Mellyssa was beaten around the head with a piece of wood by her boyfriend after he became angry that she was still doing sex work to support herself.

Her murder took place in a building on Rua Amadeu Castanho, in the neighborhood Vila Fátima, almost at the intersection with Rua Cláudio Bere.

According to her brother they had been living together for about two months. A 27 year old man was arrested for her murder at the house of a relative. He was a fugitive from Itirapina Penitentiary having previously been sentenced to prison for murdering his aunt.
