Gisberta, brasilian imigrant, transexual, HIV positive, having drug problems, sex-worker and homeless, was found dead on the 22th of February inside a pit 10 metres deep, in an unfinished building in Porto, the second biggest portuguese city. The crime was confessed by a group of 14 boys, between 10 and 16 years old. They turtured and raped her for days. Most of the boys come from a child protection institution belonging to the Catholic Church although financed by the state.
