A soccer referee in Brazil was gruesomely quartered and beheaded after he fatally stabbed a player on the field during a match.

The match took place June 30 at Pius XII stadium in Maranhao, northeastern Brazil.

According to Correio24horas, 30-year-old player Josenir dos Santos Abreu approached the 20-year-old referee, Octavio da Silva Catanhede Jordan, to argue a call.The two couldn’t come to terms so Catanhede Jordan told the player to leave the field.

Santos Abreu refused and the argument turned heated when the referee allegedly pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed Santos Abreu multiple times.

The player died en route to the hospital. Fans outraged by the stabbing – believed to be the player’s friends and family – stormed the pitch and cornered Catanhede Jordan.

The mob showed no mercy as they quartered and decapitated the referee and then placed his head on a stake.

So far police in Santa Ines, Maranhao have arrested one man, 27-year-old Luis Moraes Souza, in relation to the gruesome crime – but may be looking for two other men named ‘Chiquinho’ and ‘Pirolo’ according to a few other Brazilian blogs.

Valter Costa, police chief of Santa Ines, released a statement about the investigation.

‘Reports of witnesses have indicated some people that were in place at the time of the fact,’ he said. ‘We will identify and hold accountable all those involved. A crime will never justify another. Actions like this do not collaborate with the legality of a state law.’

 Arrested: Police in Maranhao have already brought into custody Luis Moraes Souza in relation to the beheading, but are on the lookout for two other men

    • look, in this country they take sports VERY seriously, so yes i understand why a referee would come armed to defend himself. what i didn’t find right was that the crowds emotions got so out of hand tat they behead a man. So no what you said about him deserving to be beheaded, is to me ignorant.
