Family members rushed him earlier in the day because he was having difficulties breathing and were shocked when they learned he had passed away. That shock was nothing compared with the news that Goncalves was pretty much alive inside the body bag.

He may have gained his freedom, but David Barajas will never recover from his gravest loss: that of his two young boys. The father's nightmare began in December 2012, when he was pushing an out-of-gas truck down a road near his home in Alvin, Texas, with the help of his sons, 12-year-old David and 11-year-old Caleb. A drunk driver crashed into Barajas' vehicle, killing both children. Shortly thereafter, the intoxicated driver, Jose Banda, was shot to death at the scene of the crash. Investigators pointed to 32-year-old Barajas as the shooter, claiming he'd sought revenge for the death of his children. So did he do it?
On Monday, Charles Vacca, a 39-year-old former soldier with a young family, was accidentally shot and killed by a 9-year-old girl he was teaching to fire an Uzi. Vacca was working as an instructor at a shooting range in Arizona when the accident happened and he was airlifted to a local hospital, but unfortunately died soon after.
What happened is tragic on so many levels. The whole ordeal was caught on video by the girl's parents. Part of the video has been released by the Mojave County Sheriff's Department. It appears that the accident happened because the Uzi was switched from single shot mode to automatic and, not surprisingly, the little girl lost control of the weapon.
Talk about medical malpractice! A woman in New Zealand died because her doctor forgot to inform her that she had breast cancer. Even though the woman had the life-threatening disease before and was considered a survivor, her general practitioner neglected to read his patient's medical history. Furthermore, he forgot to read the complete report from the radiologist and treated the woman for a shoulder fracture. She wasted precious time dealing with the erroneous diagnosis and when started chemotherapy it was too late.
Mikaeel Kular was only 3 years old when his 34-year-old mother, Rosdeep Adekoya, beat him to death in the family's Edinburgh, Scotland home ... and not only that, but then she hid his body and pretended that he went missing which set off a huge search for the child. There were emergency crews and hundreds of locals looking for him. When the child's body was found dumped in the woods, Adekoya admitted that it was she who had wrapped his little body in a duvet cover, stuffed him in a suitcase and put the suitcase under a bush in a wooded area.
As if the details I have given you aren't sick enough, there is more and it makes the whole awful situation even more terrible. To begin with, you won't believe why this mother of five killed this child and you won't believe the punishment she has been given for her heartless act.
A Filipino man went for a tooth extraction and paid for the procedure with his life. Instead of going to a dentist to have five teeth removed, 28-year-old Jerry Aguirre of the Negros Occidental province went to a faith healer to be treated.

Katherine Anne Jennings is the mother of two babies who died within 18 months of each other. In June of 2012, James Roberts Phillips was 4 months old when he died. In December 2013, Luke Stephen Phillips was 8 months old when he died. In both cases the babies died while co-sleeping with Jennings. No charges were ever filed against Jennings after the death of James, but in the case Luke, Jennings has been charged with involuntary manslaughter because co-sleeping was determined to be a contributing factor in the death of Luke.
This whole situation does not sit easy with me and I believe there is more to it than meets the eye because as far as I know co-sleeping is not against the law.
A twisted morgue employee from Hamilton County in Ohio has admitted to having sex with approximately 100 corpses in his care. Kenneth Douglas explained to authorities how he'd climb on top of the dead women and pull his pants down. He also blamed drug and alcohol abuse on his actions stating that when he did neither, he wouldn't touch the victims. The whole idea is so nauseating to me and the sick thing is his wife even alerted Douglas' bosses to what was going on and they did nothing about it!
