Dead children are never a nice sight, but when the little ones get murdered by their own parent, it gets beyond horrific. However, this case is far more shocking – two children, a 6 year old boy named Vinicius and his little sister Thaís who was only 1 year and 7 months old were butchered by their own mother. By the very person who gave them birth.
On November 7, 2006, 25 year old Rosa Camacho Elisangela grabbed an angle grinder, started it up and walked up to the room where her two children were. It’s hard to imagine what it must have been like for the siblings – who were just playing together – to listen to the sound of the power tool come closer and closer to the room and when the door burst opened, to see their mother, a person whom you naturally expect to always be there for you and to always protect you, come at you with that fast spinning disc that can cut through metal.
What happened to that instinctive love that a mother naturally feels for her children? Killing little children is an act that raises many questions on its own, but how could a woman kill children who came out of her own body? How could you possibly deal with the pictures of your own kids crying while you’re cutting them up with an angle grinder popping up in your mind for the rest of your life?
Rosa Camacho Elisangela allegedly suffered from Post Natal Depression (doctors will find a name for anything – if you like farting in water and tell your doc about it, he’ll come up with a diagnosis for a previously unspecified condition he’d cleverly name The Irresistible Water Farting Urge Syndrome). That Tuesday, the day when she killed her own kids with an angle grinder started as your average day:
A mother of two took her children to school in the morning, run her own errands during the day, picked up the kids from school in early afternoon, headed home with them, put them in the bedroom, opened her husband’s toolbox, picked up an angle grinder, revved it up, walked up to the bedroom, grabbed at 6 year old Vinicius and beheaded him right there, with that angle grinder all the while little one and a half year old Thaís was watching in horror. Her turn at being killed with the angle grinder came next.
Gilmar de Paula Oliveira, the father of killed children was the first to witness the grisly scene. Can you imagine a better picture returning home after a whole day at the job than finding your own kids lying dead in a pool of blood?
Rosa Camacho Elisangela didn’t resist the arrest and confessed to killing her own children. I don’t think she’s having any more of them anytime soon. And to ease your curiosity – yes, it did happen exactly where you thought it did. There is only one country in the world where something this horrific could take place. It’s the same country where a teenage boy would not hesitate to murder and mutilate his friend over a video game dispute, where dead bodies are all over the streets, where jealous boyfriends shoot their ex-girlfriends to death in broad daylight, where justice is in the hands of lynching mobs, where drug dealers walk through the streets armed with military grade fire arms, where… you get the memo. It’s Brazil – the most dangerous and violent country in the world.
The town of Bauru where the killings took place is located some 345 km from Sao Paulo – Brazilian capital city, in Almerinda Keys district, municipality of Jundiaí, in the state of São Paulo.
