Josieli Lopes Age
Brazilian Josieli Lopes, 36, passed out with a “mysterious illness” caused by poisoned meat, it is said – and instead of taking him to the hospital with the baby who drank his milk, the police said her ex-husband took them to a remote jungle location where he buried them when he was sure they were dead.
The 34-year-old – who has not been identified – was arrested after confessing to the murders a week after the victims were reported missing.
Bodies of the mother and son were found buried in the wooded forest
The bodies of the mother and son were found buried in the wooded forest of Rio dos Cedros, in Santa Catarina, southern Brazil, Tuesday, September 22.
The husband reportedly left the family home after the couple broke up – and killed his wife when he found out she had another lover.
Police said the suspected killer told them he poisoned her with a piece of meat, but did not plan to transfer to the baby through breast milk when she fed the child shortly after, reports ND +.
During questioning, he stressed that the murder of the child was accidental and then showed the police where the bodies were buried.
Suspicion grew after the suspect texted the victim’s family from her phone after the murder, making mysterious comments about her move to a new location, after which she was no longer available when they were tried to call back.
Lopes’ teenage son sounded the alarm when he decided that his mother’s message that she was moving to Rio Grande do Sul appeared to have been written by someone else.
Deputy Diogo Medeiros said the suspect’s testimony was confusing and there were gaps in his account during questioning.
The investigation is ongoing.
