The couple is accused of qualified homicide and their daughter of denial of help for not reporting or notifying the emergency room.

The first investigations, according to Correio da Manha, reveal Jessica’s mother would have gone to the false nursemaid, Ana Cristina, to do a “witchcraft job” and maintain her relationship with the girl’s stepfather.

The debt, of 400 euros, would be behind the kidnapping of the girl, held by her captors for five days and beaten into a state of agony.

The police are also investigating the mother of the little girl who, according to local media, said during the kidnapping that she was in a vacation camp to prevent social services from taking custody of her.

Jessica’s situation had already been investigated by the Commission for the Protection of Children and Young People lusa that, however, closed the case at the beginning of June, considering that the girl was protected within the family.

Today, lawyers, officials and experts reflect on Portugal about the chain errors that ended with the death of Jessica.

“It’s something that shocks everyone” and requires “investigating the failures in the system so that they can be corrected,” admitted today the Minister of the Presidency, Mariana Vieira da Silva, number two of the Portuguese Government.
