Brazilian Footballer Thiago Jotta da Silva Dies After Being Tortured And Shot By Assasins

Sep-26-08 4:40am

Thiago Jotta da Silva was a 25-year-old Brazilian soccer player who was had spells with Brazilian club Fluminese, European clubs Porto and Dynamo Moscow, and was also a part of the 2008 Beijing Olympics soccer team that lost it's semifinal match to Argentina. Silva, who was playing for Estacio de Sa Soccer Club, a second-division club in Brazil, had recently run into trouble with his girlfriend, Alyne Padula, whom he was trying to break up with. Unfortunately, she had other plans in how to deal with their separation.

Before he passed away, da Silva was able to tell the police that he had fallen into a trap last Thursday evening, shortly after discussing the end of his relationship with his girlfriend, Alyne Padula. The former Vasco player was overwhelmed by three people (including a member of the military police), all of whom are friends of the girl's aunt. He was handcuffed, beaten and tortured. When he tried to flee he was hit by three bullets. Both the former girlfriend and her aunt, Marcia Padula Viana, were arrested on Sunday as instigators of the crime, and accused of hiring the assassins to kill da Silva.

After two consecutive injury-plagued seasons, Thiago was finally coming back to his norm when he was brutally murdered.

This story is rubbish.

Olympic defender Thiago Silva has not been murdered. He played last night, and was even sent off.

The Thiago da Silva who was murdered is obviously another. Some of the "facts" in the text are also obviously wrong. There is no Estacio de Sa club in the second division national championship(this club plays in the second division of the Rio state chamiponship). The murdered player was capable of being selected for the Olympic national team, in spite of being injured for two consecutive seasons and playing for an unknown team in a regional championship second division, quite an achievement.

It did in fact sound a bit weird... No player from a lower division can really get picked for such high level competitions. Let's just hope no one died.
