In the year 1926, when he was 55 years old and living life as a wanderer surviving on odd jobs, he committed his first alleged crime, he was accused of strangling and sodomizing a 27-year-old man, the body being found in the vicinity of the Campo de Marte Airport. After that, he committed two more attacks of the same nature, while having sex with his victims' still warm bodies.

At the time this ended up relating the size of his penis to the size of his bestiality. Murders continued to happen with Preto Amaral imprisoned, with this he turned out to be a legend; the angry population demanded he be lynched for this crimes, but Amaral died from tuberculosis before his trial, five months after his 1927 arrest.
