More than 20 federal and civilian police officers, as well as federal criminal experts, are involved in the re-enactment of Bruno and Dom's murder.

  • Prisoners and witnesses give their version of each "event."
  • The version is re-enacted with other people and objects and recorded by the experts, "as if it were a movie" of each "event."
  • Afterwards, each version will be confronted in an attempt to clear up the doubts and inconsistencies that arose between testimonies.

Atalaia do Norte (AM) — Gunfire again sounded loudly in the Itaquaí river on Wednesday afternoon, June 29, at the same point where, on June 5, the indigenous activist Bruno Pereira and the British journalist Dom Phillips were murdered. The shots in the water were part of the reconstitution of the crime, in which more than 20 federal and civil police officers and federal criminal experts have been working since Tuesday, June 28.

The re-enactment has been done by blocks of "events." Prisoners and witnesses give their version of each "event." The version is re-enacted with other people and objects and recorded by the experts, "as if it were a movie" of each "event", according to a federal police officer.

Then, each version will be confronted in an attempt to dispel the doubts and inconsistencies that arose between testimonies.

On Tuesday, June 28, the experts dealt with the burning of Bruno and Dom's documents and personal belongings and the concealment of the bodies. On Wednesday, June 29, the reconstruction had the participation of the main people accused of the execution of the crime, the fishermen and hunters Amarildo Oliveira, known as "Pelado", and Jeferson Lima, known as "Pelado da Dinha." They were taken from the cell at the police station of Atalaia do Norte, where they are being held under preventive custody orders issued by the courts, and taken to the river under police escort. At the end of the day, they were brought back to the police station cell.
