First he was segregated, then tortured and beheaded by those who should have taken care of him. The young Rhuan Maycon, 9 years old, was found torn to pieces and put in some suitcases in Samambaia, about 20 miles from the capital Brasilia, in Brazil. Following the investigation, the police proceeded to arrest the mother , 27-year-old Rosana da Silva Auri Candido, and her partner, 28-year-old Kacyla Priscyla Santiago Damasceno.

The two women would have forced the child to live the last 5 years of his life in a real hell torturing him and beating him up in the hope of killing him. The child was kept from going to school and socialising with other children, so the two traveled around the country trying to avoid controls by the authorities.

To disguise the crime, his mother had reported Rhuan’s disappearance but in reality she had been the author of a terrible crime. The child, in fact, had his penis cut off seemingly about two years ago, and on his body there were signs of old violence. The women ripped the skin off his face, his eyes, they beheaded him and finally they tore him apart, distributing the pieces in various suitcases in an attempt to get rid of them definitively. According to reports in the local press, it seems that the women considered the child an economic burden, so they decided to get rid of him.
