Three gunmen stormed a house in Favela da Portelinha, located in the Cidade Universitária area of Maceió, state of Alagoas, Brazil and killed a married couple that lived there. Ana Lúcia da Silva sustained fatal headshot wounds and died on the spot, her husband Gordo was also shot in the head, but showed vital signs when an ambulance arrived and was taken to a hospital where he succumbed to injuries later. But because of that, he didn’t make it to the photos or the video.
The couple had reportedly just finished dinner and Gordo stood outside of their shack when the gunmen arrived. He quickly ran inside to hide but was chased and shot. His wife, who was sitting on the bed when her husband was killed likewise tried to escape but was quickly gunned down. In her hand, Ana Lúcia held what the reporter called “marica”. Jewgle translated it as “faggot”. Apparently it’s a specialty pipe used for smoking crack. The police believe the victim was smoking when she was killed.
The couple had three children, aged 3, 6 and 8 years. They were all in the shack when the gunmen arrived but the littlest one was sleeping and the other two managed to get out and seek refuge at the neighbors’. The couple had another child – 13 year old Weverson da Silva who was killed a month earlier. On the day of his death, Weverson was playing dominoes with friends and was shot and killed by a group of teenage robbers fleeing from a crime scene.
Given these fact, police assumed the couple was killed for one of two reasons – either due to their involvement with drugs by a rival dealer from the favela, or by people related to the murderers of their son because after he was killed, the couple promised revenge. Neighbors told police that the couple had just learned the identities of the killers and were planning to have them offed before the week was over.
