A 21-year-old man and his parents were killed after the man agreed to be murdered along with his family if he lost a murder-mystery role-playing game, local media reported Saturday.

Authorities said the man and two others were playing characters who might be murdered depending on the outcome of the game. After Thiago Andrade Guedes lost, he allegedly allowed the other men to carry out the killings, just as happened in the game.

Guedes and his parents were killed on April 26 after being drugged and tied to a bed, police said. Their bodies were found nine days later at the home in the town of Guarapari, 440 miles northeast of Sao Paulo.

Mayderson de Vargas Mendes and Ronald Ribeiro Rodrigues confessed and were charged with murder, police said.
