The superintendent of the Federal Police in Amazonas, Eduardo Fontes, said, in an interview with Rádio Gaúcha this Tuesday (21/6), that investigations into the deaths of Bruno Pereira and British journalist Dom Phillips indicate that the Brazilian indigenist reached fire five shots after being shot for the first time. Both disappeared on June 5 and, 11 days later, the bodies were found in the Vale do Javari region.
The information is contained in testimonies of the suspects of the crime collected by the PF. According to the superintendent, the weapon that Bruno would have used was lost in the river. After being shot for the second time, the indigenist would have lost control of the speedboat they were on, and Bruno’s pistol would have fallen into the water and was not found. He had a gun.
