Gean Blendão Pereira Rodrigues was found with his hands and feet tied near Gameleira
Four years after Gean Blendão Pereira Rodrigues, 21, was found shot in the head, with his hands and feet tied, the case goes to trial in Campo Grande. On the 26th of May, the accused, Márcio Douglas Pereira, will be questioned for false imprisonment and murder for clumsy reasons, with an appeal that made it difficult for the victim to defend himself.
Gean was part of the list of five people “marked for death” by the PCC (First Red Command), for being part of the rival CV (Red Command) faction. List that was found in 2018 by officers from the Military Police Shock Battalion at the home of another of the five victims.
He was found on a side road near the Gameleira prison and was rescued and sent to Santa Casa de Campo Grande, but he could not resist his injuries.
According to the investigation records, the young man’s family believes that he was killed by mistake and that he was not part of the CV. They argue that the crime occurred due to an old photo taken where Gean was a symbol of the Red Command.
He learned about this list before he died and even went to look for Márcio Douglas, his childhood friend, who was part of the PCC, and who guaranteed that nothing would happen.
According to the complaint from the MPMS (Public Ministry of Mato Grosso do SUl), Márcio Douglas was already responding to another criminal case, which is why he responded to the case in prison.
Vigilante Ivanir Pereira, 44, mother of Gean, reported that the young man died without knowing he would be a father, as his girlfriend discovered she was pregnant a week later.
“This murderer took away my son’s right to be a father, today my grandson grows up without a father. This guy didn’t just take my son’s life, he was a part of me along with him, today I’m depressed”, she lamented.
Ivanir also said that nowadays he lives with the help of medicine and the family had to move to the state of Mato Grosso, where they are from, because they could no longer live in Campo Grande.
“My son was never part of a faction, he worked as a registered waiter. Now I have faith in God, so that justice will be done,” he added.
