The case took place on May 9 and the two boys, aged 32 and 23, bought ammunition used in the crime.
Two more boys, 32 and 21, were arrested this Thursday afternoon (24) for involvement in the murder of Silvana Inácio Garcia, 46, and the attempted murder of Elias Moreira dos Santos, 55. The crime took place on May 9 of this year, in Costa Rica, a city 326 kilometers from Campo Grande.
The two were arrested by a team of the PM (Military Police). The oldest was found in the house where he lives on Rua Ismeria Borges Nunes, downtown. The police received information about where he was and that there was a warrant against him.
The 21-year-old boy was arrested at the door of the house where he lives on Rua Espirito Santo, also in the central region of the city. The officers also knew about the outstanding arrest warrant and received information on where they could find the suspect.
They received a voice of arrest and were taken to the Civil Police Station of the city, where they confirmed their involvement in the crimes and had their preventive detention decreed. Both are expected to go through a custody hearing later this afternoon.
To Campo Grande Newspolice chief Caique Ducatti said that the two boys were responsible for buying the ammunition used in both the attempted and completed murder.
“The Civil Police carried out the investigation and concluded that they helped by buying the ammunition and we represented the preventive detention of the two. As they helped knowing that the crimes would be committed, they are responsible for murder and attempted murder, with the same penalty as those who executed them”, said Ducatti.
Case – Silvana was killed in the early hours of May 9, shot by a 16-year-old boy, in the house where he lived on Rua Rio Grande do Sul, Bairro Sonho Meu, in Costa Rica. At the time, Elias was also at the scene and was hit by two shots, leaving him in serious condition.
According to the incident report, the teenager was Elias’ ex-brother-in-law and asked to use the bathroom and then shot the case. Silvana was hit by three shots, one in the head, one in the chest and one in the hand.
The crime would have been motivated after a 3-year-old girl told her mother that Elias had messed with her. The abuse was eventually confirmed by an expert report. Silvana knew about the crime and was therefore also the target of the teenager.
Until July 4th, two minors, the principal and two men had been arrested for the crime that was planned by Silvana’s ex-daughter-in-law. She confessed that she planned to kill the couple after her daughter told her she was abused by Elias.
