According to police, prints found on Monique’s cell phone during the investigation show conversations between the woman and the employee dated February 2
The Civil Police of Rio de Janeiro, who arrested the councilor Dr. Jairinho and professor Monique Medeiros this Thursday, 8, for trying to interfere in the investigations of the death of Henry Borel, 4, pointed out that the boy’s mother was complicit in the violence suffered by her stepfather and had been warned by her son’s nanny about assaults at least a month before the crime. Images found on Monique’s cell phone during the police investigation show conversations between the woman and the employee dated February 2. “The nanny says that Henry reported to her that his stepfather took him by the arm, gave him a band, a slip, and kicked him. It was quite clear that there was an injury there. In continuity, the nanny herself says that Henry was limping, that when he wanted to bathe Henry he would not let her wash her head because she was having headaches. It is obvious that this is an absolutely relevant test ”, pointed out delegate Henrique Damasceno at a press conference.
According to the deputy, the boy would have told the nanny that he was threatened by his stepfather and that he was frequently beaten by him, always inside the room where he was found dead. Monique Medeiros did not communicate to the police about the aggression and did not remove the aggressor from living with Jairinho. “It is important to say that she has a legal obligation to do this, it is not just a moral obligation, it is a legal obligation imposed by Brazilian law,” said Damasceno, who stressed that the woman presented “a lying statement protecting the murderer of the own son ”when giving testimony. The nanny is being investigated for the crime of false information for having said, in testimony, that she was never aware of aggressions against the boy. Her cell was seized and now investigators want to find out if she was coerced or pressured to lie. The case was considered by the police to be “difficult”, as there were no witnesses or cameras inside the residence that could assist in the investigations.
Despite evidence of the violence committed by the councilman, Thursday’s arrest warrant was temporary and lasts for 30 days. This is because police investigations have not yet been completed and a number of reports have yet to be issued. “However, we have already gathered very strong, very convincing evidence, up to the present moment, regarding all this dynamics and participation of each one of them”, said the delegate. According to a necroscopic report, the cause of Henry’s death, who has already arrived at the hospital with no life, was a laceration in his liver. He had a series of bruises on his body, bleeding on his head and blood on his abdomen.
