Brazilian Soccer Referee kills player, then gets beheaded!!

I'm surprised I didn't hear of this until today. This is some Game of Thrones style revenge.

Referee (Octavio) issues a red card to player (Josenir). Player was furious and berate. Referee pulled out a knife and stabbed the player to death. Fans stormed the field and tied up the referee, cut off his legs, beheaded him, and then put his head on a stake in the middle of the field...

Story seems too crazy to be true.

Here is a picture of the referee

Brazilian soccer referee beheaded by angry fans who put his head on a stake after he stabbed player
The match took place June 30 in Maranhao, Brazil
Referee Octavio da Silva Catanhede Jordan, 20, fatally stabbed a player Josenir dos Santos Abreu, 30, started a fight after a disagreement
Fans stormed the field to quarter, behead and place Silva's head on a stake
Police have arrested one man so far in relation to the crime, and are looking for at least two others

Brazilian police have detained one man and were seeking two others in the killing of a referee who was gruesomely quartered and beheaded after fatally stabbing a player on the field during a match.
Officer Valter Costa, who was heading the investigation into the June 30 slayings, said police have detained Luis Moraes Souza, 27, who is suspected of pummeling the referee over the head and smashing a bottle of cachaca sugarcane rum onto his face.
Souza's brother, Francisco, is among the two still being sought, Costa said.

The match took place June 30 at Pius XII stadium in Maranhao, northeastern Brazil.
The slayings began after the 20-year-old referee, Otavio Jordao da Silva, expelled player Josemir Santos Abreu, 31, from an amateur match in the small town of Centro do Meio, in the northern state of Maranhao.
Angered by the expulsion, Abreu threw Silva to the ground. As he rose, Silva pulled a knife and stabbed Abreu in the chest, Costa said, and the player died on the way to the hospital.
Players and spectators then rushed Silva, tying him up by his arms and legs while Souza hit him over the head with a spike and then broke the bottle on his face. One of the suspects being sought, a man nicknamed 'Pirolo,' then took the knife that had been used to stab Abreu and stabbed the referee in the neck, said Costa.
It was not immediately clear why Silva had been carrying the knife in the first place.
Souza's brother Francisco then used a sickle to cut off Silva's arms, legs and head, which he placed on a spike in the middle of the field, Costa said. He added that Francisco may have been on drugs at the time.
The mob showed no mercy as they quartered and decapitated the referee and then placed his head on a stake.

Costa said violence was unusual in Centro de Meio, a remote rural community with little crime. He said those involved in the slayings were all from neighboring towns.
While violent clashes between rival fans is common in Brazil, the brutality of the killings in Centro de Meio sent shockwaves through Brazil, which last month played host to the Confederations Cup and is gearing up to host next year's World Cup soccer tournament.
Paulo Storani, a professor and security expert who spent three decades in Rio's police forces, called the slayings 'an isolated incident' and said they don't reflect on Brazil's ability to ensure security at during the World Cup.
'It's something that's completely out of the ordinary which took place in an isolated area of the poorest state in the country, an area where violence is very widespread,' said Storani. 'While it's true we are used to soccer violence in Brazil, this is completely off the charts of what we usually see.'
A video shows the damage the mob did to Catanhede Jordan, but it is exceptionally graphic.
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.'
