Photography of beaten up Leonor Cipriano can be a Forgery

Leonor Cipriano’s Images are going to be evaluated trough technical computer-assisted image analysis

Photos were probably Forged

The date of the files that are in the process which accuses five elements of the Judiciary Police is of May of 2005, when the alleged aggression took place in October of 2004

Three accused inspectors of the Judiciary Police of torture when they were questioning Leonor Cipriano - condemned by the murder of the daughter - are going to ask an expert evaluation to the photographies that serve as element of proof for the accusation.
The images that show Leonor with the black eyes [panda eyes*] are in a CD and the files have the date of the 9th of May of 2005 - when the alleged aggression would have taken place a year before, in 15th of October of 2004.

According to the accusation, after the interrogation, Leonor was taken by the inspectors to the health centre of Odemira. The police officers say that she threw herself down the staircases, in an attempt to commit suicide.

24horas knows that as soon Leonor Cipriano reached the penitentiary, the director ordered that photos were taken to Cipriano - those were passed to floppy disks and, subsequently, for a CD handed to the Public Ministry.

“I don’t understand how this date appears in the files. I want this to be thoroughly explained. Because the images can have been forged”, says to 24horas the lawyer of three inspectors, Pragal Colaço. “I am going to ask an expert evaluation trough technical computer-assisted image analysis. Even because, the original chip of the photographies isn’t available”.

Accused Inspectors

The inspectors Leonel Marques, Paulo Pereira Cristóvão and Paulo Marques Bom are accused of, on the 14th of October, to have tortured Leonor during an interrogation in the Judiciary Police headquarters of Portimão.
The three were in the Central Direction of Combat Against Banditism, in Lisbon, and had been called to the Algarve to help in the investigation of the disappearance of the eight year old girl Joana - the mysteriously lost girl of the village of Figueira (Portimão).

The coordinator Gonçalo Amaral - who also investigated the case Maddie - is accused in this process of a crime of false testimony and falsification of a document. And the inspector António Cardoso, of a crime of falsification.

Five accused inspectors of the Judiciary Police were pronounced for judgement in last February. António Pragal Colaço, accused the judge, Ana Lúcia Cruz, of having taken the decision of bringing the Judiciary Officers to judgement before the debate. The lawyer considers this process to be damaged by "political" circumstances.

João Grade, Leonor Cipriano’s Lawyer, believes that the decision is going to influence the revision of the process of judgement of Leonor. In April, the lawyer was detained by the GNR in the possession of synthetic drugs; he was arrested carrying 45 doses of amphetamines and a quarter of a tablet of ecstasy while visiting the prison. The lawyer alleged that the suitcase was of a recluse to whom he was doing a favour and that he didn’t know the contents.

*Panda Eyes or Racoon Eyes

A black eye (periorbital hematoma) is bruising around the eye commonly due to an injury to the face rather than an eye injury. The name is given due to the color of bruising.

When bilateral, it is also known as raccoon eyes.

Most black eye injuries are minor and will heal themselves in about one week. Trauma near the eyebrow or places not directly on the eye may make the eyelid go black.

The dramatic appearance (discolouration and swelling) does not necessarily indicate a serious injury. The fatty tissue along with the lack of muscle around the eye socket allows a potential space for blood accumulation with relatively minor injury. As this blood is reabsorbed, various pigments are released similar to a bruise, lending itself to the extreme outward appearance. Unless there is actual trauma to the eye itself, medical attention is generally not needed.

Raccoon eyes (also known, especially in the UK, as panda eyes) or periorbital bruising is a sign of basal skull fracture. It results from blood from skull fracture tracking down into the soft tissue around the eye.

Raccoon eyes may also be a sign of disseminated neuroblastoma.

  1. For someone who has killed and abused her own daughter how hard would it be to throw herself down some stairs to either try and take her own life or to blame the Police Officers? In My Opinion , not hard at all.

    That woman never showed any remorse for Joana, her brother, Joana's Uncle, even said to the inspectors: 'I didn't had sex with her [with Joana], I just killed her' as if that was an excuse to the horrifying action that the Cipriano family and he did to that little girl.

    Leonor Cipriano and her brother, João are both psychopaths, no remorse, no empathy with the girl nor with the other children, nor with the community they lived in. They were an extremely dysfunctional family, and everything ended in a tragic case of Infanticide.

    Psychopaths, how else would they carve a human being, a child?
