The esports community in Brazil is in mourning after Ingrid Oliveira Bueno da Silva, a 19-year-old Call of Duty: Mobile gamer, was killed on February 22. Portal R7 first reported the news, which Daily Esports has since confirmed.

Bueno da Silva, who called himself Sol in the game, was found dead in a house in Pirituba, a neighborhood in the north of São Paulo. Guilherme Alves Costa, known by name in the Flashlight game, was arrested in connection with the murder. A video of police handcuffing him includes some comments about the crime.

“Yes, I know. My conscience is very capable,” Costa said in Portuguese (translated into English by Victor Hugo Porto of Mais Esports) when asked if he remembers what happened. The person who recorded the video then asked Costa why he committed the crime. “Because I wanted to,” he replied.

Reports say Costa met Bueno da Silva online a month ago and invited her to his home in Pirituba, where he allegedly killed the Call of Duty: Mobile partner. He then shared a video of the incident with a group of WhatsApp messages.

Dozens of players, coaches, fans and others shared their messages of mourning and support on social media after the death of Beuno da Silva. Bueno da Silva competed in Call of Duty: Mobile for FBI E-sports, a small organization based in Brazil. The group shared a video of the team participating in a ceasefire within a Call of Duty: Mobile server in dedication to Beuno da Silva. Several of his teammates also shared their pain online.

“I will never forget every time you praise me saying that I play very well, that I was perfect among other things,” said Bueno da Silva’s teammate, who calls himself docinho. “I know this pain will never go away, but I know that even without you, you will continue to encourage me. I just wanted to get into the call with you and tell you that I loved you and that you were the person I loved the most in my life. I was always sad or stressed about something, you were there to cheer up my day. I love you.”

Daily Esports reached out to numerous parties for more information on the incident, but they did not respond to a request for comment at the time of publication. This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
