Crime in DF
In 2019, when he was 18 years old, Victor was arrested on suspicion of having murdered his own father with six knife blows, in Ceilândia, in the Federal District.
At the time, the suspect told the PM that the murder happened after an argument with his father. The military said that when they arrived at the scene, the young man still had the knife in his hand. The argument between father and son reportedly happened because the father didn’t want his son to smoke marijuana at home.
At the time, he was acquitted of the crime and was hospitalized for at least a year by court order, after presenting a report with a diagnosis of mental disorders.
