Player stabbed, referee dismembered over soccer quarrel in Brazil
“The altercation grew ugly. Silva pulled a knife, and plunged it into Abreu’s chest, Maranhao state police said in a statement.
While the player was rushed to a hospital, members of his family nabbed the referee and tied him up with the help of fans, CNN affiliate Band News reported. And they tortured him.
The player didn’t make it to the hospital alive, police said. When the news reached his family back at the soccer field, the mob took retribution on Silva.”
