138 proven number of murders & 172–300+ possible murders, all boys between 8 and 16 years old over a seven-year period.
Luis Garavito raped, tortured & murdered boys who were homeless, peasants, or orphaned. I never wrote anything like this before & I can’t explain my feeling while writing this. But I have to because some cases shows you how inhumanly brutal peoples mind can become, when they go through abuses & assaults during childhood. Some get over it, some lives forgetting the pain, but some end up losing their psychic balance.
Who, When, Where & WHY are the major points to cover in any crime cases. Here WHY is relevant than anything. WHY would would someone rape & kill homeless innocent boys…………
Stories says that Garavito’s was from Genova & his mother was a prostitute. His mother had been brutally abused by his father, a heavy alcoholic & would also abuse his siblings. Garavito’s father would force him to watch his mother having sexual intercourse with her clients, letting his mother’s clients sexually abuse Garavito. I don’t know how i managed to write this much. With a heavy heart, stories like these make me feel thankful for the life I am living right now.
At the age of 8 he ran away from home, & some how ended up on the streets of Colombia. One day he was offered food & shelter by a man. He trusted him & went along with him. But instead of help he was was sexually assaulted. Life & people made him suffer a lot & the story makes me unable to utter a word or something bad about him.
From 1992 boys in between the age of 8 to 16 started disappearing from the streets of Colombia. Since all of them were homeless & abandoned no body really noticed or no cases were filed. But later on during 1997 mass number of bodies (brutally abused & raped) were found. With evidences leading to Garavito, finally he got caught in 1999. With 138 proven cases Garavito’s sentences total 1,853 years and nine days in jail reduced to 22 years of life imprisonment in Colombia.
He is scheduled to be released in 2021.
