Teenage Boy Charged With Murder Of Brazilian Man In Battersea

Teenage Boy Charged With Murder Of Brazilian Man In Battersea A 16-year-old male is scheduled to appear in court on Friday after being charged in connection with the murder of a man in Battersea. Police were called to Charlotte Despard Avenue at 4.32pm on Saturday, where officers found a 46-year-old man suffering a head injury. The victim, named as Brazilian national Iderval da Silva, was taken to hospital but died on Tuesday. The teenager, who is from Wandsworth, was arrested in connection with the man’s death on Wednesday and charged on Thursday. He will appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court.

Around 33,000 years ago, a man was bludgeoned to death in a cave in Romania, a team of scientists has said. After examining fractures on a fossilized skull dating to the Upper Paleolithic, the team say they have "indisputable hard evidence" of violence among Upper Paleolithic Europeans at this time, indicating murder was part of these ancient human's lives.

The skull, known as Cioclovina calvaria, was uncovered by miners in a cave in South Transylvania in 1941. It was found alongside cave bear fossils and ancient stone tools. It is thought to be one of the earliest, well-preserved fossils of a modern human in Europe.

Paleolithic Murder Where Victim's Skull Was Bashed in 33,000 Years Ago Revealed by Scientists Researchers say skull found in a Transylvania cave is clear evidence of interpersonal violence among ancient Europeans.

Scientists clubbed and stoned fake skulls to get to the bottom of this 33 , 000 - year -old cold case. The locations of the injuries also revealed clues about the murderer . It appears that the murderer was face-to-face with the victim during the assault and likely a lefty, because the injury was on the skull ' s

A forensic analysis of a 33 , 000 - year -old skull finds a clear explanation for the mysterious pattern of Kranioti knew that if the skull was damaged long after Cioclovina man had died, the fractures would “This is solid evidence of interpersonal violence and violent death over 30, 000 years ago among the

Since its discovery, researchers have studied the skull, which belonged to an adult male, extensively. Katerina Harvati, from Germany's Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, told Newsweek: "He would have been a member of a hunter gatherer population, living under probably relatively harsh climatic conditions...He probably belonged to the Aurignacian culture, a stone tool industry associated with the earliest Upper Paleolithic modern humans across Europe."

He also suffered several skull fractures—two small ones at the front that were inflicted before death and another, large fracture on the right side of the skull. The timing of the latter fracture has been disputed, with researchers split over whether it happened before death or after.

The Upper Paleolithic (or Upper Palaeolithic , Late Stone Age) is the third and last subdivision of the Paleolithic or Old Stone Age. Very broadly, it dates to between 50, 000 and 10, 000 years ago

Stone age murder : Fresh analysis of a 33 , 000 - year -old skull found in Transylvania belongs to a man who 'died a violent death' and was hit around the The onset of the Paleolithic Period has traditionally coincided with the first evidence of tool construction and use by Homo some 2.58 million years ago

In a study published in PLOS One, the trauma has been reassessed using forensic science and experimental simulations, allowing scientists to work out how and when the injury was inflicted. Using synthetic models of the skull, the team threw it from heights and hit it with rocks and bats.

Results showed there were two injuries that took place before or at the time of death. One fracture at the base of the skull, and another at the right side of the skull—the latter of which was inflicted with a bat-like object. Positioning indicates the fracture on the right of the skull was inflicted in a face-to-face confrontation, with the perpetrator striking the victim with the bat either in the left hand, or being held by both hands. The injuries did not heal, suggesting the blows were fatal.

The team also notes that only the skull was recovered from the cave. It is possible that more bodily injuries were sustained in the attack and these could also have contributed to the man's death.

Simulations show left-handed killer The fossilized skull of the paleolithic adult man was found by miners digging for phosphate. Two decades of research have revealed that 60 per cent of the world’ s coffee species face extinction

Neanderthal extinction began around 40, 000 years ago in the Paleolithic Europe, after anatomically modern humans had reached the continent.

Concluding, researchers say the injuries sustained do not fit with post-mortem damage, a fall or accidental injury: "Rather, they were sustained from multiple blows to the head with a club-like instrument, or from a combination of a fall and a blow to the head," they wrote.

"The lack of any signs of healing associated with these fractures indicates that the Cioclovina individual did not survive these lesions. It is not clear whether the [fracture] alone could have caused his death. However, a depressed fracture of the extent and magnitude…would have caused fatal brain injuries resulting in a quick demise.

"The location of this lesion suggests that it was inflicted by a blow from a likely left-handed perpetrator facing the victim. This may have been a result of a one to one conflict or murder by one or more perpetrators. Severe interpersonal conflict leading to death is therefore the hypothesis that is best supported by our findings."

The point at which the man was killed was a period of intense technological innovation, cultural complexity and increased symbolic behavior—for example, the Middle to Upper Paleolithic is considered the point where religion emerged. Understanding social relationships at this time is important in understanding how societies would later emerge.

"Upper Paleolithic modern humans are often described in terms of innovation, art, and competitive cultural advantage when compared, for example, too Neanderthals," Harvati said. "We show that they were also capable of violence and murder, and thus also showed the darker sides of human nature."
