Katlyn's body was found rotting in a stream early on the morning of Sunday 1st September.

In the early morning of Sunday (01), the 5th BPM Military Police was called to investigate an anonymous report of a corpse found at the end of Tambaqui Street in the Lagoa district, east of Porto Velho.

When the PM arrived at the scene, she found a body floating in the waters of a small stream that runs behind a condominium near the Atacadão of BR 364. The body appeared to be a [trans woman], as a reddish-colored wig was found there. The body was already in an advanced state of decomposition and what appeared to be a glove was actually the leather of the transvestite's hand.

The Criminal Forensics and Homicide Department removed the body from the water, but no documents was found near the corpse making it impossible to identify the body at the scene. Investigators observed a perforation in the victim's left chest, indicating a possible execution.
