father of the victims said he was aware of his children’s actions and expected this to happen because the boys had received death threats.
Just when you thought Brazil could not get any more messed up…
