On Monday, Call of Duty Mobile professional Ingrid Oliveira Bueno da Silva, known as “Sol,” was reportedly murdered by a fellow Esports player Guilherme Alves Costa in São Paulo, Brazil. The details of the murder are extremely shocking as the gaming world is reeling from the incident.

The 19-year-old Oliveira was in contact with Costa, who went by the online alias "Flashlight." The two met virtually through their mutual love for Call of Duty. After a month of getting to know each other, Costa went to Oliveira's residence.

Things took a twisted turn as Costa stabbed Oliveira multiple times in her home. He recorded the event and even shared it on a WhatsApp group of fellow players.

Oliveira was signed to the Brazilian Esports organization FBI (Fantastic Brazil Impact) and played for their Call of Duty Mobile team.
