2 Brazilian Brothers Confess: We Bured Our Father Alive Because He Beat Us For Being Gay

How’s this for an honor killing: Two gay brothers in Brazil are accused of burying their father alive back in December because he “was a violent man who drank too much and didn’t accept their homosexuality,” the AP reports. The brothers, ages 18, and 21, confessed to plotting their father’s murder, where they drugged him and threw his unconscious body into a hole. Police suspect more than disapproval of the boys’ sexuality was at issue, but control over the ceremonial grounds administrated by the father, who was “head of a local Afro-Brazilian religious congregation.”
