The Rio de Janeiro police are investigating the murder of Ibsen Rocha Villaça, aged 39, who was recently appointed as President of Rio de Janeiro’s Equestrian Federation.

Villaça, a well known breeder and horse dealer, was approached by two assailants at a stop sign last Friday and shot in the chest, head and neck. The police suspect that the motive was theft, as a briefcase containing a considerable amount of cash was stolen from Ibsen Villaça´s car.
