(31), allegedly killed her children and then stored their bodies in her apartment for two weeks. Officials reportedly found the children’s bodies in their beds, covered by blankets. The horror: the nine-year-old was probably killed four days after his brother. Investigators believe the girl slept next to her little brother’s body until she died.
Brazil: mother killed her son (3) and daughter (9)
Three-year-old Joaquim is said to have been murdered by his mother on August 13
According to the tabloid The Sun, the Brazilian mother stated when she was arrested that she was no longer financially and emotionally able to take care of her children. According to the report, she probably wanted to kill her children first and then herself.
Police spokeswoman Ana Hass said in an interview with local news: “When we entered the apartment, we found the children lying in their room. They looked like they were sleeping in bed, but they were already dead and in an advanced state of decomposition.”
The mother confessed that the officers had killed her two children, Joaquim and Alice: “She said she suffocated the boy with a pillow. The girl, on the other hand, suffocated her with a scarf,” says the police spokeswoman. This has not yet been confirmed by expert reports, reads that.
Single mother was tired and exhausted
Nine-year-old Alice probably slept next to her little brother for four days before her mother also killed her.
The children were both from different fathers, continued Ana Hass. Eliara P. probably raised Alice and Joaquim alone. “She claimed she was exhausted and felt alone. She also allegedly could no longer afford to raise her children.”
According to media reports, the police spokeswoman announced that this was the reason why the mother killed her nine-year-old daughter and three-year-old son. “Eliara P. said she actually intended to kill herself, but since the children had no one to trust, she ended up killing them first.”
The police are now collecting all the evidence and checking it against the 31-year-old’s confession. Because according to current knowledge, one fact does not agree with their claims.
Sister had to sleep next to the dead brother for four days until her mother also killed her
The mother, Eliara P., must now be held responsible for the murders of her children in court.
The alleged killer claimed to have killed the children one after the other. However, the autopsy showed that the three-year-old must have been killed on 13 August 2022 and the nine-year-old only on 17 August. This would mean that the girl had also lived under the same roof with her brother’s corpse for four whole days. Experts suspect that she even slept next to the remains – until Eliara P. eventually killed her too. Officials did not discover the dead children until two weeks later.
According to the police, Eliara P. must have continued to live a normal life after the alleged murders. She went to work and kept her apartment clean. The 31-year-old has now been charged with murder and disturbing the peace of the dead and will soon have to answer in court for his terrible crimes. (mca)
