CoD Mobile player jailed for 14 years for murder of fellow player
An 18-year-old former Call of Duty: Mobile pro player has been sentenced to 14 years in prison, convicted of killing a fellow player and filming their corpse.
Guilherme Alves Costa, who played under the name Flash Asmodeus, stabbed teenager Ingrid Oliveira Bueno da Silva to death a month after meeting her. Ingrid played for CoD Mobile esports team FBI (Fantastic Brazil Impact), under her in-game name ‘SOL’.
He lured the 19-year-old into his home in Sao Paolo, Brazil, before attacking her in the bedroom with a weapon.
He told police his “sanity is completely fit” and he “wanted to do it” while being handcuffed.

CoD Mobile player sentenced to 14 years for murder
On August 15, a court jury in Sao Paolo found him guilty of aggravated murder by a majority verdict, with judge Michelle Porto de Medeiros Cunha Carreiro sentencing him to 14 years imprisonment.
Footage shot by the murderer showed the victim on the floor, laying in a pool of blood with a sword in their stomach.
In the video footage, Costa was heard saying: “Look, how wonderful.”
It was recommended that Guilherme take up psychiatric counseling after a private psychiatrist diagnosed him with persistent delusional disorder and antisocial personality disorder.
As reported by The Mirror, Ingrid’s gaming team also posted a statement, celebrating her life.
They said: “She was an excellent player, she had a space in our hearts. She was an extraordinary person, always motivating us and believing. We owe her and her family our utmost respect and our condolences.”
