Brazilian Soccer Referee is Brutally Slain in Retaliation For His Stabbing Player

Reportedly, a soccer referee who fatally stabbed a player has been beaten, stoned, quartered, and decapitated following a match in the Brazilian state of Maranhão.

On June 30th 20-year-old referee Octavio da Silva Catanhede Jordan showed 30-year-old player Josenir dos Santos Abreu a red card in an amateur match contested in the town of Pio XII. Rather than leave the pitch, Abreu attempted to attack the referee, who retaliated by whipping out a knife and repeatedly stabbing the player. Abreu died of his wounds en route to the hospital.

In retaliation, a mob comprised - at least in part - of family and friends of Abreu rushed the pitch and overwhelmed da Silva, lynching and stoning him to death, before removing his limbs and decapitating him. They then placed his head on a stake in the middle of the field.

There are some reports that an arrest in the case has apparently been made following police study of a video of the lynching that was uploaded to social media.

Utterly horrifying and beyond comprehension.

That is seriously some messed up ish. I saw the video of the people at the morgue trying to put the ref back together, and it is grisly.

My curiosity got to the best of me too. Gruesome.

Color me morbidly curious as well. And.... Yikes. The morgue video is pretty bad. The picture of him chopped up and head on a stake in the field is pretty bad.

You can find it on your local neighborhood reddit, that's if you can stomach it.

But damn, Brazil. You soccer crazy.

Pardon me while I scratch Brazil off the list of countries I'd like to visit. Seriously WTF. Isn't Brazil hosting 2 major international sporting events in the near future? They've got some major PR work to do down there after this. As well as stadium security issues. Sick and sad.

Yeah a friend of mine played it for me unexpectedly over the weekend (one second we're watching MLB.TV the next he's showing me a video from Brazil with no preamble). It was so grisly that it almost bordered on gruesomely comical. I mean they were literally playing humpty dumpty with the poor guy.

Yes. Yes. This is a sign they have stadium security issues and a PR problem and not THE *BLEEP* ING RIOTS THEY HAD OUTSIDE THE STADIA DURING THE CONFEDERATIONS CUP BECAUSE THE CITIZENRY BY AND LARGE OBJECTS TO THE USE OF STATE FUNDS FOR FIRST WORLD ATHLETIC COMPLEXES RATHER THAN UPGRADING THEIR HOUSING OUT OF SHANTYTOWN STATUS.

FIFA's trying to sweep this under the rug, but it happened.

I don't see how a murder 400 miles away from any of the host cities, on a cleared out bit of forest has anything to do with stadium security for the World Cup. It's like saying NFL players pose a security risk at the Superbowl because of Aaron Hernandez.

Obviously the authorities should have known about a game in a town of 20,000 thousand people and ordered for a line of security to the left of the palm tree.

This is unbelievable, firstly a referee pulls a knife, then is killed! I don't think you can judge the country on this. It's quite shocking how brutal the human race can be, just last week I watched a documentary on culture in the Middle East, there was part of it where a woman, who was chosen as a wife for this man, but she refused. What was described on the documentary was that a mob of 200+ men took the woman, punched and kicked her to death, all because she wanted to choose.
