Last farewell in Brazil to indigenist murdered in the Amazon


Last farewell in Brazil to indigenist murdered in the Amazon

Brasilia, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) The wake and cremation of the Brazilian indigenist Bruno Araújo, recently murdered in the Amazon together with the English journalist Dom Phillips, took place in a cemetery in the state of Pernambuco (northeast).

G1 news assures that these services took place in the Morada da Paz Cemetery, in the municipality of Paulista, in Grande Recife, the main metropolitan region of the territorial division.

The bodies of Araújo and Phillips, a contributor to The Guardian newspaper, who were in Brasilia, were delivered yesterday to their respective families.

Both disappeared on June 5, while making a trip in the native land of the Javari Valley, from where they left for Atalaia do Norte, although they did not reach their destination.

Their remains were found on June 15 in an area identified by arrested fisherman Amarildo da Costa Oliveira, known as Pelado, who confessed to having buried the bodies near Atalaia do Norte, in a forest on the banks of the Itacoaí River. The bodies were dismembered, burned and then thrown into a ditch.

Another suspect, already arrested, is Pelado’s brother, Oseney Oliveira, nicknamed Dos Santos.

The Federal Police (PF) also reported last Sunday that, in addition to the three arrested, five other suspects were identified as being involved in covering up the victims’ remains.
