The wife of Brazilian former professional soccer player Joao Rodrigo Silva Santos, made a horrifying discovery on Tuesday.
João Rodrigo Silva Santos wife began to worry when her husband didn’t come home on Monday night (Oct 28). The next morning the former professional footballer’s wife opened the door on her way to work and found his severed head on their front step.
OMG, that is so horrible! But wait till you read on what else they did to him…so sad.
Here’s the drop according to CNN:
The head was inside a backpack, police said. Santos’ eyes and tongue had been gouged out, according to Brazilian media reports.
Now police in Rio de Janeiro are investigating the grisly killing, though they haven’t said who they believe is behind it.
Santos, 35, was a forward for a number of mostly second-tier Rio de Janeiro football teams before retiring and opening a health foods store.
His death comes at a time when football fans worldwide are shifting their focus toward Brazil, which will host the World Cup in 2014.
This is a very sad story, and I’m praying for the wife, and family!
