A young crypto trader who flaunted his wealth on Instagram has been shot dead at the wheel of his red Porsche Boxster.
Gunmen unleashed a hail of bullets on 19-year-old Wesley Pessano Santarem as he drove through the Brazilian city of Sao Pedro da Aldeia.
Chilling video footage filmed in the aftermath of the broad daylight shooting on August 4 shows Wesley motionless in the driver’s seat of his car with his white T-shirt soaked in blood.
There is a visible bullet wound in his neck.
The shocking killing comes as gangs are increasingly targeting so-called “Insta-bragging” Bitcoin traders and influencers after they have flaunted their wealth on social media.
Despite being just 19-years-old, Wesley had apparently made a fortune as a cryptocurrency trader and investor for at least three years.
On Instagram he flaunted his wealth and expensive lifestyle to his 133,000 followers plus a YouTube channel with 15,600 subscribers where he gave trading tips.
His last Insta post was a photo of him sitting on the red Porsche — in which he was shot — as he flicks through wads of cash.
