Man arrested over depraved killing of Brighton footballer Jorelyn Carabali’s brother | The Sun
A MAN has been nicked over the murder of Brighton women’s footballer Jorelyn Carabali’s brother.
The suspect has been remanded in custody pending an ongoing criminal probe by an investigating judge.
Luis Ocampo — also known as Pipe Pollo — was held in the Colombian city of Cali.
Jorelyn, 26, whose team won 1-0 at Manchester City in the Women’s Super League at the weekend, posted a Bible verse on her Instagram as news of the arrest broke.
It said: “Have faith and smile, because God loves you.”
Cali prosecution chief Sandra Eugenia Gonzalez Mina said yesterday: “The suspected killer of the brother of our Colombian international footballer Jorelyn Carabali has been detained and sent to prison pending a formal ongoing investigation.”

She added: “Thanks to the work of police and prosecutors the identity of the man who allegedly assassinated Jorelyn’s brother has been established.
“The victim was shot six times, four in the face.
“The evidence gathered so far points to the alleged aggressor having a row in the disco that night with the victim as well as a year ago and leaving the nightclub to get a firearm before returning and shooting him.”
Jorelyn lost another brother, Juan, 15, in 2017. He was shot while at a football match.
