Jealousy over Facebook chat prompts Brazil murder
Jun. 25, 2014
SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian police say a Facebook conversation made a man so jealous that he killed and dismembered a friend of his wife.
The Rio de Janeiro police department says in a statement emailed on Wednesday that Anderson Gomes Aleixo grew jealous when he found out that his wife and a childhood friend were chatting on Facebook.
The statement says Aleixo confessed that he forced his wife to invite her friend to their house on June 8, then killed Francisco de Assis Coelho Neves with a knife and dismembered the body in their bathroom.
When Aleixo left the house with the body parts, his wife called police.
Police say they are still looking for the body parts, which apparently were dumped in a stream.
