Raiony was found with abdominal stab wounds face down and with her arms tied in her own house on Rua 16 in in the Alvorada 2 neighborhood of western Manaus.

Raiony was a civil servant. Her suspected killer is a neighbour who owed her money and had made death threats to her.

Public official Raiony Batalha, 40, was murdered with a stab in the abdomen at dawn today, inside her own home, on Rua 16 in the Alvorada 2 district, west of Manaus. The main suspect, according to the Civil Police (PC), is a neighbor identified as Maria Aparecida, who owed the victim a thousand reais.

The police officer of the 10th Community Interactive Company (Cicom), Cleomir Brígido, said that Raiony's aunt came to her house yesterday morning, but she did not respond. Intrigued, she decided to call a neighbor, who had to jump over the wall of the house to enter the residence. At the scene, they found Raiony dead, face down and with her arms tied. The knife used in the crime was found inside a toilet, wrapped in a napkin.

According to the delegate of the 10th Integrated Police District (Dip), Íris Coelho, family members reported that a neighbor named Maria Aparecida had argued with Raiony, and that she had already threatened her with death several times.
