A THIRTEEN YEAR old girl, who was sexually abused for over four years by her father, has died giving birth to his child, police in Brazil claim. School girl, Luana Ketlen, had been allegedly raped by Tome Faba, 36, since the age of nine. No one in her family suspected she was being abused. The evil dad went on the run shortly after his daughter?s death on December 11. He was captured a week later hiding out in Coari city shortly after police issued a wanted poster. The family lived on the outskirts of the Amazon city. He appeared in court on Friday (27) charged with child abuse and manslaughter. The slightly-built teen was seven months pregnant when she was rushed to Coari regional hospital suffering from severe pains. Doctors diagnosed her with acute anaemia and decided to induce labour. She gave birth to a premature baby boy who miraculously survived. But following delivery, the girl?s health took a turn for the worse and test results found she was suffering from multiple complications including cirrhosis of the liver, pleural effusion (excess water on the lungs) and low blood pressure. The tragic adolescent died while being airlifted to a specialist hospital in Manaus, the Amazonas state capital, some 225miles away (363km).

Police chief José Barradas said: ‘The teenager lived with her parents in a rural area outside the city. She did not realise, until two months ago when she began to feel pains in her abdomen, that she was five months pregnant.

‘Luana claimed she was ordered to go fishing with her father and was allegedly raped by him while there.’

Nobody in her family knew about Luana’s abuse until her body started to change and relatives realised that she was pregnant.

Her aunt managed to persuade her to tell her who had raped her, but the girl’s mother refused to believe it.

Luana said that her father had threatened to kill her if she reported what had happened.
