On Friday night, September, 5th, 2015 in the Murder Capital of the World (Caruaru), two men on a motorcycle (no way), were ambushed by another duo on a motorcycle. Well, I don’t think I need to tell you what happened next…motorcycles are Death’s preferred method of travel in this region of the world and she really makes a killing (pun intended).
The shooting took place on José Barboza Lima street in the Indianópolis neighbourhood of Caruaru, state of Pernambuco, Brazil. The rider of the motorcycle, identified as Otacílio Dantas da Silva, age 33, was pronounced dead on the scene. His unidentified companion was still alive and rushed to hospital, but soon succumbed to his injuries. He was unable to give any description of the assailants or any information regarding what happened.
Two military police officers happened to be on patrol in the area at the time of the shooting and identified two “white” males fleeing the scene. The gave chase but the murderous pair abandoned their bike and disappeared into a wooded area. They have not yet been found or identified.
The men were the first and second murders of September for Caruaru. 144 so far for the year 2015. Damn.
