2 Brazilian Teens Arrested In Gay Murder: “He Wanted To Kiss Me, I Wanted To Kill Him”

In Brazil, two teenagers have been arrested for the murder of 20-year-old student Lawrence Corrêa Biancão. The two boys, both 15, were arrested Tuesday and confessed to the crime, citing homophobia and robbery as their motivation.

“He wanted to kiss me and I wanted to kill him,” one of the teens told Campo Grande News.

One of the boys met the victim two weeks prior to the murder when Biancão allegedly made a pass at him. They talked and exchanged numbers, then, police report, the teen spoke with a friend with whom he agreed to meet and kill Biancão, steal his car and escape to another state.

The two teens went for a drive with Biancão on the morning of Sunday, December 9, during which they reportedly masturbated. Before saying their goodbyes, the boy sitting behind Biancão strangled him with his seat belt.

Detective Wellington Oliveira said the boys admitted to trying to throw the victim’s body out of the car, but finding the corpse too heavy and lacking an ideal location, they left the crime scene with the victim’s cell phone, documents, car keys and car stereo.

Police found the stolen items at the home of one of the assailants, while Biancão’s body was discovered early Sunday afternoon. He had been out with friends on Saturday night, who identified the teen Biancão arranged to meet.

After being arrested, one of the teens told Oliveira, “For me, gays are vermin.”

Violence against LGBT people in Brazil has been steadily increasing with advocacy group Grupo Gay da Bahía reporting 272 murders in 2011, six times more than in 2010. According to Professor Luiz Mott, an anthropologist at the Federal University of Bahia and founder of the GGB, Brazil has the largest number of anti-gay murders in the world.

    They MASTURBATED first and THEN killed him? They call gays “vermin” but jerk off just before committing murder? Sick little bastards. Ugh.

    I was going to say something about sex with minors but apparently in Brazil the age of consent regardless of gender and orientation is 14

    That takes practice. I think the cops better look into similar unsolved murders of gay men.
