Brazilian law enforcement officials identified Ruben Dario da Silva Villar, an alleged illegal fishing trafficker and gang leader, as the mastermind behind the murders of Indigenous expert Bruno Pereira and British journalist Dom Phillips last summer. Police officials say Pereira was working with local Indigenous communities to monitor and collect evidence of illegal fishing activity and thus threatened Villar’s business.
