Trigger Warning: murder, female violence
A Call of Duty: Mobile esports player named Ingrid “Sol” Oliveira Bueno da Silva has been murdered by a male gamer named Guilherme Alves “Flashlight” Costa in São Paulo, Brazil, according to esports consultant Rod “Slasher” Breslau.
As Breslau reported on Twitter, the two players met through the internet. An investigation into the attack has found that the murder was pre-meditated “weeks beforehand,” with Flashlight supposedly recording and sharing it with friends. Messages from Flashlight indicated he planned additional attacks, but he has since been arrested and confessed, according to EPSN.
