I try real hard not to stereotype Brazilians, I really do, but unwittingly I end up doing so… Mr. Reinaldo Santos Silva (hey, not my fault a vast majority of the Brazilian population shares this surname) was shot fifteen times in the village of Kennedy (fancy name) in Caruaru, Brazil. After borrowing a friend’s car which he used to look for an apartment to rent, so he said, Mr. Silva was approached by two individuals who performed multiple shots, hitting him all over his body, and here goes the list. Shot two times in the head area, one shot hit the cheek and the other hit right above his ear, eight in the torso and abdomen area, three hit his left hand, another hit the armpit and one more made it’s way to his arm. Those guys really wanted to make sure he was dead. Reminds me of the mob hits. Shot two times in the head by your best friend.
The two suspects ran away on foot according to witnesses. The family refused to talk to the press but police confirmed Mr. Silva was an ex-con.
I have alluded to situations like this one in the past and to me this seems to be just another inscrutable case, where the killers will probably never be found. On the other hand, these guys are using good quality cameras to document these murders, unlike the Thais and Indonesians that seem to have been stuck with 2003 cell phones.
