Here is another killed man, found in Praça Noronha Santos, in Rio de Janeiro. Authorities have not released any information yet, but a journalist friend in Brazil tells me the man was probably run over by a car.

These images have been removed from Google Street View already, but not before they were captured by Brazilian Google Street View users.

Sadly, people are reporting even more images like these. Google is taking them down as they learn about them. [EM]
