The case was registered in the 48th PD (Seropédica). In conversation with the G1 , Solange Marinho, mother of [deadname] does not rule out homophobic crime.

"It may be everything. My [daughter] was [transgender], but she was not a clubber, did not drink, did not use drugs, or sleep on the streets. It was certainly an ambush. She must have gotten a call from an acquaintance and went out to meet them. He I would never meet anyone I didn't know. My [daughter] left home with only her car and his cell phone, "explains Solange.

I wish I could wish you a happy birthday, a tight hug and celebrate for your life. But unfortunately a monster has taken you from us so early, we can only keep the longing and the memory of our friendship. But I'm sure that wherever you are, you're still shining!
