Maiara Castro da Silva

Maiara's body was found in a state of advanced decomposition. The cause of her death is unknown.

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, they 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], and a reddish-colored wig was found at the scene. The body was already in an advanced state of decomposition and the image that appears to be a glove was actually the skin of her hand.

The Criminal Forensics and Homicide Department removed the body from the water, but no documentation was found on or near the corpse, making it impossible to identify the body at the scene. The Experts observed a perforation in the victim's left chest, indicating a possible execution. The body was taken to the IML for a more detailed identification autopsy.
