THE The BODY of a missing mother was found burnt in a garbage bag days after pleading with her neighbors for help following an alleged assault on her husband, reports said.
The remains of mother of two Vanessa Rodrigues da Silva, 31, were found in the backyard of a farm in Novo Planalto, in Brazil’s Goiás region.
The woman went missing on August 11, after she was allegedly assaulted by her husband and begged her neighbors to help her in Porangatu.
Her worried family contacted authorities after spending five days trying to locate her, reports G1.
The woman’s husband was arrested for illegal possession of a gun and ammunition, but posted bond and left the police station.
After the cops made the grim discovery, they named him as the prime suspect in the case.
He has been on the run ever since.
The seller’s sister, Genilva Rodrigues da Silva, told the store that she arrived at the scene to identify her sister’s body. Delegate Luciano Santos also confirmed that it was the body of the saleswoman.
Genilva said: ‘He burned it and put it in two garbage bags. At the farm gate in the courtyard.
We have even been there before, the police too. We saw that bag there, but we didn’t even imagine what was inside. ”
He destroyed a family. We want him locked up to at least ease the pain we are feeling.
The heartbroken sister said the couple had been together for 15 years and were in a difficult relationship.
She added that they had been separated for a year and that the woman’s husband was jealous and would not let her work.
“In the family, we always thought he was weird. He had a strong eye for the women in the family and was jealous of Vanessa’s own nephews,” she said.
The couple’s children, aged 5 and 11, are with their grandmother until the case is resolved.
The victim’s niece, Beatriz Ferreira, called for the man’s arrest to “ease the pain of the family”.
She said, “He destroyed a family. We want him locked up to at least ease the pain we are feeling.
“He will never be able to pay for what he has done, but with him in prison we will be calmer.”
