Hearing that someone named da Silva was murdered in Brazil is about as rare as seeing a murder without flip flops… Except that against all odds, this da Silva died with flip flops still on. Fuck! Can’t have it all.
This kid, named José Antonio da Silva was only 16 year old. José Antonio, who lived in the village of Boa Ventura in the state of Caruaru, Brazil was returning from a football game with his brother known as ‘Rafa’ and a cousin on Tuesday, December 13, 2011.
The three rode bicycles, but José Antonio later separated from the group and as he was riding down Juvêncio Figueiredo da Costa street in Lajes Caruaru, he was approached by two men on a Honda Biz motorcycle who fired at him twice from a 12 gauge shotgun. He was hit in the head, right behind his right ear, and dropped to the ground dead on the spot.
There goes another Brazilian da Silva. Caruaru seems to be a busy place with murders.
