Funeral on Saturday for murdered Albufeira bouncer

Hundreds of friends and relatives are expected this Saturday at the funeral in Albufeira of murdered night spot bouncer António Guimarães.
And as the 40-year-old’s killer lies under police guard in hospital, it has emerged that, tragically, “Guimas” had been about to become a father.
The horrific incident that robbed him of his life blew up in the early hours of Wednesday morning, just outside the town’s Second Bar, in the notorious Oura district.
A ‘settling of scores’ led to violent scuffles and the fatal stabbing of Guimas, as well as injuries to his assailants and another colleague.
Described as a “peacemaker” and a “good friend” by those who knew him, Guimas will be buried at Albufeira’s Cemitério Novo at 5pm on Saturday.
His death marked a new low in the holiday reputation of Albufeira’s drinking district.
