Brazilian YouTube star, Carlos Medeiros is found dead in shallow grave at his childhood friend's home after vanishing on Christmas Day

 Brazilian influencer Carlos Medeiros has been found dead after he disappeared on Christmas day. 



The 26-year-old YouTuber was last seen by family at a fireworks show on December 25 before going to visit his friend's house for a late holiday dinner in the São Paulo city of Itapecerica da Serra.

His lifeless body was discovered on New Year's Eve in a shallow grave at the property. 

The man who owns the home, 28, and his wife, 24, turned themselves into police on Monday and were placed in pre-trial detention for one month, Brazilian news outlet G1 reported.



They reportedly told the Civil Police that Medeiros, who had close to two million subscribers on his YouTube channel, took cocaine and then had a heart attack.

The defendants claimed they buried Medeiros by the side of their home instead of calling for an ambulance because they were scared.



The couple had initially lied and said Medeiros left their home after dinner, before later confessing a different story. 



They had also made social media posts asking the public for help finding Medeiros.
