Jussara was shot dead in a boarding house on Avenida Visconde de Guarapuava. Her assailant fled the scene.
The 55-year-old [trans woman] Jurandi Pires da Silva was murdered at dawn on Saturday (11), in downtown Curitiba. The victim owned a pension, located at the crime scene on Avenida Visconde de Guarapuava. Delegate Tito Barichello of the Homicide and Protection of Persons Division (DHPP) commented that the assailant was staying at the boarding house.
“The information we had is that a person knocked on the door and asked to come in and use one of the rooms. After he went inside with the owner of the property he fired several shots. We had witnesses who described the hooded assailant, but the information was only superficial,” said the delegate.
