Dad Of Daughter Killed By Ex After Posting Bikini Snaps Begs For Return Of Body

The father of a woman who was allegedly murdered and dismembered by her spurned drug-lord lover has begged for her body to be returned.

Bianca Lourenco, 24, vanished from Kelson’s favela in Brazil, having posted a racy bikini-clad selfie on Instagram.

Following a breakup, she shared the snap with the caption: If I were you, I would certainly hate me, too."

According to local media, police are investigating the case after some of her body parts were found in the area.

Relatives of the young woman have accused her ex, who has been named as Dalton Vieira Santana, of murdering her after she dumped him.

It is understood Bianca and her ex had been together for over a year before he allegedly became violent towards her.

The suspected drug-lord has been accused of kidnapping his ex as he refused to accept the relationship being over.

One acquaintance, who wished to remain anonymous, told local media: "This guy followed her to the bus station armed to stop her from travelling.

“He closed Avenida Brasil (a main thoroughfare in Rio de Janeiro) to kidnap her, but he didn't pull it off.

"He didn't in any way accept the end of their relationship."

Lourenco went to her relatives' house in the neighbouring municipality of Nova Iguacu and was reportedly snatched from a barbecue she was at with friends on 3rd January.

According to witnesses, Lourenco was killed either by Santana or at his behest in the favela. Some reports suggested the drug lord then dismembered the victim and later disposed of her body parts in Guanabara Bay.

In an interview with local media, the victim's father, who has not been named, told of how he came face-to-face with his daughter's suspected killer to get her body back.

"I asked him to help me if he could," he said. "If it had happened, if he could return my daughter's body, if he could hand her over to me any way he could, he could at least take away a father's pain so I can at least bury my daughter."

Lourenco's family originally feared involving the police, but have since reported the disappearance.

He told local media: "The suspect told everyone he killed her. He didn't tell me, but he told others. He said he'd put her in a car and he'd sent her away. Lies. She'd have been here at home a long time ago if that were true."
