HALLOWEEN is the perfect time for bizarre, scary stories. And what happened in Brazil recently certainly qualifies.
On Tuesday, the wife of former professional soccer player Joao Rodrigo Silva Santos found her husband's severed head in a bag on the front steps of their Rio de Janeiro home.
According to reports, his eyes and tongue had been cut out.
The 35-year-old Santos played for professional teams in Brazil, Switzerland and Honduras.
No arrests have been made but police believe Santos was kidnapped outside his health food store and murdered by a drug gang that may have wanted to send a message to his wife.
