One of Brazil‘s most wanted cartel members, a 20-year-old girl, known as Hello Kitty on social media, was killed in a shootout with police on Friday. She was fatally wounded along with her father, according to a statement from the Brazilian Military Police.
Rayane Nazareth Cardozo da Silveira, 20, was wanted in connection with multiple murders and robberies in the capital city of Rio de Janeiro. She was reportedly second-in-command of the Salgueiro narco, which her father, Alessandro Luiz Viera Moura, led.
Police had been looking for the two for over two years, but they had managed to evade arrest until last week when their gang took a family hostage. Gunfire erupted between the authorities and the cartel, and in the end, Silveria, her father, and two others were killed.
She often posed online in tiny outfits and holding massive weapons, gaining her the nickname Hello Kitty.
