Daniele was stabbed with a pair of scissors. According to the neighbours arguments were heard at Daniele’s house on several occasions, and her family suspects that the crime may have been committed by a former partner.
Police were called by neighbors of the victim on Sierra Leone Street in the Parque das Nações neighborhood. They were suspicious because the dogs were barking a lot and decided to go to the woman's house. When they broke through the door and entered the building, they noticed the stench and found Danielle Jesus Lafon dead.
A pair of scissors that might have been used in the crime was collected by the Civil Police for forensic tests. Witnesses told the Military Police that the [trans woman] was visited between the last Thursday (31) and Saturday (2), during which time the crime may have occurred. Witnesses said one of the visits was by a motorcyclist who was attending the woman's house. There is a suspicion that they have a relationship.
