I never imagined I had an enemy. I never imagined that… kidnapping was going to happen within my family. On August 29, 1997, a Friday, the boy Ives Ota, 8 years old, was inside his house, located in the East zone of São Paulo, Brazil, studying with a cousin when an armed man entered the place with a single goal: kidnap Ives. what was not expected it was that the boy would never be found alive again. Ives Yoshiaki Ota was born in São Paulo, on June 2, 1989, he was the son of Masataka Ota and Keiko Ota. He was described as a loving and docile boy, very attached to his parents. Ives’ father was a pioneer in opening the famous $1.99 stores, which became very popular in São Paulo in the late 1990s. The businessman opened several stores with unified prices, causing it to quickly gain great popularity among the citizens of greater São Paulo. The child’s kidnappers, who were military police, they worked as security in the stores in Masataka. By following the intense movements of trade, came to believe that the profits obtained were too tall and saw an opportunity to extort the entrepreneur kidnapping your youngest son and demanding a large amount of money for the ransom. On the day of the kidnapping, Ives’ parents left to sort out some problems while the boy stayed at home with a cousin and babysitter. At a given time, the bell rang and at the door there was a motorcycle courier with a bouquet of flowers asking about Masataka’s niece, Margareth, to whom the flowers were supposed to be destined. In view of the information that the girl was not at the location, the motoboy got the nanny to open the gate so he could leave the bouquet, and surprised her by faking a robbery. Asked about safes and other things of value in the house that might exist in the house, he locked her up in the basement of the house and took Ives away at the time of the escape. When they got home, Keiko and Masataka Ota realized that there was an intense movement of people and police vehicles near their residence. As they approached, the couple’s eldest daughter, Vanessa, told her parents that her brother had been kidnapped. The couple claims they didn’t instantly understand what was happening and expected a call from the police at any time saying their son was found. I was the pioneer of opening the first store in São Paulo for $1.99 which was a single price and it was a very big success and where did I transform… ah… all my stores in 45 days at one price. That’s right… the three who worked na, in my store, not just in my store and as they were military police, they… they worked for other merchants. And they saw that big movement all day, right? And they thought I was a millionaire. On August 29, I left… me and my wife, we leave early for an importing company and something hit me inside my heart and I used to say: “hey, I feel like leaving”. So that was about 4 pm, 4 pm… I called my wife and said: “look, yeah… we better go than menI’m not feeling well.” At 7:15 pm or so, I’m seeing some vehicles, right? Near my house. And when we were getting home I saw the street bustling, it’s… the police siren on. Ives’s puppy on the loose. The neighbor screaming. I looked at my husband and said, “Wow, yeah… what’s going on with the neighbor?” Then came my daughter, Vanessa And he said to me like this: “Mommy took Ives”. On the same day, the Anti-Kidnapping Police Station was called and sent a team specialized in negotiation to the residence to start the usual police procedures in cases of kidnapping. That way, even without much information, the forensic team was called to pay attention to the possible location of a child somewhere in the city. The kidnappers’ first contact veio somente no dia seguinte, August 30, in which they demanded an amount of R$ 800,000.00 (eight hundred thousand reais) as a ransom. The police, then, outlined with the family the procedures to be carried out for the negotiation to take place. For this, it was extremely necessary that the kidnappers on the next call that Ives was alive. So done, three days after the first phone call, there was a new contact in which Ives’ parents they questioned the kidnappers about events that only family members would know about. However, although the answers describe facts that the child would know how to answer, statements were deviated from the original questions, which led the police to realize the gravity of the situation, since the answers they did not delineate the normal parameters of an extortion by kidnapping. They then started to prepare for the worst: the possibility of not finding the boy alive again. A caller ID was installed in the family’s residence giving the opportunity to identify one of the numbers used to demand the ransom, coming to realize that it came from a public telephone in the region of Vila Guarani, south-central zone of the capital of São Paulo, right next to the place where the boy had been kidnapped. Thus, an operation was set up close to the telephone from which the calls came, hoping that the kidnapper incur the error of using again the same device or even another one nearby. Once the entire procedure has been set up, when ringing the Ota’s house, the policeman who was in the family’s residence called those responsible by the operation to enter the number. In this way, they were successful in locating the public telephone coming from the call and arrest Silvio da Costa Batista. The man was making the call on the pay phone, mounted on a motorcycle and tried to react when he noticed the presence of the police, but was quickly contained by the team. At the police station, it was found that Silvio was a false name, he was later identified as Adelino Donizete Esteves. The suspect has been compared to the sketch made on the day of Ives’ disappearance, noting that Adelino was extremely similar to the kidnapper. Outlined the situation, the officers contacted Ives’ nanny who went to the police station and immediately recognized him as the author of the kidnapping. It was also found that Adelino was wanted for a series of other crimes. From now on, the police began to pressure Adelino to reveal the whereabouts of Ives, and at this moment when he decided to collaborate with the investigations, confirming, first, who would have kidnapped the child, but who had no knowledge of his whereabouts, because its function was only to catch Ives and take it to the military police Sérgio Eduardo Pereira and Paulo de Tarso Dantas, who also worked as security in Ives’s father’s stores. The Police of the Anti-Kidnapping Precinct went to meet the Military Police Sergio Eduardo Pereira, in the military police battalion, and he denied any participation in the crime, claiming not to know Silvio, the name used by Adelino. In