In Manaus today (5th July 2018), the body of a decapitated man was found.
He had no ID on him but he had a tattoo on his left arm that says ‘Vanderlara’. Apparently, there were 'sharp objects' + women's bags at the scene.
25 year old Alex De Almeida Silva + a 15 year old boy were arrested.
The man's name was Edivaldo Costa Soares.
On the day of the murder, Edivaldo went to Alex's house, along with the 15 year old boy, to use drugs. It seems that Alex had noticed that Edivaldo had a purse with him which was the same one that had been stolen from his aunt a few days prior. Alex began to strangle Edivaldo, then he decapitated him.
The 15 year old boy buried the head in a field. It has now been located.
