Jenni was found dead with head injuries in a building in the neighbourhood of Ingleses, in the north of Santa Catarina Island. A suspect was arrested just over a month later on 23rd April 2017 and confessed to her murder.

She had previously been assaulted in 2013 and 2016.

The murder caused commotion in social networks, especially in the LGBT community of Santa Catarina.

Jenni, who worked with the sale of cosmetics, is described by friends as a “cheerful” person, “smiling” and “always saw the good side of life.”

Another friend wrote that today was a day of “cowardice … of prejudice … of injustice … What to talk about you ??? They are good things … joy … strength … friendship … courage. Not always what suits us serves the other … as well as what is good for another sometimes does not suit us … being different is not bad … life is made of differences … let’s know how to live .. .amar … to respect.”
