The 71-year-old man who had his house demolished by a businessman in October 2023 in Curvelo, in the Central region of Minas, died last Saturday (30). Valdevi Gomes, known as ‘Dois Conto’, lived in the district of Angueretá until her property was invaded and knocked down by two machines, sent by a stone businessman (remember the case at the end of the article)

The information about Valdevi Gomes’ death was confirmed by the elderly man’s family, who was laid to rest and buried over the weekend. The cause of death was not reported.

The demolition of Valdevi’s house and that of other residents of the district of Angueretá, in Curvelo, was the subject of an investigation by the Civil Police and was monitored by the Public Ministry of Minas Gerais (MPMG). A Itatiaia contacted both agencies and is awaiting feedback. The space remains open.

Remember the case

The land where the houses were located is on MG-420, close to kilometer 6, on the banks of the Paraopeba River. At the time, Valdevir said that, on October 11, 2023, four men arrived with two pieces of machinery and ordered him to leave the place. The region where the man lived has no cell phone signal, so the man alone witnessed his house and those of his family being demolished.

“Suddenly they arrived with the machine and told me to get out of the house or they were going to drop everything on me. Then I started taking a little bit of the things I realized and they started breaking everything. I’ve lived here for 20 years. They really broke everything. They even killed chickens because they fell on top of the chicken coop.”

The businessman was identified after the Military Police found, in an area close to the demolished houses, the machinery used for demolition. The machines were related to the company run by the man who then spoke to the military on the phone and reported that he had demanded the destruction of the houses because he thought the land was his — despite not having any court order.
