Woman Accused Of Giving Fake Butt Implants Is Murdered In Suspected Revenge Attack

A Brazilian woman accused of giving illegal buttock augmentation procedures has been murdered in Rio de Janeiro. Marcilene Soares Gama, 49, was facing legal action over allegations that she posed as a doctor at the time of her murder on Saturday, according to the BBC.

A man was recorded on surveillance video entering Gama’s apartment before he tied her up, shot her in the face and dumped her body on a roadside. Police believe her murder was an act of revenge, according to TIME. At least 10 women have accused Gama of malpractice and impersonating a doctor.

“She never said she was a surgeon. People knew the risks, but they went ahead anyway,” Gama’s brother-in-law, Daniel Mofacto told O Dia. “But I do believe that she was murdered by a vengeful client.”

Gama had two children and was preparing to soon become a grandmother.

Buttock enhancements are one of the most popular plastic surgeries

Serial Killer Cosmo DiNardo Claims To Have Murdered At Least Two Others

The suspect who has confessed to murdering four young men and burying their bodies on his parents farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania is now claiming he has killed before.

According to CBS Philadelphia, 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo has confessed that he was involved in at least two other killings in Philadelphia over the last five years.

“Given what he was already been accused of it’s certainly a possibility we would be remissed if we didn’t investigate further,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross told NBC Philadelphia.

Last week, DiNardo  confessed to murdering Jimi Taro Patrick, 19; Dean Finocchiaro, 19; Mark Sturgis, 22, and Tom Meo, 21. The four young men were shot and buried on DiNardo’s family farm. Families of the four have announced funeral plans this week.

Parole denied for former Pelham cop who murdered wife’s ex-husband and his new wife in Hoover

Former police officer and convicted killer Jeff Kelley McCord had his first chance at freedom in 14 years Wednesday, but it was denied by the Alabama Board of Pardons and Parole.

McCord, now 47, pleaded guilty in 2003 to the Hoover murders of Alan and Terra Bates in one of the Birmingham-area’s most high-profile killings in recent decades. McCord’s then-wife, Jessica Bates McCord, was also convicted in the ambush shootings deaths of her ex-husband and his new wife.

The case was the subject of a true-crime novel called “Death Trap” and also is featured multiple times a year on the Oxygen network’s “Snapped” series. The couple divorced not long after being sent to prison, and she has since returned to using the last name of the husband she murdered.

Jeff McCord, then 33, was sentenced to two life terms but was granted parole eligibility in exchange for detailing for prosecutors how he and

John McCain Says North Korea Murdered Former Detainee

Tensions between the United States and North Korea continue to mount as debate about the death of former North Korean detainee Otto Warmbier intensifies. Now, Senator John McCain has gone on the record to call the suspicious death a murder, according to CNN.

Warmbier had been in the DPRK as a tourist when he attempted to steal a political poster. Police arrested him and detained him for 17 months. When he was finally released back to the U.S., he had severe brain damage and died shortly thereafter.

His family believes he was tortured; the North Korean government maintains his condition was brought about after contracting botulism.  However, NBC News reports that doctors who initially examined Warmbier said they found no evidence of botulism, but did find extensive brain damage that could have been caused by oxygen deprivation, which can be caused when the heart is stopped. 

“Let
