Brazilian goalkeeper Bruno looked like he was on track to be a superstar. A series of excellent performances for Flamengo saw him being linked with European giants Barcelona and had fans calling for him to be selected for national team duty. That’s all hunky-dory, but things go downhill very quickly.
In 2014, his former mistress Eliza Samaudo went missing. She had sued him for refusing to acknowledge their illegitimate child. Meanwhile, he was negotiating a transfer with Italian giants AC Milan. She was murdered and her body was cut up. It was partially fed to dogs and also buried under concrete by Bruno’s teenage cousin. He was sentenced to 22 years in prison but insanely only served six.
