Rafaela Thompson (Heliu Pereira Dantas)

Rafaela's body was found partly naked on Av. Antonio Quintino Gomes on 11th April. She seemed to have been strangled with a piece of cloth.

According to the police, Rafael had gone out with a man at around 11:30 pm on the 10th in order to buy a bottle of liquor.

She had been known locally since she appeared in the film "O que há por tras?" ("What's behind?") produced in 2009 by local social communication students.
