Devastated by the death of her daughter Thuane da Silva Machado, found buried in a neighbour’s garden, Simone is convinced that she could have saved her.
According to information reported by The Sun, the facts date back to Monday, May 2, 2022 in southern Brazil. That day, Simone sent her daughter Thuane to buy vegetables without suspecting that she would never see her again. Panicked at not seeing her return, the mother of the family quickly started looking for her in her neighborhood, in vain. Back home, she remembered a sad detail: “When I passed by my neighbor’s house, I heard someone shouting ‘Mom, help me!'” A terrible memory that still haunts her today: “I went home. 30 minutes later, I finally realized.”
Convinced that it was her daughter, Simone went to her neighbour’s. Upon entering, she noticed he was watching a pornographic film on his television but found nothing. After he left, the man left on his motorbike as if nothing had happened. The police arrived on the scene and cordoned off the perimeter: “At nightfall, I don’t know how they did it but they found her buried in the garden.” Declared dead at the age of 20, Thuane was taken to the Duque de Caxias morgue in Rio de Janeiro. Autopsy results showed signs of sexual assault on her body.
The neighbor is still on the run
According to the tender confidences of Simone, Thuane was “perfect”, “close to her family” and “practising” like her. The mom explained that her daughter didn’t like going out too much. On the contrary, she preferred “to stay on her cell phone” because she was “a pretty quiet girl.” At the time of this writing, the investigation continues at the crime scene. As for the police, they continue to actively search for the neighbor, whose first name has not been revealed. A photo of the suspect was however shared and a call for witnesses was launched in order to obtain as much information as possible.
