Rio Police Leave Victim To Die, Free Killers

CCTV, Text from source : A 42-year-old was beaten up and shot by two robbers last Sunday in downtown Rio de Janeiro. CCTV footage which emerged on Tuesday shows that the charity worker was still alive when two police officers passed by. But instead of stopping to help, they let go his killers and drove away.

Evandro Joao da Silva died from a bullet wound to the abdomen on 18 October. When the CCTV footage of his murder emerged a few days later, the police were forced to admit that they thought he was a beggar. So far, only one of the two attackers has been arrested.

According to the autopsy, Evandro died around ten minutes after he was shot. However, a colleague of the victim who rushed to the scene says that he was still breathing some 50 minutes after the attack.
