A transsexual nursing technician was found dead inside the Regional Hospital of Augustinópolis, in northern Tocantins, this Wednesday morning (12). Isabele Oliveira, as she was known, was 36 years old. Coworkers told the Military Police that she was asleep at rest and did not wake up.

Her death was noticed early in the morning, when colleagues tried to wake up the nursing technician and found that she had no vital signs. The Military Police was called around 7 am and the case was registered as a death to be clarified.

The delegate of the Civil Police was called and the expertise was also at the place. The body was taken to the IML of Tocantinópolis.

The Association of Transvestites and Transsexuals of the State of Tocantins (ATRATO) issued a note of condolence and stated that Isabelle Oliveira was a prominent activist in the fight against LGBT discrimination. "She led several fights and flags, with important achievements, mainly in the job market."
