14 year old Daiane Carmo Macedo from Barcarena, which is about 123 miles from Belém (meaning Bethlehem), capital city of the state of Pará in northern Brazil went missing in June of 2012. Her mother reported the girl’s disappearance to the police but even after several reports, the police did nothing about it. After 5 days, the villagers decided to search through the jungles surrounding the community themselves.
Among the villagers who joined the search party was Daiane Carmo Macedo’s stepfather, 37 year old Rosivan Martins Rocha nicknamed Baixinho (Shorty) who pretended to search for the girl like he really meant it. Little did the villagers know at the time that he was the very man behind her disappearance.
Thorough search eventually lead to the discovery of the girl’s body near the road known as Ramal do Araticu, in the Santo Antônio community in rural Barcarena. Daiane was tied to a tree where she was left to die and rot. She was naked and her face was slashed with a machete.
Luckily, after her discovery the police took the case seriously and pinned down the perpetrator(s) within 24 hours. Turned out Daiane Carmo Macedo was raped by her own stepfather who confessed to rape, but implicated his neighbor – 43 year old Raimundo Alves da Costa nicknamed Nezico as orchestrator of girl’s murder. Stupid idea – dead girls can’t be raped no more. Both were arrested and are awaiting trial.
