According to delegate Eliardo Amoroso Jordão, however, the request is a legal instrument of the investigation and ‘does not accuse anyone’
A Civil police asked for the temporary arrest of the adoptive father of the three brothers who died in a fire in Poa, in the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo, this Wednesday, 17. Gabriel Reis, 9 years old; Fernanda, 14, and Lorenzo, 2, lived with Ricardo Reis de Faria and Vieira. The room in which they slept caught fire. Ricardo even asked for help at the police station in the region, but it was not possible to save the children.
According to police chief Eliardo Amoroso Jordão, the request for the arrest of the adoptive father, who shared custody with his partner, “is a legal instrument to enable the continuation of investigations and does not accuse anyone.” “We have some information, both about the location and information given by the witnesses, and we are in the process of confirming, or not, this information,” he said. At least eight witnesses have been heard so far among family members, neighbors and police officers who responded to the incident. Ricardo’s defense said he would not comment on the case.
