A Murder Most Wicked: The Vanessa Guillen case Brazil
The Vanessa Macortte Case
In November 2020, the body of Vanessa Macortte was found by the side of a highway in Brazil. The 19-year-old had been strangled to death and her body mutilated. Her killer? None other than her own boyfriend, Luis Miranda, who confessed to the crime. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the case itself and try to understand what motivated Miranda might have to kill his girlfriend in such a brutal way.
On November 27, 2020, the body of Vanessa Macortte was found by the side of a highway near Sao Paulo, Brazil. The 19-year-old had been strangled to death and her body mutilated; her killer had carved out her eyes and stabbed her in the Genitals.
On the day of the murder, Miranda lured Vanessa into his car under the pretense of going for a drive. Once they were alone, he strangled her to death. He then drove to a remote location where he mutilated her body before dumping it by the side of the road.
JusticeForVanessa has become a trending hashtag on social media as people demanded that Miranda be given the harshest possible punishment for his crimes.
On January 5th, 2020, 20-year-old Vanessa Guillen was found dead in her car in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her body was badly beaten and showed signs of torture. Her hands were tied behind her back with telephone wire and her mouth was taped shut. Investigators believe she was killed elsewhere and then her body was dumped in the car.
This murder has sent shockwaves throughout Brazil and the world. Vanessa was a beautiful young woman with her entire life ahead of her. Who could have done this to her? And why?
Vanessa’s Mother’s Plea for Justice
Vanessa’s mother, SilviaTPereira, has taken to social media to plead for justice for her daughter. “I just want to know who did this to my daughter,” she said in an emotional video posted to Twitter. “She didn’t deserve this. She was a good person.”
JusticeforVanessa has been trending on Twitter as people around the world express their outrage over this heinous crime.
The Police Investigation
Police are investigating several leads, but so far there have been no arrests. They are looking into whether Vanessa was targeted because she worked as a bank teller or if this was a random act of violence. They are also looking at surveillance footage from nearby businesses to see if they can identify any suspects.
What we know so far is that Vanessa left work at around 6pm on January 5th and got into her car to head home. Her body was found in the car at around 9pm that same night. Investigators believe she was killed elsewhere and then her body was dumped in the car. An autopsy is being performed to determine the exact cause of death.
The murder of Vanessa has stunned Brazil and the world. This beautiful young woman had her whole life ahead of her until someone took it away in a barbaric act of violence. We can only hope that the police will be able to quickly solve this case and bring the culprit to justice. Our thoughts are with Vanessa’s family and friends during this difficult time.
Luis Miranda, Vanessa’s previous boyfriend admitted to the crime. Which would explain the motive but we know that a lot of people under pressure of the police can false confess. Was this Luis’s doing or someone else’s?
