Crime Show Host Accused of Ordering Killings to Boost Ratings 8

Posted by samzenpus
from the perpetual-motion-television dept.
Police say there is a good reason Canal Livre, a Brazilian crime show, always seems to be first on the scene when someone is murdered: the host ordered the killings. State legislator and host of the show Wallace Souza is under investigation for ordering at least five murders highlighted on the program. "The order to execute always came from the legislator and his son, who then alerted the TV crews to get to the scene before the police. [The killings] appear to have been committed to get rid of his rivals and increase the audience of the TV show," state police intelligence chief Thomaz Vasconcelos said.
