Twin Sisters Shot Dead In Harsh Execution Streamed Live On Instagram

Tiziana Piatos | Jul 20 2021, 10:01AM EDT

Officials arrested a teen suspect in northeast Brazil for allegedly shooting twin sisters to death and live streaming the gang-related executions on Instagram.

Amália Alves and Amanda Alves, both 18, were found dead on the side of a road near a housing complex in Pacajus, Ceará, last Wednesday morning, hours after they were killed.

As they knelt next to each other on the filthy road, video footage captured the sisters' harrowing final moments. The identical teenage mothers were seen kneeling next to each other on the dirt roadway on video footage.

Mateus Abreu, 17, allegedly compelled the twins to wear their hair in a bun before shooting their heads.

According to the publication Jornal de Brasil, the twin girls were killed because they were aware of instances involving local drug dealers. Authorities have not identified a motive for the executions.


The Ceará Civil Police has been able to arrest only one suspect, 17-year-old Mateus Abreu (pictured), for the double murder of 18-year-old identical twin sisters Amanda Alves and Amália Alves.

1. Drug prohibition sure does great things, huh?

There IS a better way.

The profit-motive and easy cash is what drives these cartels and madmen to inhuman violence and vicious acts. If the 'war on drugs' achieved anything it did what all wars do - it claimed innocent victims disproportionate to its actual aims.

Treat drug addiction as the disease that it is. Stop moralizing to others about using substances that they choose. We are not going to stop allowing alcohol and tobacco use - but they at least provide the templates for what can and should be done in place of fruitless interdiction policies and continued carnage due to profit seeking gangs and cartels.

Tobacco use has plummeted once social stigmas were applied to it and the long-term health risks were made plain. Alcohol remains a constant in human ingestion but at least the usage is largely contained to socially accepted areas and times (except for addicts and abusers, but that is ALWAYS going to be the case).

Legalization, control of distribution and pricing, treatment to prevent abuse and an end to the money spigot that fuels stories like this one. We might as well try it, because what we are and have been doing for decades is only killing innocents and enriching tyrants and creating monsters.

2. I have been saying the same thing FOR YEARS.

LEGALIZE DRUGS. Let the users line up for their daily fix with clean needles. The cartels will be out of business in no time.
