“The following day I continued the search until a woman who was kidnapped alongside my brother called me and said they killed him before even collecting the ransom, but that she didn’t know where they dumped his body.

“I went back to the nearby town and hired hunters to get back into the forest and search for the corpse. After trekking for many kilometers, we found his decomposing corpse.” He said.
