WTF??? Man And His Jump-Off Get Popped For Keeping His Wife Locked Up In The Basement For Years

- By Bossip Staff

Sometimes the only thing worse than these dirty dogs are the dirty broads who allow them to do the sh*t they do.

A man has been arrested for allegedly keeping his wife locked for eight years in the dark, dank cellar of their home in southeastern Brazil, police said Thursday.

Joao Batista Groppo, 64, was arrested after his wife of 40 years, Sebastiana, was found confined in a “filthy, dark” cellar, said police inspector Jaqueline Barcelos Coutinho.

Groppo’s girlfriend, Maria Furquim, was arrested as an accomplice by police in Sorocaba, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Sao Paulo, the inspector said.

Initially, Groppo told police that he had locked his spouse up for 16 years. He later revised the time period to eight years, which their son confirmed, Coutinho said in a telephone interview.

The son told her he knew what his father was doing but was unable to persuade him to stop, Coutinho said, adding that the son “may face charges of failing to come to the aid of someone in need.” She declined to identify him.

Groppo, who described himself as a retired industrial consultant, said he locked up his 64-year-old wife beginning in 2003 because she is mentally ill and aggressive, the inspector said.

“He told us that locking her up was the only way he could think of to prevent her from wandering off and getting lost,” Coutinho said. “She does have psychiatric problems but she is definitely not an aggressive person.”

Coutinho added that Groppo claimed he took his wife to visit a psychiatrist once a month.

Police were tipped off to the situation by an anonymous telephone call and arrested Groppo on Wednesday, the inspector said.

Her own son didn’t look out??? Poor lady.
