Garnering 2.5 million followers on the gram, popular model, Suelyn Mederios was arrested last weekend in Rio de Janeiro. After being reported missing by her family, Ms. Mederios, accompanied by two teenage boys, was stopped by municipal guards for not wearing a mask. She tried to escape, throwing both her Brazilian and American passports on the ground, in an attempt to flee. Upon the stop, detainees explained how Suelyn was nervous and showed erratic behavior before they made a search. The two teenage boys, were also without mask at Arpoador beach, as they both managed to escape. The agents soon found cocaine and pills, hidden in her top, where she was later charged with possession of narcotic drugs. NO word on what happened with the teenagers thus far, but Suelyn posted bail immediately and hasn’t been seen on social media since. Some linked to the story are citing dirty cops and illegal searching with the Leblon police station. We’ll update the story if anything else comes to light in the coming days. <SNIP> LINK

Brazilian serial killer behind bars Sunday, 21 November, 2004 Thirty-nine-year-old Francisco das Chagas is a bicycle mechanic and a self-confessed serial killer. He says that, starting in 1989, he murdered 41 boys and teenagers in the states of Maranhao and Para in northern Brazil. All of the victims were castrated. For the last six months, Chagas has been supplying details to the police. He agreed to a BBC interview, which took place at a police station in Sao Luis, the state capital of Maranhao. “I did this because something was guiding me, directing me,” he explained. “It was like a voice in my head. And it was that thing – the voice – that determined what happened.” Grisly murders For the interview, Chagas was wearing a green polo shirt, jeans and handcuffs. He spoke softly but deliberately. I asked whether he was telling the truth about these crimes. Could he possibly be confused? “I’m not confused, and I am telling the truth,” came the reply, “and you’re hearing it from me personally.” He is likely to face trial early next year. Since he has made a full confession to the police and a judge, what is at issue is not his innocence or guilt – but whether he understood his actions. If a jury accepts Chagas’ contention that he was not mentally in control of his actions, and that outside forces were guiding him, he will be confined to psychiatric care. If not, he will go to prison. The police are sceptical about his explanation. Twenty minutes’ drive from Sao Luis, Detective Joao Carlos Diniz shows me the rural plot where Chagas’ home once stood. Officers found three bodies buried here – and the detective explains that Chagas volunteered his confession only after the grim discovery. “What happened here is what I call the ‘chameleon effect’,” says Diniz. “Chagas was clever – he blended into the scenery. And from the outside, it was almost impossible to spot him.”<SNIP> LINK
