This respectable street was the set of an horrific crime in 1892: Dr Urbino de Freitas, a distinguisehd lecturer in the medical school,was accused of poisoning his nephew, nieces and mother in law (and apparently his brothers in law as well) so that his wife would become the sole heir of her father's fortune. The old lady and the two little girls survived, but the death of the little boy and the circunstances of the case shocked the public opinion of the time. Since the evidences of the case were fairly inconclusive, Dr. Urbino de Freitas had the know-how to know which poisons left no traits on an autopsy, the veredict of his trial was an ambiguous "attempted murder".
