A ‘se x monster’ is accused of ripping a young schoolgirl’s heart out of her chest after ra ping and killing her in a horrific act.
Jairo Lopes, 42, allegedly targeted 10-year-old Raiana Aparecida Candida as she walked to school in the Brazilian state of Minais Gerais last week.
The youngster’s body was discovered on a country farm in Buenopolis, around 440 miles north of Rio de Janeiro, with her heart reportedly torn out.
He initially claimed he was innocent but later reportedly confessed to the barbaric crime.
She said: “His house is about three miles from the property Raiana lived in.
“A few days before she disappeared, he turned up, said his name was Roberto and asked to speak to her dad
“Her grandfather said he wasn’t in. This man stayed and chatted for a while, smoked a cigarette and said he was looking for work.”
