‘Handsome’ Brazilian Serial Killer Admits To Killing As Many As 41
Gomes da Rocha allegedly murdered 39 people, but he says it may be as many as 41.
The one-time security guard began killing at age 22, using his motorcycle to roam the streets of Goiânia and choosing his victims before shooting them dead. He was arrested when police linked a gun in his home to the one used in the killings.
He preyed upon homosexuals, homeless people and women, even a 14-year-old girl.
The murderer claims he compulsively killed in order to quell a “great anger” within himself. Gomes de Rocha maintains his propensity toward violence is the result of sexual abuse when he was just 11 years old.
He told press,
If I have a disease, I’d like to know what it is, and also if there is a cure. I’d like to ask for forgiveness, but I think it’s too difficult to ask for forgiveness right now.
Gomes da Rocha said he regrets the killings, and he maintains he can remember every single victim’s face in the order in which he slayed them.
Residents of Goiânia are happy to have the killer off the streets, no matter how handsome his face may be.
