Brazilian gang members allegedly recorded themselves killing a 21-year-old woman, chopping up her body and stuffing the pieces into a suitcase — which was later found by workers in a drainage ditch when her arm got loose and floated to the surface, according to reports.
Gabriela Lima Santana is believed to have been butchered in a bathroom in a suspected retaliation against a rival gang, The US Sun reported, citing local media reports.
She was first reported missing March 13 but is believed to have disappeared much earlier, according to the news outlet.
Municipal workers in Capao da Canoa discovered her remains when they were operating an excavator to remove garbage in the area.
One of Santana arms reportedly fell out as a worker used the heavy machine to remove the luggage in front of terrified employees, the outlet reported. The limb landed in the water and floated to the surface.
