A photo with the address of lawyer Roberto Zampieri, shot dead on December 5th, in the Bosque da Saúde neighborhood, in Cuiabá, was found on the cell phone of Brazilian Army colonel, Etevaldo Luiz Caçadini de Vargas. The retired military officer is accused of financing the execution of the professional.

During the investigation carried out by the Civil Police Intelligence Unit, a screenshot of the victim’s office address (internet search), dated October 9, 2023, less than two months before the lawyer’s execution.

The colonel was denounced by the perpetrator of the crime, Antônio Gomes da Silva, and the intermediary, Hedilerson Fialho Martins Barbosa, during a statement to the Civil Police. The criminals reported that the colonel had paid the amount of R$20,000 for the executor to commit the crime. The agreement was that he would transfer another R$20,000 to Antonio later, which did not happen.

But during Thursday’s testimony he denied participation in the crime and stated that he was used as a ‘lifeline’, since his informant was “suffering psychological pressure”.

Prisons

Businesswoman Maria Angélica Caixeta Gontijo was arrested in the city of Patos de Minas, in the southeast of Minas Gerais, on December 20th. At the time of her arrest, she was carrying a 9mm pistol, the same caliber as the one used in the lawyer’s murder. When questioned, the person under investigation denied the accusations. On December 19, judge João Bosco Soares da Silva, from the Police Inquiry Unit (Nipo), concluded that there is no concrete evidence to justify maintaining the businesswoman’s arrest for another 30 days and she left prison.

Army colonel, Etevaldo Luiz Caçadini de Vargas, was arrested on January 15, 2024, in Belo Horizonte (MG), identified as financing the execution. In a first statement he remained silent. The colonel was transferred to Cuiabá on Wednesday (17) and, if necessary, will give a new statement.

Antonio, the executor, was arrested in the city of Santa Luzia, metropolitan region of Belo Horizonte (MG). The arrest warrant was carried out by the Homicide Police Station in the capital of Minas Gerais in support of the Civil Police of Mato Grosso, which is investigating the crime that occurred against the lawyer.

The murder

Roberto Zampieri was shot dead on December 5th as he left his office. The killer lay in wait for the victim to leave and attacked him in his car, a Fiat Toro, with at least 10 shots.

Businesswoman Maria Angélica Caixeta Gontijo, who ordered the execution, had plans to flee Brazil as quickly as possible when she was arrested in Minas Gerais.

The executor and the intermediary, who hired the killer at the behest of the businesswoman, met only once, in a hotel in Cuiabá, where they were both staying. They also lived in the state of Minas Gerais and came to Cuiabá to commit the murder.
