These photos show an aftermath of a cruel and twisted infanticide from Brazil. The baby was allegedly aborted, though it looks fully developed. If that’s how much hair you can grow inside a Brazilian womb, then I want to go inside a Brazilian womb cause this allegedly aborted baby has more hair than I do.
The pictures are from a place called Brejo Santo, which Google Translates says means Swamp Ghost. If I lived in a town called Swamp Ghost, I’d never want to leave. That’s the baddest name for town I’ve ever heard. It’s even badder than Corpus Christi 😉
The story started in the morning hours on Monday, April 23, 2012. 35 year old Lucena Evandro de Melo, resident of Sitio Ribeirão where he runs a farm, woke up to find his wife, 32 year old Jane Belo de Moura with severe vaginal bleeding. He took her to the Hospital Geral de Brejo Santo – the Swamp Ghost General Hospital – where she was examined and the doctors concluded that she had an abortion.
So Lucena Evandro de Melo went back to his house with his sister where they found a baby in a cardboard box. The baby the umbilical cord wrapped around its waist and its body was covered with bruises and cuts, especially in the legs and groin areas.
This is where the story gets a bit sketchy – farmer’s wife allegedly kept the fact that she was pregnant hidden from her husband. I don’t know how a woman could possibly hide an advanced stage of pregnancy from her husband, but that’s allegedly what happened.
The police are investigating on the case, treating it as a possible infanticide. The Swamp Ghost General Hospital – can I get admitted?
