Big Mom was shot dead on Thursday afternoon (22)


The first crime happened on Thursday afternoon (22) around 5:50 pm, on 14th Street in Parque Piauí, when Adriano was at the door of his house and was surprised by a man who was with a partner in a black Palio car and managed to escape the crime scene.

Adriano had been sentenced to 17 years in prison for killing a disaffected man in 2012. In 2013, Adriano was arrested and served nine years in prison until he was put under house arrest with electronic ankle monitoring in April this year.

According to Lieutenant Colonel Sousa, commander of the 11th Battalion of the Military Police of Timon, the suspicion is that the murder would have been committed by the brother of the man that Big Mom had murdered in 2012.

”It’s one of the lines of investigation. He was in prison, including with an ankle bracelet, and the motivation, according to the people, is that the one who caused the crime was the brother of the victim of this crime that he had previously committed. The information shows that it was possibly a settling of accounts. He took advantage of a situation to carry out the crime in which he could easily escape. So we believe it was a planned thing”, says Lieutenant Colonel Sousa.
