It used to be, that the state of Santa Catarina was considered the safest state in Brazil, even by us here at Best Gore. Back a few years ago, while Brazil was ruling the world of gore, only traffic accidents came out of SC. But that has not been the case for a while. These days, SC is as dangerous as the rest of Brazil and this post only further confirms it.
Palhoça is a municipality in the state of Santa Catarina. It is part of the metropolitan area of Florianópolis. In this municipality, in the early hours of November 22, 2017, a young couple was kidnapped, beaten and set on fire by assailants. It is suspected that the couple was killed by members of CV (Comando Vermelho) for their involvement with the rival PCC (Primero Comando do Capital).
The Civil Police of Palhoça has still not located the body of the woman, but the charred remains of 18 year old Rudimar Gonçalves Muller were already found in a thicket in the Pacheco neighborhood, near the BR-101 highway.
The killers filmed the action and posted the video on the internet. It shows them clubbing the young man and then setting him on fire. Then they appear to turn on the girl, and set her on fire as well, however whereas her body has not been found, whether she was indeed killed, or handed a pussy pass per Brazilian standards, remains to be seen.
According to Florianópolis police, nine people have been murdered in Greater Florianópolis in the last two days. And that’s just one city in the state of Santa Catarina. Definitely not a safe place anymore.
