The Military Brigade found at dawn on Sunday (12) the body of a 38-year-old [trans woman] in the Redenção Park, in central Porto Alegre. According to Deputy Filipe Bringhenti, the victim was murdered with a blow to the head.

According to police, no one has been arrested. The weapon used in the crime was not found. According to the deputy responsible for the case no one was seen approaching or leaving the crime scene, but it is possible that the murder was committed by a group of skinheads.

"We have no evidence to prove anything. But the history of the neighborhood leads us to believe it could have been a group of skinheads," said Deputy Filipe Bringhenti.
