De Oliveira, editor of the monthly publication Gazeta de Barroso in Minas Gerais, was shot and killed by a local merchant, José Carlos de Souza. The murder apparently stemmed from a dispute about articles the journalist had written concerning de Souza's wife. De Oliveira's mother was also shot and wounded in the attack. De Souza maintained that he killed de Oliveira in self-defense.
