José Vicente Matias (born September 24, 1966 in Firminópolis, Goiás), also known as "Corumbá", is a Brazilian serial killer and former artisan who raped, murdered and then dismembered 6 women between 1999 and 2005. In addition to killing, Matias also practised cannibalism with the remains of his victims, ingesting blood and brain pieces from them.

In his testimonies, 'Corumbá' gave contradictory statements on several occasions. He sometimes mentioned suffering "influences" from the Devil, who whispered in his ear that his mission was to kill seven women, while on other occasions, he cited xenophobia and jokes aimed at his sexual impotence. Before this, he had been arrested by the police for rape and violent assault. He was sentenced to 23 years imprisonment on June 2, 2008.
