Jessica MattosAge 20
15 Jun 2018
Venâncio Aires, Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil)
Jessica's body was found by her sister with her head trapped in a window of an abandoned house at Rua Três, in Battisti neighborhood. She died by asphyxiation.
According to relatives, she slept in the abandoned house and used the window to get in and out of the property. As such her death was probably accidental, but also a result of the circumstances she found herself in. Grupo Gay da Bahia (who record deaths of LGBTQ+ people in Brazil) list her cause of death as "cultural transphobia".