view of the Military Police’s denial, the civil police took Sergio to the vehicle and the moment he saw Adelino in the back seat, showed intense nervousness and, tearing, told the officers they could go to his home to see if the child was there. Likewise, Military Police Officer Paulo de Tarso, in conversation with the civil police, exhibited strange behavior, as excessive sweating and showed a greater concern in affirming that he had an alibi than in denying the commission of the crime that was imputed to him. While a part of the police team interrogated the suspected military police, another went to Adelino’s house to conduct searches and gather possible information on Ives’ whereabouts, however, initially nothing was found at the site. Also, no traces of the child were found in the home of the other two suspects. The police suspected that it might exist a fourth kidnapper in charge of Ives’ captivity. Being cautious and due to information from neighbors that Silvio, ie Adelino, he would have arrived home on Friday, the 29th, with a “Japanese” boy, the police decided to carry out a new search of his residence, hoping to find any trace that could confirm Ives’ presence there. During this new search, the police decided to check a place that had not entered the last search for issues of respect for the family: the motoboy’s daughter’s room. Upon entering the room, the police noticed that there was a drop in the ground, right below the child’s crib, that was not compatible with the surroundings. Suspicious, the police decided to examine the patch with tools, the patch on the floor opened easily, but the surroundings were harder, even so the police continued to dig until the moment a child’s elbow appeared in the rubble. Experts sifted the soil from the site and found the cartridge for a 9mm bullet. A type of weapon used only by the armed forces. The injuries to the child’s body also indicated that the shot was fired at close range and that at the moment of death, Ives was immobile. Probably sedated, as there was no defensive wound of any kind. Subsequently, the report of the IML (Institute of Legal Medicine) found that the child had actually been sedated. Found Ives’ lifeless body, by questioning Adelino again about the dynamics of crime, he was confused and told the police that on the day of the kidnapping, while traveling with Ives, met Military Police Officer Paulo de Tarso on the way and the boy recognized him as his father’s guard. According to the motoboy, later that day, Paulo de Tarsus went to his house, where he was with the boy and ordered him to execute the child, stating that it was the only solution for them not to be found, given the fact that Ives recognized him as Masataka’s security guard. So, right now, established the fate of Ives. They then decided to kill the child and bury the body in Adelino’s own house until investigations were reduced. they drugged Ives, offering you a chocolate milk and, after he was unconscious, they put the child in a shallow grave and fired two fatal shots in the boy’s face. The kidnappers are believed to have used a silencer, because neighbors claimed not to hear gunfire and they even stated that Paulo de Tarso Dantas frequented Adelino’s house, or Silvio, as he often said. Another witness said he overheard a conversation between the two military police, Paulo de Tarso and Sérgio Eduardo, in addition to the motoboy. In the conversation, Sérgio Eduardo would have said that his participation in the crime would only be in surveillance and that he just wanted enough money to buy a car. Civil police discovered that Paulo de Tarso had a video store at the time and that he recurrently watched the movie “Ransom”, in which a child is kidnapped by a police officer who was only caught because she survived and recognized him. Police believe that the film encouraged the Military Police to commit the crime. Ives’ parents, in September 1997, founded the “Peace and Justice Ives Ota” movement, a non-governmental organization whose aim is to promote peace and human rights. The entity carries out a series of social actions as weekly lectures at your headquarters, organizes activities in public schools, in addition to activities related to sport, to the re-education of people and restructuring of families. The trial took place in 1998 where the Judge of the 17th Criminal Court of São Paulo condemned the motoboy and the two police officers involved. O Juiz entendeu que o PM Paulo de Tarso was the mastermind of the crime, while Adelino, the motorcycle courier, was responsible for kidnapping Ives and take him into captivity. Thus, the two military police were convicted to 43 years and 02 months in prison for extortion through kidnapping resulting in death and corpse concealment. Adelino, in turn, was sentenced to 45 years and 06 months in prison for extortion through kidnapping resulting in death, corpse concealment and also for ideological falsity and false identity. Unfortunately, the convicts have been in a semi-open regime since 2005. During his time in prison, the two military police officers graduated as Law Graduates and Masataka Ota was, unbelievably invited to deliver the diploma to your son’s kidnappers. The man declined the invitation, of course. A year after Ives’ death, his sister, Ises, was born. In 1999 the Ives Ota square was inaugurated, in the village of Carrão, São Paulo, place where Ives was kidnapped. Keiko and Masataka Ota joined the PSB (Brazilian Socialist Party) political party. In 2017 Keiko, Federal Deputy, was responsible for creating the Law 13.437/17 establishing, on the 30th of August, the National Day of Forgiveness in honor of son Ives Ota and to all relatives who seek justice. Also in 2017, the Ives Ota park was inaugurated, in Sorocaba – São Paulo. In one of his school essays, Ives once wrote: “We must respect all people without distinction of color and race. everyone needs a lot of love and just giving love, affection and respect is that we can demand the same for ourselves. We must be friends with people, animals and nature”. Ives was not only a son to me. he was a great teacher who came to teach me to love, respect and forgive. So it was the first… first photo i found when he “talked” about my son’s death. And that was the image on my shirt that became famous around the world, right? Look I know that, I know that everything I’m doing… that I’m doing for Ives… one day when I die. I’m sure Ives will have open arms for me. And he’s going to hug me and say: “Dad… our mission is accomplished”. I am proud to say that I am the father of Ives Ota. Well, this was today’s video. Thank you so much for everyone’s affection and attention and as always, see you in the comments. Until later!
