Murder in Lagoa

A 30-year-old man died last week in Pateiro, Lagoa, after being attacked by one of his employees. Police believe the murderer was a 60-year-old man who was working in the victim’s furniture store in Lagoa. The victim has been identified as Ricardo Pimenta. The alleged attacker used a sharp chisel to attack his boss following a row. Local sources say that the employee then left the shop and returned home in his car following the assault, which took place at 4pm, leaving Pimenta in a serious condition. The victim was transported to Barlavento Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival. Pimenta was a well-known figure in the area, specialising in the restoration and sale of antiques.
