Description.. The head of Diogo Alves (1810-1841), one of the most famous portuguese serial-killers and one of the last criminals to be sentenced to death in Po

The head of Diogo Alves (1810-1841), one of the most famous portuguese serial-killers and one of the last criminals to be sentenced to death in Portugal. He would kill his victims by attacking them at the top of the Águas Livres Aqueduct, in Lisbon, and throwing them off of it - a 65m (213 feet) fall to their death.

Sources from 1837 say he killed more than 70 people.

Initially seen as a rather strange suicide spree, Alves method was given away when he killed 4 people from the same family.

He was hung and his head was kept in formol so his condition (his “evil nature") could be studied.

"We suspected nothing when the first three members of the family committed suicide within the space of three days, but when on the forth day the 1 year old baby jumped off the same cliff... Well, let's just say some of us started getting a little suspicious."

He was bringing very confusing and unrelated attention to the cop's arms in the picture, which I will admit do somehow look very out of place.

If you thought a son commited suicide, then both the parents commited suicide. You could easily reason that as they were just depressed as **** at losing their kid.

So you're named Timpanist Alves? I wouldn't recommend to reveal your identity on the internet.

That's Brazilian Portuguese sir. A correct Portuguese gentleman would say:

The term "water" refers specifically to H2O. If it was a general term for liquid and a doctor says you need to drink more water, he doesn't mean antifreeze.

It's a genetic thing. It isn't down syndrome like the one poster implied, some other genetic disorder.
