    Prosecutors: Illegal alien raped, murdered his own mother in Florida

    On Wednesday, prosecutors told a Broward County courtroom that Gerard Lopes Belmonte's disturbing motive for killing his adoptive mother two years ago, was to cover up the fact that he had just raped her.

    DNA tests showed Lopes' semen was found inside his 43-year-old mother's body, said Assistant State Attorney Adriana Alcalde.

    On July 20, 2011, the badly beaten body of Natalie Belmonte was found in a marsh near the Pembroke Pines home she shared with her son.
    Lopes reported his mother missing three days earlier.

    However, the night before Belmonte's disappearance, video footage from a neighbor’s security camera shows Belmonte and Lopes, leaving together (apparently to attend a family event), then returning home around 2:48 a.m. Shortly thereafter, Lopes can be seen dragging a large bag across the driveway and placing it into the trunk of Belmonte's Lexus.

    That car would later be found next to a dumpster, where Lopes reportedly discarded bloody sheets from his mother's bed, according to court documents.

    The Broward/Palm Beach New Times reported:

    Lopes had previously been charged with stealing $20,000 in jewelry from his mother.
    Lopes, who has denied killing his mother, has been charged with first-degree murder and is currently being held at the Broward County Jail on an immigration detainer.

    Lopes, now 23-years-old, was reportedly brought here illegally from South America when he was a small boy.

    Fort Lauderdale Man Raped his Mother Before Killing Her, Say Prosecutors

    Gerard Lopes Belmonte raped his mother before killing her.That's what prosecutors in his case are alleging, citing DNA tests that reveal that Belmonte's semen was found in his mother, Natalie Belmonte's, body.

    Gerard was arrested and charged with murdering his mother two years ago.

    But it wasn't until a court hearing on Wednesday that it was revealed that he killed Natalie to cover up having raped her.

    According to the report, Assistant State Attorney Adriana Alcalde says that this was the clear reason why Belmonte murdered his mother.

    Natalie, who was Gerard's adoptive mother and first cousin, had vanished following a party she and Gerard attended in Pembroke Pines in July 2011.

    The following morning, he told family members that Natalie had disappeared. Police eventually found that her purse, cell phone, and keys were still in the house.

    Natalie's decomposing body was discovered three days later. She had been dumped in a wooded area.

    Eventually, investigators were able to find witnesses who reported seeing blood-stained sheets being carried away by someone from a dumpster.

    Police soon found surveillance footage of Belmonte putting Natalie's body in the trunk of her Lexus.

    Belmonte was arrested and charged for her murder, as well as charged for robbing her of thousands of dollars' worth of jewelry.

    Gerard Belmonte has a sketchy past, as well as mental-health issues. Shortly before the crime, he had been in jail for an unrelated incident. According to one report, he had told his fellow Broward County Jail inmates he had fantasies of killing his mother.

    On Wednesday, Belmonte's defense argued that he and Natalie had a consensual sexual relationship.

    "We have 7,000 text messages between the two of them, and there is not one iota of evidence that supports the defense's contention that this was a consensual sexual relationship," prosecutors told Broward Circuit Judge Matthew Destry. "The idea that he would now besmirch his mother's name is offensive."

    But Natalie's sister, Michaela Teixeira, who took the stand for the prosecution, testified that the defense's argument was false.
    "There's absolutely no way she had a consensual sexual relationship with her son," she said during a tearful testimony.

    The judge ruled that the DNA evidence found by investigators would be allowed in the trial.

    Unfortunately, Gerard Lopes Belmonte is probably the product of several centuries of rape.
