Girl, 12, kills dad for fame after being inspired by murder 20 years ago

A young girl has chillingly confessed to the alleged murder of her father in a bid to gain fame, police have said.

The 12-year-old, along with her 13-year-old friend, said she killed her cop dad after being inspired by the gruesome murder of Red Baron from 20 years ago.

The schoolgirl was allegedly inspired by Suzane Louise von Richthofen, a descendant of the German WW1 flying ace, who killed her wealthy parents in Sao Paulo in Brazil in 2002

Officers investigating the murder of 46-year-old Neife Luiz Werlang in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina arrested the two girls in connection with his death.

Local media has claimed that the girls carried out the alleged murder because they wanted to become famous like Suzane Louise von Richthofen.

The teenagers reportedly confessed to the crime, and said that they were inspired by Suzane's story, perceiving her as a victim of society, and believed they would become as famous as her.

Suzane von Richthofen was convicted of murdering Manfred Albert von Richthofen and Marisia von Richthofen, and her boyfriend Daniel Cravinhos and his brother Cristian Cravinhos were also convicted.

The case became a public sensation and has since been the subject of two films both of which change Suzanne's motive for committing the murder.

In one, she does it to inherit her father's fortune, and in another after being forced to by her pot-smoking boyfriend.

According to ND+ the two girls, who have not been named, had also intended to kill the victim's wife, but were unable to do so.

Suzanne von Richthofen has planned the murder of her parents for months.

She disconnected the alarm system at the house, then let in her boyfriend and his brother and waited downstairs whilst they went upstairs and killed her sleeping parents.

Suzanne was alleged to be a distant relative of the World War One German fighter ace Manfred von Richthofen, known as "The Red Baron", who has been estimated to have racked up over 80 victories in his career before being killed in a dogfight in 1918.

When being arrested, the two teenagers are alleged to have not shown any regret, asking if they would become famous like the Richthofens.
