Mum and daughter found decapitated in bed in brutal murder after neighbours reported hearing ‘strange noises’ in house | The Sun

A YOUNG mum and her daughter were found decapitated in their Brazilian home after reporting safety concerns to police.

The bodies of seven year old Lívia Thauane and her 24-year-old mum Edineuza Carvalho Rodrigues were discovered three days after Christmas.

"Strange movements" in their home in Casa Nova, Bahia, Brazil, caused concern for neighbours, who called the police after worries for the family.

Young Lívia and mum Edineuza were found decapitated in their bed after police responded to the reports.

The main suspect in the murders is reportedly Edineuza's ex-boyfriend and father of Lívia.

Rumours indicate the potential motivation for the killing as Edinueza having "an affair" with another man, which could have provoked the suspect.

Edineuza ended her relationship with the man a year ago, but they have been in touch from time to time, according to reports.

But Brazilian authorities have given no indication yet about the possible motives for the murders.

The town of 75,000 people has been stunned by the gruesome murder.

Brazil's homicide rate is roughly 28 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants, making it rank in the top 20 most dangerous countries for homicide.

In 2021, a Brazilian mother and her partner were handed a sentence of 129 years for decapitating her 11-year-old son.

The attack happened outside of Brasilia, and the mother reportedly barbequed her son's body after the murder.

Speaking after the sentencing, the boy's father, Maycon Douglas Lima de Castro, told local media: "It's still too little, but at least they will never leave the jail again."
