Bodybuilder’s Death Comes Following Other Tragedies

The death of Andre Cavalcanti came after another tragedy that occurred in Porto Seguro, Brazil in July.

Brazilian bodybuilder Salomao de Moura Ribeiro Magnin was found dead and wrapped in a sheet next to his motorbike in a car park on Saturday morning. According to NeedToKnow, the 22-year-old bodybuilder was shot five times before being found in the beach cabana park.

Reports claim that locals heard Magnin begging for his life to two men on Friday night. The incident occurred in Porto Seguro, which is just northeast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. CNN Brazil reported that police found blood stains and two ammunition cases on the ground at the scene.

Magnin, like Cavalcanti, was an up-and-coming, local bodybuilder that was at the beginning of their careers.
