Bruna died in hospital just over two weeks after being stabbed along with Isabelle Colstt in an attack on Tuesday 4th February. Isabelle died at the scene.

The second victim of the attack that left a transsexual woman dead in the Ingleses neighborhood, in Florianópolis, had her death confirmed this Saturday (22). Bruna Andrade, 30, has been admitted to the hospital since she was stabbed when she was with Isabelle Colstt, just over two weeks ago.

Bruna went be the name Onlynabru within the Pokemon GO community. Shortly after her death other players organised a tribute for her.

Bruna died last month of transphobia. She was a very well liked person in the Pokémon Go player community, so the Community is getting together to paint graffiti in her honor, turning them into pokestops / gyms to eternalize her memory in the game she loved so much! Some graffiti artists have already volunteered and embraced the cause, so we are organizing a kitty to buy the materials (the labor will be donated by them). Any help is welcome! Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

In March 2021 it was reported that a suspect is going to trial for Bruna's femicide. A trial date has not yet been set.

The man suspected of killing a trans woman in a motel in Florianópolis is going to a popular jury trial for femicide, after a complaint by the Public Ministry of Santa Catarina (MPSC). The [trans woman] was found dead inside the trunk of a car in Campeche, south of Santa Catarina Island, in Florianópolis, in February 2020.

According to the police, the man had an intimate relationship with the victim, but despised her because of [she was transgender]. On February 6, he allegedly took the victim to the motel on the pretext of having an intimate date. There, he allegedly asphyxiated her to death.

According to the police, the man then hid the body in the trunk of the car and tried to leave the scene without raising suspicions, but was intercepted by the police and arrested in the act.
