An ex-con (and an ex-da Silva for that matter) had the honour of becoming the first murder victim of April in Caruaru. Identified as 21-year-old Hélio Erivonaldo “Nino” da Silva, he was found dead in a rural area. Hélio had a prior for domestic abuse and lived near where his body was found. Upon inspection it was evident that he had been stabbed numerous times.
Due to the sizes of the puncture wounds, investigators were able to determine that two different knives had been used in commission of the crime. One of the knives was recovered from the scene and police are currently searching for two suspects in connection with the homicide. You know what they say: April (blood) showers bring May flowers.
