Carol was beaten, raped and shot dead at about 7am on Thursday 18th October. Her body was found on a dirt road.

"There is no word that absorbs or transcribes our feelings, we die once again!

"The LGBT National Union, as well as its municipal fraction of Xanxerê / SC, comes through this to express the eternal mourning, we have violently lost one of ours. Carol Machado, transvestite and warrior was brutally murdered. Our friend was beaten and raped in every way, had her body shot through and then discarded somewhere in the mud, indigent and without humanity.

"A dismayed ONE understands that Carol's body is our body is the ones we want to reach, and they have hit because Carol is one of us. Carol was the first Secretary General of the National LGBT Union of Xanxerê / SC, Trans woman, disrespectful at all, ALL ways that someone may be disrespected, nor does Carol's death statement carry her true gender identity, and this is very painful, our soul is totally violated. Carol completed that 27-year-old week, recently earned her social name, even with the record in notarial record his name was not respected by local information vehicles. Unfortunately Carol is more of a trans person than endorsing mortality statistics.

"We no longer know how to make ourselves understood, when we reiterate that discourses of hatred are killing us, yes, they are killing us, knocking at our door and targeting us. Carol enrolled in an institution for adult studies shortly, Carol had dreams. Carol, was murdered on her birthday, loved and had family, we are part of her, Carol's family of love built, our sense of helplessness, devastation, will not shut us up, we want answers, we want justice."
