A crazed madman walked into a Rio de Janeiro middle school in Brazil on yesterday and massacred 10 girls and two boys. As the crazed madman lined the students up against a wall he yelled “I’m going to kill you all”.
The killer has been identified as Wellington Menezes de Oliveira, 24, a former student at the school, who arrived with two guns at 8:30 a.m and told staff members he was there for a lecture before he opened fire. The meyhem and chaos had the students running for their lives.
The gunman also had a white bedsheet and a suicide note that read “virgins should use it to wrap his naked body.”
“I must be seen as an authentic and faithful follower of God and there must be prayers at my grave asking God’s pardon for what I did so that Jesus will grant me the sleep of death for eternal life,” the note said. He added that, “he wanted prayers said over his grave.”
“We believe he was a psychopath,” said Assistant Police Chief Roberto Sa.
Simone Gold, 41, a hairdresser in Astoria, Queens said, she moved to New York eight years ago because the violence in Brazil is a big problem.
“One of the reasons I came to the U.S. was lack of safety,” she said. “I lived two years in Rio de Janeiro and I would never know if my kids would come home alive from school.”
