A woman who became a minor celebrity for stealing selfies with the world’s best players during the World Cup has died, with reports in Brazil claiming that Amanda Bueno, also known as ‘the girlfriend of football’ was murdered over the weekend.
Bueno, whose real name was Cicera Alves de Sena, was only 29-years-old, and was killed by a man named Milton Vieira, though it is not yet known what their connection was to one another.
In the blurry TV footage of the incident, Vieira can be seen hurling Bueno to the ground before apparently beating or stabbing her. The footage is blurred out for viewer discretion making it difficult to see what exactly happened.
The video then shows a group of men apparently alerted to the incident and trying to apprehend him, though they are then joined by a third man before speeding off in a car.
Bueno became popular last summer for managing to sweet talk her way into areas where players were at the World Cup to take selfies with them.
