Satanist couple murder their pregnant maid to cash in on her life insurance
A Satanist couple have been arrested for the murder of their pregnant housekeeper (pictured above) so that they could cash in on her £50,000 life insurance policy.
The 41-year-old woman and 47-year-old man are said to have drowned Atyla Arruda Barbosa, 20, at sea last week. Her body was found on a beach in Mongagua, south-east Brazil.
It is alleged that the 47-year-old man who employed Atyla was the one who got her pregnant. The man lied to Atyla by telling her his wife was unable to conceive. After the woman got pregnant, the man killed her with his wife’s help to take her £50,000 life insurance policy.
Investigators have now arrested the couple after finding Satanist objects, including statues, a dagger and skulls, at their home.
Ruy de Matos, the police officer leading the investigation, said: “Our investigations indicate that the couple are involved in Satanism. They worship Lucifer.”
Atyla’s employers reportedly told authorities the suspects were her godparents. But the victim’s mum told police this was false and a murder investigation began.
The couple remain in jail while investigations continue.
