In a video that is circulating through social networks, two young women who would have been missing for three days appear to be stabbed to death by members of the Northern Family criminal faction (FDN) , which operates in much of the Amazon. There is no confirmation of when the file was recorded, but the crime was carried out in a forest area of the Viver Melhor housing complex in the northern zone of Manaus, according to military police in the region.
According to a police source, the victims were reportedly abducted by suspects in a neighborhood located in the area of the 25th Interactive Community Company (Cicom) and taken to a thicket in the housing area, where they were stabbed in cold blood.
In the video, the assassins wield several stab wounds in the neck and face of both victims, who were apparently doped but alive before being killed cruelly.
For what we are investigating a suspect who was taken to the police station to testify, they [victims] possibly had a love affair with the murderers, the family member of one of the victims was the one who denounced the suspect, the police source said.
The body s of the victims have not yet been located by police, who are searching the region on the basis of information released by the suspect, who is being held at a police unit for further clarification of the crime.
Police also investigate a third disappearance that may also have links with the deaths. Preliminary information indicates that a young man, friend of the two disappeared, was also executed by soldiers of the FDN, but his body has not yet been found. The names of the victims were not disclosed by the police.
