Brazil Asks for Arrest of Woman Who Murdered American She Met on the Internet

The Brazilian police have indicted a Brazilian woman for kidnapping and then killing an American man she met through the Internet. Authorities have called for her preventive arrest.

Raymond James Mierrel, a composer from the United States, has been missing since April. According to the police of São José dos Campos, in the interior of São Paulo state, he was killed by his Brazilian girlfriend Regina Filomena Rachid, with the help of Evandro Celso Augusto Ribeiro and Nelson de Siqueira Neves.

The American had visited the girlfriend twice before. The investigations reveal that during the seven days that Mierrel stayed at Rachid’s house in his last visit he was doped with narcotics and alcohol so that he would give the passwords to his ATM cards. The Brazilian woman ended up withdrawing about US$ 46,000 from his accounts.

In order to conceal her tracks, the Brazilian woman, on April 2 rented a Chevrolet Corsa and after killing the American with an electrical wire, with the help of Ribeiro and Neves, took the dead man in the car to an empty lot in Caçapava, a little city in the interior of São Paulo, and set the composer’s body on fire. He ended up being buried as an indigent since the police could not identify the body.

Mierrel’s parents took their case to the FBI when their son didn’t come back on April 4 as scheduled and they were not able to establish any contact with him.

Regina was  arrested in June while trying to rob a businessman in a shopping mall in São José of the Campos. The police at that time found in her purse a bank card that belonged to Mierrel.

Arrested on September 23, in Cabo Frio, a Rio beach resort, Ribeiro confessed that he got 12,000 reais (US$ 5,500) to get rid of the American’s body. Ribeiro blamed Regina for planning and executing the murder.

Neves, the other suspect, has just turned himself to the São José dos Campos police this Monday, October 2.  The three involved in the crime are being indicted for kidnapping followed by homicide. They could get as much as 30 years in jail.

    yeah right 7 years sentence ended up doing between 3 – 4 years for murder, kidnap, robbery, extortion, fraud, to name a few, what a corrupt country, sounds like poor Ray Merril ended up paying the judges bribe!! to let the evil bitch off, had Ray been my brother i would o definitely taken advantage of Brazil’s corrupt system because if a few thousand dollars gets you less years in prison it would surely get you more, or a death sentence if you know what i mean, so Regina Filomena Crasovich Rachid, or whatever your name is Beware as we’ve been having a whip-roun (collection) for our man in Brazil

    Hey David, we all Brazilians will make sure this monstruous murder will rot in jail forever. And this with all the “special treats” jail has to offer to her in Brazil, haha.
    Don ‘t be afraid to come to Brazil, there are plenty of beautiful places to visit, and an incredible hospitality from all the Brazilians. We are a friendly country, with no enemies (other than in the soccer fields!), and everyone is welcome, always.
    This brutal and coward murder is very SAD news for all of us in Brazil and it is monstruous that someone can murder for cash. Take care!

      Ya ya you sure made this monsterous beast spend a long time in there…NOT. I’ve seen shoplifters get longer sentences. Tells me everything I need to know about what they REALLY think of an American having been tortured, robbed, & murdered. They share the exact same thinking as the hideous beast (who is btw ugly AF, who killled him) they believe he deserves it for being “stupid” & I heard she was out in a couple of years with her new Botox clinic that he had initially helped her with. Sad & despicable & I would not go to your country if THEY PAYED ME. Disgusting and repulsive soulless people what do they care about him or any other American? This proves it

    Re: Brazilian murderess
    I hope this cold, desperate bitch fries like an egg, or rots in a jail for the rest of her life!!! 🙁 Thank GOD she was stupid enough to carry around a suspiciously missing man’s credit card. Oh, and no trips to Brazil for me, thanks! I prefer to have a say in who receives my money.
