Jasmyne was transitioning. Her body was found with gunshot wounds on a dirt road in the Guarapes neighorhood on the morning of Tuesday 30th April.

Police believe that she had been taken to the scene and killed there.

[Editor's note: this is one of those cases where the available information is lacking. None of the public reports we've found identify the victim as trans (though one says they were "homosexual"), and the only reason they appeared on our radar was that RedeTransBrasil and Observatorio Lac identified them as a trans murder victim. According to the latter, Jasmyne was transitioning, so her female identity is recorded here. Observatorio Lac records the source of the report as Rebecka de França of AtransparĂȘncia RN]
