The 20-year-old rapper MC Black was found dead on Wednesday after two days of missing on the beach in Leste-Oeste with injuries from a sharp object
After the tortured body of the Brazilian rapper MC Black was found in the sea, an investigation into murder was launched.
Rapper Francisco Ytalo Oliveira de Queiroz was spotted in a popular Fortaleza seaside resort on Wednesday after disappearing two days earlier.
The 20-year-old disappeared after telling relatives that he was visiting Iracema Beach to add new content to his social media accounts.
Family members claim he left home around 8 a.m. to withdraw cash from the bank and should be back a few hours later.
Unless he was returning home, his relatives followed Queiroz’s motorcycle trackers to the beach when horrified witnesses informed them of an attack.
They told family members that they saw two men with sticks forcing the singer to go to a car, news site G1 reported.
Tragically, his body was discovered by swimmers off Leste-Oeste beach Wednesday morning with injuries from a sharp object.
He is believed to have been targeted by criminals for straying on “rival territory” despite his family rejecting evidence that he was involved in any gang activity.

Earlier this year, another Brazilian rapper, MC Kevin, fell to his death in Rio de Janeiro after allegedly dating Bianca Domingues, 26, and boyfriend Victor Fontanelle for an alcoholic and sex-laden evening.
The 23-year-old singer, real name Kevin Nascimento Bueno, had only been married to his lawyer Deolane Bezerra for a few weeks.
Mr Bueno is said to have been hiding on the balcony after one of his buddies was told by the singer’s security guard that his wife, who was also staying at the hotel, was looking for him.
The victim’s father, Jones de Araujo, told G1, “He was at the party and I went there to call him home.
“He hugged me, told me he loved me and would stay with me until the last day of his life. Then the confusion started next to us, with his friends, and he went to part them.
“I couldn’t bear to see my son’s head bloody. When I was after the person who opened fire, he also pointed his gun at me, but others held him back.”
