Gold miners who bragged about killing ten members of an uncontacted Amazonian tribe and chopped up their bodies are investigated by police in Brazil
Government agency believes miners killed tribesmen along the Amazon river
Agency workers say men bragged about cutting up their bodies in a nearby bar
If true, the massacre has likely wiped out a significant proportion of the tribe
Back in 2011 a whole tribe disappeared after being attacked by drug smugglers

A group of Brazilian gold miners who claimed to have slaughtered members of an indigenous tribe in the Amazon are being investigated by police.
The men had been overheard bragging about murdering ten members of a previously uncontacted Amazonian tribe in a bar near the Colombian border.
Brazilian police are now investigating their horrific claims after someone recorded their bar talk, as it is alleged the victims included women and children.
