Raíssa was a “sweet, docile child”, shy and afraid of strangers. She and her family lived in Anhanguera, a suburb of São Paulo.
Raíssa was attending a charity event with her family when a 12-year-old boy, a schoolmate who lived on her street, lured her away from her family. Her body was found in the woods, tied to a tree; she had been raped and strangled. The boy was convicted of murder and rape; due to his age, he will serve three years in a juvenile prison.
