Fabíola was beaten to death in prison after attempting to defend another inmate who was being tortured.

The Civil Police of Jequié in a joint action with SEAP / Jequié managed to identify the perpetrators of the murder against [Deadname] PEREIRA DE ANDRADE, aka “FABÍOLA”, which took place on March 31, 2020, inside the semi-courtyard 2, in the Penal Settlement of Jequié (CPJ). After the victim's death, the Civil Police learned that the perpetrators of the crime, in addition to having committed the murder, tortured another inmate for two days, keeping him inside the cell in the courtyard, without leaving for any outside activity.

According to the police, one of Fabiola's killers said the transsexual was killed with kicks, punches and “chunchadas” by at least 4 inmates. The crime was motivated by gender, that is, the simple fact of being transsexual and defending another inmate who was being tortured by the perpetrators.
