Default Brazilian referee reportedly butchered, decapitated after killing player

From: http://blog.foxsoccer.com/post/54702...ed-decapitated

Octavio da Silva Catanhede Jordan was reportedly butchered and decapitated by a violent mob last week (Photo: FOXSports.com).
An amateur soccer match turned outright barbaric, leading to the deaths of a match referee and player in northeastern Brazil.
According to multiple reports from Maranhão, match referee Octavio da Silva Catanhede Jordan allegedly stabbed Josenir dos Santos Abreu to death after an argument with the player during a game on June 30.
The 20-year-old referee reportedly had a knife with him at the match and attacked Santos Abreu. The 31-year-old footballer was pronounced dead on arrival by a local hospital.


What subsequently happened was more appalling.


After witnessing the horrific attack, family and friends of the player reportedly invaded the pitch to lynch the referee, who was gruesomely quartered and decapitated by the mob, which later hung his head on a stake.


In an official statement, Valter Costa, police chief of Santa Ines in Maranhão, confirmed the ongoing investigation and assured the public that suspects were being questioned.


“Reports of witnesses have indicated some people that were in place at the time of the fact. We will identify and hold accountable all those involved. A crime will never justify another. Actions like this do not collaborate with the legality of a state law.”

Default Football referee attacked

Quote:
The barely believable incident happened in Maranhao, Brazil, last Sunday.
According to reports in Brazil, referee Otavio Jordao da Silva (20) fatally stabbed footballer Josenir dos Santos Abreu (30) during a heated moment of a match.
Santos Abreu is believed to have argued and then struck the referee after being unhappy with a decision.
It is believed the referee was carrying a knife throughout the match and fatally stabbed the player in retaliation.
Santos Abreu was rushed to hospital but died from injuries on the way.
Outraged by the incident, some spectators then apparently decided to inflict a gruesome revenge on the referee.
According to reports, the referee was tied up, beaten, stoned and quartered. They then put his head on a stake and planted it in the middle of the pitch.
One man, Luiz Moraes de Souza, 27, has been arrested over the incident. He has admitted to assaulting the referee but denied killing the man. Police are searching for two more suspects.
They are currently viewing video footage of the incident filmed by a witness with a mobile phone.
In a statement, the regional delegate of Santa Ines, Valter Costa, who is looking after the case, said: "One crime never justifies another crime. Actions likes this do not collaborate with the legality of state law."
This is ridiculous, makes me thankful I don't plan on becoming a professional footballer.

Damn....

And I thought the Dutch referee getting beaten to death was really bad but this.....damn!

Well, at least I can tick 'Football Ref' off of my list of potential careers. Seriously though, poor guy...

Why the heck did a referee need a knife at a soccer match. Sheesh, what an idiot. Goes to show once again that people take soccer way to seriously, even worse than hockey fans.

Because the Olympics is something completely separate from the World Cup and is bid on by cities years in advance.

Kinda makes our "heated" rules debates look a bit tame.

You gotta wonder about your sport if the ref's are packing knives.
