According to the police, six men, among them Roberta's ex boyfriend Tata (Edmar Antunes de Jesus), surprised Roberta at home and tortured her in order to get money that she and Tata had gained from selling a house. After three hours of using extreme forms of torture, the men killed Roberta. While the five other men were arrested, Tata was still fugitive.
