Jose Becker Found Dead
Dad-of-two Mr. Becker was found dead at midnight on Wednesday by a lake on the family’s ranch near the town of Lavras do Sul in southern Brazil.
An autopsy confirmed he had drowned and ruled out foul play, although a police investigation into the circumstances surrounding the tragedy is continuing.
He is thought to have got into difficulties after going for a swim in the lake although he often practiced underwater fishing and diving at the family’s country holiday property just over 200 miles away from their main home in Novo Hamburgo.
The funeral took place on Friday afternoon at a Catholic cemetery in a neighborhood of Novo Hamburgo called Canudos where Mr. Becker lived.
A Sport Club International flag is said to have been laid over the coffin. Alisson and his brother both started their careers at the Serie A club based in Porto Alegre.
Muriel has now changed the profile photo on his Instagram to one of his dad’s.
Local police chief Andre de Mattos confirmed on Friday several people, thought to include friends and employees of the family property who started a search when his family raised the alarm around 5 pm on Wednesday, had been questioned.
But he declined to say whether real estate broker Mr. Becker was on his own when the tragedy occurred.
He told local media authorities wanted to “analyze in greater depth” the circumstances leading to Mr. Becker’s death.
Tests on tissue samples are now expected to take place to help police ascertain why he might have got into difficulties in the water.
Alisson said in a post in English and Portuguese on his official Twitter account after learning of his father’s death: “I would like to thank everyone for the messages and tributes to my beloved father.
“Our family feels loved by everyone. May God bless each one’s life.”
His club wrote on its website: “ Liverpool FC is deeply saddened by the tragic death of Alisson Becker’s father, Jose, in Brazil on Wednesday.
“The thoughts of everybody at the club are with Alisson and the Becker family at this incredibly sad and difficult time.
