Brazilian news outlet R7 reported that Guilherme Alves made the shocking admission about a half-hour after he assassinated Ingrid Oliveira at his home and uploaded a video of the gruesome act on social media on Monday.

When asked by a law enforcement agent why he killed Oliveira, Alves said ‘because I wanted to.’
Another person in the background then shamed Alves by telling him, ‘you are laughing at a situation, you killed a young girl, Guilherme.’
Alves then replied, ‘my sanity is completely apt. I wanted to do that.’

In the video, Alves spoke about a 52-page book he had penned in which he revealed that he never met his biological father. He also commented about a ‘mission’ he had carved out to kill an unknown amount of people.
‘If you chose to be a person without feeling of others, just kill several people and prevent remorse from reaching you,’ he wrote.
He also wrote about his desire to set people on fire without naming anybody in particular.
‘I’m sad to hear that I don’t have the capacity to burn more than 5 billion idiots on this planet.’
Ingrid Oliveira played under the online video game username ‘Sol’
The unemployed Alves had not met Oliveira in person before he welcomed her over to play video games. Their interactions were kept via cellphone and online game chatter.
Oliveira played under the online username ‘Sol’ and was part of an E-Sports team called FBI E-Sports. Alves also belonged to an online gaming team known as Gamers Elite and played under the nickname, ‘Flashlight.’
‘She joined our girls squad and made a lot of friends with the boys from the Black Stars line, where she stayed until the end. She was an excellent player, she had a space in our hearts,’ FBI E-Sports said in a statement.
‘She was an extraordinary person, always motivating and Her connection with all the members was super good, super respectful, friendly and very polite. We dedicate her our utmost respect, and her family, our feelings and our condolences.’
