An 11-year-old victim of sexual assault died in Brazil, days after her premature birth to a child with which she became pregnant from a 43-year-old man, who had sex with her for 3 years.
Brazilian police said that Francisco Moraes persuaded the little girl Luana Costa from the rural town of Uruara in the state of Barra, northern Brazil, to take pictures with him as if they were an adult couple in a normal relationship, and posted dozens of pictures of them on his social media pages.
Luanas family members were not aware of the sexual assault until they noticed changes in her body and took her to the doctor who revealed that she was five months pregnant, prompting the girl to tell her family about the abuse she had suffered over a period of three years.
According to her aunt, the man threatened the victim not to inform anyone, and he carried out his crimes far from the family’s village.
Luana was in her fifth month of pregnancy when her baby had to be delivered quickly, and she died four days after giving birth, on October 27.
The “Daily Mail” newspaper pointed out that the police are searching for the accused, who is still at large.
