A graphic murder and torture occurred in Brazil on Saturday, shocking many citizens. Fox News reports:
A Brazilian soccer star was reportedly found nearly beheaded with his genitals “severed” Saturday, his body dumped on a road known as a spot where criminals dispose of bodies.
Daniel Correa Freitas, 24, who plays for Sao Paulo FC – one of the biggest soccer clubs in the country – was discovered in Sao Jose dos Pinhais in the southern part of the country, police said.
An official cause of death wasn’t immediately confirmed. However, a municipal guard told the local newspaper Band B that Freitas was the victim of “torture.”
“From the appearance of the body, it was a very violent situation,” the municipal guard told the paper. “The man had two deep cuts on his neck, his head was nearly beheaded, and his genitals were severed.”
The rampant crime and corruption in Brazil symbolized by this horrible murder is a reason why Brazil has overwhelmingly voted for right-wing politician Bolsonaro.
