Brazilian rapper MC Black has been found dead in the sea after disappearing for two days.
MC Black, whose real name is Francisco Ytalo Oliveira de Queiroz, was discovered at a popular beach resort in Fortaleza on Wednesday, Nov. 24.
The 20-year-old vanished two days prior after telling relatives he was visiting Iracema Beach to record some new content for his social media accounts.
Family members claim he had left home at around 8am on Monday, Nov. 22, to withdraw cash from the bank and was expected to be back a few hours later.
When he did not return home, his relatives followed Queiroz’s motorbike tracker to the beach when they were informed of an attack by horrified witnesses.
The witnesses told family members that they saw two men with sticks forcing the singer to walk to a car, news site G1 reports.
His body was discovered on Wednesday morning by swimmers off Leste-Oeste Beach with injuries caused by a sharp object.
It is believed that he was targeted by criminals for straying onto “rival territory” despite his family denying suggestions that he was involved in any gang activity.
A murder investigation has been opened after the tortured body of MC Black was found in the sea.
