Eight suspects linked to Dom Phillips and Bruno Pereira deaths


Eight people are now suspects in the murders of British journalist Dom Phillips and indigenous expert Bruno Pereira, police say. Three suspects have already been arrested. But five more people who allegedly helped hide their bodies have now been identified, police told reporters. Mr Phillips and Mr Pereira went missing while on a reporting trip in the remote Javari Valley in Brazil’s far west on 5 June. Their bodies were identified on Friday, after one of the suspects in custody – Amarildo da Costa de Oliveira – reportedly confessed to burying their remains and led police to a spot deep in the rainforest where their remains were found. His brother, Oseney da Costa de Oliveira, was also arrested, but denies any involvement.(BBC)…[+]
