The state of Pernambuco has become the state for murder and mayhem in Brazil. Pernambuco, as you may or may not know, is home to Caruaru, deemed one of the most violent places on earth, neck and neck with Rio de Janeiro. Now, on to the case at hand…
On February 11th, 2015 in Jupi, state of Pernambuco, Brazil, 20 year old Edenilson Santos da Silva was just standing on his porch, minding his own business when not one, but two, motorcycles each carrying two men pulled up in front of his home. Being a resident Brazilian, Edenilson knew that this could only mean one thing and he took off into his home. All four men got off of their bikes and followed Edenilson into the house and shot him nine times, killing him.
Edenilson was an ex con who had previously done time for robbery and it is speculated by investigators that this murder was linked to drug trafficking. Whether this was the work of a rival gang or not is unknown.
I’m telling you there is something about Santos. Now we have a case of a man with both Santos and da Silva in the same name! What sorcery is this?
Badass props to DaSilvaFlipFlops for this.
