A recent tragedy
The case of Belford Roxo took place over a month after the massacre of São Gonçalal, where four of the dead and seven were wounded. Men in the car traveled to the bar at Rua João Damasceno, in Porto Velho, where the party was held. Among the dead were Spanish teacher Jose Luis Caetano and marketing expert Janete Santos, who lived in front of the bar.
According to police 72. DP (São Gonçalo), who work in support of the murder police, one of the lines of investigation is that criminals are part of a drug gang that controls the nearby Morro to Feijão. The goal would be to expand the domain across the region by intimidating the villagers. Another hypothesis was also explored that it would be a militia action, also for the purpose of controlling that part of the neighborhood. According to the witness, none of the victims had any involvement in the crime.
