On the night of January 3rd, 2014, 25 year old Luiz Carlos Wichnecki (nickname Kiko) met his end by being shot 27 times by gunmen armed with pistols (9mm and .45) and a 12 gauge shotgun in front of his residence in Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná – Brazil.
He was approached by a car and the occupants identified themselves as police. As soon as they exited the vehicle they shot Luiz as many times as they could, probably until running out of ammo. The majority of the shots appear to have hit his abdomen, causing the intestines to spill over. He was also shot in the legs and chest. Despite the savagery of the attack and his wounds, investigators claimed he didn’t die immediately. Must have been quite a site seeing his guts hanging from his belly and knowing he was truly done for.
According to police, Mr. Wichnecki (sounds Eastern European to me) was being investigated for a series of crimes, including robberies in luxury hotels. Not wanting to make anticipated presumptions, this seems to be one of those deaths that were very well deserved. He doesn’t appear that innocent to me and who knows, maybe he killed people before. And if not, he did cause other people suffering with his crimes. Live by the sword, die by the sword. A life of poverty is preferable to one of crime. At least poor people have integrity, and that is very respectable.
