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.
Her death was first reported by ESPN on February 22, 2021. Costa handed himself over to the police after sharing the video with people in his gaming circle.
He told police his “sanity is completely fit” and he “wanted to do it” while being handcuffed.
