5. Renné Senna
Renné Senna was a Brazilian man who wasn’t having the best life. Diabetes had affected his legs and they eventually needed to be amputated, so he had to quit working as a butcher and was forced to hawk items on the side of the road to make any money.
His wife was unhappy by this new, poor life, and left him. She took his kids from him as well.
Way to kick a man while he’s down, right?
In 2005, his luck seemed to be changing when he won over $16 million in the lottery. He began dating a woman 25 years his junior, Adriana Almeida . They had already known each other for a while, but her interest was piqued with his new found wealth.
She married him and that’s where the trouble began. She was put in charge of the estate and soon convinced him to take his 11 siblings out of his will. Of course the new will left half of everything to her.
Because she was on all of his bank accounts, she was able to take from the joint one and add money to hers to the tune of $580,000 and used it to buy a penthouse. He confronted her because he suspected her to be cheating. As you probably guessed, he was correct in his assumption.
Renné told her she would be taken out of his will. A few days had passed when he was headed to his favorite spot for a cold one, and two men showed up on motorcycles and demanded money. They ended up shooting him several times and drove away.
It was determined that Almeida was responsible for his murder and she was given 20 years in prison.
