3 French NGO Workers Knifed to Death in Brazil with Refinements of Cruelty

Police car from Rio, Brazil Police car from Rio, Brazil

Police car from Rio, Brazil The Brazilian policemen who first arrived to the crime scene were shocked at all the blood and terror images they found in the Copacabana (Rio) apartment in which three French were murdered this morning.

According to them, the floor, furniture and objects were smeared with blood and the victims' bodies presented deep cuts and signs of being subjected to extreme cruelty.

Three French nationals – two men and a woman – were found dead after a neighbor heard screams and called the police. The military police who answered the call discovered the bodies mutilated and tied to chairs. It's believed that the victims reacted since the place had clothes and drawers spread all over.

According to authorities, two of those slaughtered were a couple with a two-year-old son who lived in the ninth floor of the building.

The victims were Delphine Douyère and Christian Doupes, the directors of the NGO Terr'Ativa (Active Earth) and Jerome Faure, an employee at the organization. Apparently the couple's little boy, Max, had been taken by two friends of the family before the tragedy.

They lived for 12 years in Brazil and worked on the third floor of the same building for Terr'Ativa, a Non Governmental Organization dedicated to improve education of children of poor communities.

Witnesses say they saw three men entering the building around 8 and going to the ONG's office in the third floor. Police were able to arrest Tárcio Wilson Ramirez, 25, when he tried to leave the building carrying a safe. Ramires was helped by Terr'Ativa and worked for the organization for 10 years.

He told authorities that he worked for Terr'Ativa and was diverting money from NGO with the complicity of Delphine Douyère, the executive secretary of the organization. Gonzaga said that the embezzlement had been discovered and that Douyère was denying that she had anything to do with it.

That's when he decided to hire some people "to give the French guys a scare." Yesterday, they bought masks, surgical gloves and knifes in downtown Rio. Today the scare turned into a bloody, cruel massacre.

Another suspect arrested by the police, Luí­s Gonzaga, confessed the crime to the policemen of the 12th Police District in Copacabana.

    Thanks mate, you are absolutely right about decent morals . I hope that your kid is bilingual and speaks English too. I am asking this,because, lots of Brazilian moms insist that the kids speak only in Portuguese,even though the dads are foreigners.

    Be in touch and take care.

    Good luck to you as well andy, and as far as my daughter, it’s the principle reason I’m still here. I certainly can’t depend upon brazilian society to teach her to have decent morals.

    Amoral
    This case could enter into any textbook as an illustration of AMORALITY…

    Let me see: three French people, who gave this fucker a helping hand, trying to give him education, support and credibility… Only to be killed in an outright brutal, barbaric and horrible manner, by this same fucker…

    And I thought, after the killing of Joao Helio 2-3 weeks ago, nothing can shock me anymore…However now, I am truly speechless

    Yeah their are a lot of illegal Brazilians in the US. Not long ago one was sentenced to life without parol for killing a taxi driver in newark after the robbery. Ssafe to say the asshole will never see Brazil again, and will die in jail.

    [quote][/quote]Andy, don’t take this the wrong way, but wtf do you think I said? You only restated exactly what I stated. [quote][/quote]

    No,Bo I am not offended.As a matter of fact, the comment was meant for people who close their eyes and pretend that the problems do not exist.I think it was you who said a few weeks ago that unless one recognizes that there is a problem, he cannot come out with the right solution.The Brazilian media normally down play the problems and there are so many Brazilians who are craving for an alternative media. I do not know if you are aware that 65% of ORKUTÀ‚´s participants consists of Brazilians.So my idea is to bring them to discuss the real issues in a forum like this and I think you have plenty of constructive criticisms and concrete suggestions to make.It is a pity that the participants do not appreciate!.

    BTW, I got your message from another post also. You may be an American and have been here for the past 10 years. I have been in Brazil(on and off) for over 30 years. I am in a very similar situation as you are,except that I dont have Brazilian kidsmof whose future I dont have to worry about.

    Re your last question: Right now I am in Brazil and not at Cork. My family is spread all over the world. I am turly an international citizen. I am planning to travel to S.Africa and India in April. Lets see what happens. In the meantime, I hope your enterprise is going well. Bo,it is not easy to be a foreigner in Brazil. I hope you are teaching good values to your daughter. Good luck and God bless you all.

    It makes you really wonder about human nature. I have also attempted to help people who were not in the same position as I was. I think they resented that I was in a better position and attempted to screw me over. I am not a big advocate of direct involvement with helping the downtrodden. It is the job of the government. I will help people but I don’t need my name attached to a cause or do any missionary work or anything.. My roots are in a very poor country already. It is another awful story from Brazil. I

    who wrote 50.- Reais per month as Bolsa Familia ??????
    Here is simple maths :
    Annual Bolsa Familia budget : 8 billion Reais (not US$)
    45 million people benefitting.

    Thus 8 billion reais divided by 45 millions divided by 12 months equals….. Reais 14,81
    MONTHLY AND NOT REAIS 50.- as suggested !!!!

    Or 0,50 reais per day !!!!!!

    And as I wrote many times, Lula the maths expert or the expert crook , loudly and with pride repeated many times : millions and millions of citizens can finally have 3 decent meals….PER DAY….. DUE TO HIS GENEROSITY !!!!!!

    Yesssss…who can have 3 decent meals per day in Brazil…costing 0,50 reais for the 3 meals ???????

    Is Lula a honest and sincere man or are brazilians so idiots that they trust whatever he says ??????????

    To TB (and BO)

    Bo,my friend: You do talk a lot of sense too. But how do you expect the country to be better when? a) The education is the 7th in the list of priorities for the Brazilians b) The distribution of wealth means the government giving a hand out of 50 reais per month as “Bolsa Familiar”[/quote]

    Andy, don’t take this the wrong way, but wtf do you think I said? You only restated exactly what I stated.

    Andy Murphy, are you in brazil, or in Cork?

  • CH.C.

    Ooops!
    Typing mistake, should read :
    Just remember what happened to the young kid, 2 weeks ago !

  • CH.C.

    Who is surprised ??????
    In Brazil massacres happen weekly, and shortly…..daily !

    And who had a doubt that brazilians are Masters…..in cruelty ?
    Just remember what happened to the you to the kid, 2 weeks ago !

    Brazil doesnt slip in to anarchy, it is already in anarchy and in a state of war….against itself !

    To TB (and BO)

    TB: Your comments make lot of sense,if one thinks seriously.The guy in question had worked for the Active Earth for 10 years and I am sure he was not paid just the minimum wage.Now his employers got a pay back for creating job opportunities for him, a nasty one though.

    Bo,my friend: You do talk a lot of sense too. But how do you expect the country to be better when? a) The education is the 7th in the list of priorities for the Brazilians b) The distribution of wealth means the government giving a hand out of 50 reais per month as “Bolsa Familiar”

    To sum it up,in Brazil, you are rewarded for being a “Pobre Coitadinho”.

    A pitbull is a pitbull is a pitbull, donÀ‚´t try and train it to be poodle.
    Sadly, you can take the animal from the wild but not the wild from the animal. Even after 10 years of steady employment, housing, food, education, and a new lease on life, this beast from the hills still decided to turn on those that cared for him – so letÀ‚´s talk MORE about social initiatives to curb violence?

    As much as I hate to say it, because believe me, it pains me to think of my daughter growing up here, but “chickens do come home to roost”. Rio de Janeiro is a microcosm of what brazil will be like in every nook and cranny in another 100 years if they don’t do something about educating the masses and distributing the wealth more appropriately.
