Pedro Rodrigues Filho

Pedrinho Matador, The Brazillian Killer

"Little Peter the Killer"

Pedro Rodrigues Filho was he born at a farm in Santa Rita do Sapucaí, south of Minas Gerais. Pedro said his first urge to kill happened at the age of 13. During a fight with an older cousin, he pushed the boy into a sugar cane press. The boy almost died. At the age of 14, he murdered the vice-Mayor of Alfenas, Minas Gerais, because he fired his father, a school guard, at the time accused of stealing the school kitchen’s food. Then he murdered another guard, supposedly the real thief. He then fled and took refuge. He killed a drug dealer. He also lived with a woman that he had met. The woman was later killed by some gang members. Filho then began to kill numbers of gang members to try and find the person that had killed the woman that he had lived with. By the time he was 18, he left a body count of more than 10. He then executed his own father at a local prison, after his father butchered his mother with a machete. To get revenge, Pedro killed his father, cut out his heart and ate a piece of it.
