The body of a 25-year-old teacher, Professor Lindolfo Kosmaski, who was active in his local LGBTQI community was found on April 30th, shot and burnt alive in his car in São João do Triunfo in the southern region of Brazil, in what locals suspect was a hate crime. The local police have arrested three suspects, aged 20, 33, and 39 years old. The police have confirmed that accused were known to the victim, who was allegedly shot twice while tied down with ropes and left inside his burning vehicle. An active participant in the Landless LGBT Collective and the Agroecology Days, Kosmaski was also a member of the Marxist group the Brazilian Landless Rural Workers’ Movement. The group demanded in a statement that “the appropriate entities move quickly to investigate and find those responsible for this heinous crime.” “He was a person known for affection and care; with a frank smile and an open heart, with a cheerful look, that captivate hugs and love. One of those beings who roam the world with a pounding heart, open to the challenge of learning, teaching and sharing and who wanted to make a difference in the world.”
