Clauvino da Silva, a Brazilian gang leader and drug dealer who went viral for a failed attempt at escaping prison by dressing as his teen daughter, has been found dead in his cell three days after he was caught.
Silva had reportedly hanged himself.

During the escape attempt The Associated Press reported that da Silva was reportedly “acting nervously” while dressed as his daughter, who was meant to take his place inside the prison.
Da Silva’s plan failed, and now police are looking into his daughter as an accomplice.
But honestly, the internet was most perturbed by the disguise.

How did he get mask and from who and who help him with this

Globo, a Brazilian publication, reported that Da Silva previously escaped Rio De Janeiro’s Gericinó prison through a sewer line, which presumably involved less mask work.

This is actually the most terrifying thing I have ever seen.

Da Silva was part of the leadership of the Red Command, a scary and powerful criminal group in Brazil who plays a huge role in the drug trade in Rio De Janeiro.
LMAO, hahahahaha. Shouldn't laugh, but I did.

Crafty… I don’t know why he needed the bra, though…

42-year-old Da Silva, aka Baixinho, or “Shorty,” was serving a 73-year sentence for drug trafficking and was facing disciplinary action for his escape attempt.
And he would’ve gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids and their dog.
