Valério Luiz de Oliveira was gunned down in Goiânia, the capital of the west-central state of Goiás, on 5 July. Luiz had just left the station where he worked, Rádio Jornal 820 AM, and was about to start his car when one or two men on motorcycle stopped alongside and fired six shots at him. He died a few minutes later while being rushed to hospital in an ambulance. As nothing was taken from him, the motive was clearly not robbery and everything points to a contract killing.
