For some time now, there has been a trend in many media: if a crime has certain authors, the identity of the criminal is simply silenced or hidden.

They castrated the child a year ago and they murdered him the night of May 30 to 31
The last example of this media silencing we have with a bloody news happened in Brazil. A lesbian couple, Rosana Auri da Silva Cândido and Kacyla Priscyla Santiago Damasceno, were detained by the Civil Police on May 31 in Samambaia, in the Federal District, in connection with the murder - on the night of May 30-31 - of 9-year-old Rhuan Maycon da Silva Castro, as Correio Braziliense reported.
According to the investigation opened by the 26th Civil Police Delegation of Samambaia Norte, the child's mother, 27-year-old Rosana Auri da Silva, and her girlfriend Kacyla Priscyla Santiago, 28, had neutered the boy by amputating his penis a year ago. Finally, shortly before being arrested, the lesbian couple murdered the child when he slept, stabbing him with knives. The child's body was found dismembered, decapitated and with the skin torn off. In addition, the girlfriend of the boy's mother tried to burn the remains of the victim on a barbecue, according to the newspaper O Tempo. The child's remains were found in two school bags and a suitcase. The alleged murderers are now in preventive detention awaiting trial.
They had kidnapped children 5 years ago after losing custody
In the Brazilian media, several hypotheses have been published about the possible motive of this horrendous crime: from black magic until the child's mother associated the child with his father, for whom he would have been mistreated. The murdered boy had a little sister, 8 years old, who lived with the alleged murderers in the house in which the crime was perpetrated. According to channel 1 of Globo television, the girl claimed that her mother had killed her brother. On Friday, May 31, around 1:30 am, a group of young people playing soccer in a field saw a woman abandoning a suitcase in a sewer. When the young people went to see what the suitcase contained, they found part of the child's remains and warned the Military Police, the Brazilian gendarmerie corps.
Globo television has also indicated that the women were from Rio Blanco, in the Brazilian state of Acre, but they fled there five years ago, when Rosana Auri da Silva lost custody of the children in favor of her father. So, instead of delivering the children, she kidnapped them and fled with the children and her girlfriend. The lesbian couple settled in Samambaia two months ago, where according to neighbors the children did not go to school and did not have contact with the street.
Media silence in Europe about crime
In Brazil the news has appeared in various media. It has also been published by several media of Hispanic America. However, I have searched for the news in European media and I have not found any reference. In Spain the news has not appeared in any media, probably because no agency will have served it. The news has begun to spread in Spain through social media, with links to Brazilian media and the US website Political Bullpen. Something similar happened a few months ago in relation to a crime perpetrated by a lesbian couple in the US, who murdered the six black children they had adopted. Then, many European media also did not report the crime.
