Revelations of a Schizophrenic
According to Fox News Latino, Jorge Beltrao Negromonte described Jessica Camila da Silva Pereira’s murder in a book he wrote around the time of the killings: “Looking at the now lifeless body of the evil adolescent, I feel relieved. I grab some sheet metal and begin to remove all the skin and then I divide her up…we dine on the flesh of evil as a purification ritual. We bury the remainder in the patio.”
Negromonte, who holds a degree in education and a black belt in karate, has a history of mental illness and has acknowledged that he hears voices. He self-published a 34-chapter illustrated work, Revelations of a Schizophrenic. In March 2012 he even registered the book with a notary public for posterity. The book’s narrative suggests he’s obsessed with murdering women, and that he’s convinced these murders are part of some sort of necessary purification divine powers have called on him to enact.
He and wife Isabel Cristina Pires and mistress Bruna Cristina Oliviera form a small cult they call the Cartel, which, according to lead investigator Democrito Honorato de Oliveira, is dedicated to “the purification of the world and the reduction of its population.”
In addition to the book, the threesome has made a movie, Espirito, in which a woman named Hellen is tortured by her husband’s ghost. Investigators believe the violence depicted in the movie was duplicated in real life.
Arrest hasn’t quieted Negromonte. From his jail cell, told Brazilian TV’s Jornal Caruaru (in an interview later reported by the Daily Beast) that arrows and millions of images had entered his head and that, along with a cherubim and an archangel, they demanded that he deliver unto God “evil” women whose ID cards included “bad numbers.”
He seems to have been serious about his mission. There may be more victims.
A Second Helping
Shortly after police exhumed the bodies of Giselly Helena and Alexandra Falcão, a mob of neighbors, horrified to learn the nature of the mystery meat in their empanadas, retaliated by storming the Negromonte home and burning it down.
The destruction may hamper efforts to determine whether the trio left more victims.
Police now believe that Jorge Beltrao Negromonte, Isabel Cristina Pires and Bruna Cristina Oliviera had intended to kill three women each year. Inspector Wesley Fernandes has said that the gruesome threesome had already been planning to kill a woman from nearby Lagoa do Ouro when the dead woman’s mysterious credit charges led to their arrest.
And police spokesman Carlos Leite has told reporters that his colleagues believe the demon throuple of Garanhuns may have murdered four more women in Pernambuco and another in Paraiba. Investigations are ongoing.
