On the night of October 4th, 2015, in a rural area of Frei Miguelinho, state of Pernambuco, Brazil, were on their way to a bar, traveling by motorcycle when they seemingly disappeared. Upon investigation later that night, police found the two men on the side of the road and initially reported that they had been killed in an accident. However, subsequent investigation by the Civil Police showed the men to be the victims of homicide.
The two men, identified as José Neto de Lima, age 18, and his friend; Patrick Edvanilson of Sobral, age 19, had both been executed with close range shots to the head. Investigation showed that the bike had pulled onto the side of the road and then the men were approached and murdered. It’s unclear whether the men were forced onto the side of the road or if it was just bad timing. Nothing was stolen.
