    Brazil - Joao Rodrigo, 35, footballer, abducted, decapitated, Rio, 28 Oct 2013

    Joo Rodrigo Silva Santos didn't come home Monday night.
    When the former professional footballer's wife opened the door on her way to work the next morning, she found his severed head on their front step.

    The head was inside a backpack, police said. Santos' eyes and tongue had been gouged out, according to Brazilian media reports.

    Now police in Rio de Janeiro are investigating the grisly killing, though they haven't said who they believe is behind it.

    Santos, 35, was a forward for a number of mostly second-tier Rio de Janeiro football teams before retiring and opening a health foods store.

    His death comes at a time when football fans worldwide are shifting their focus toward Brazil, which will host the World Cup in 2014.

    The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

    Investigators are working on the hypothesis that Mr Santos could have been murdered by a drugs gang because of Mrs Silva's work at a military police base in a local slum.

    The Police Pacification Unit in the Morro do Sao Carlos is one of dozens set up in Rio's favelas to retake control of the city's slums from violent drug traffickers.

    However, according to police chief Rafael Rangel, Mrs Silva worked as a social worker in the base and didn't patrol the streets or make arrests like other police officers.

    I can't imagine the horror she is feeling...the utter, complete horror.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.
