Fabiana was stabbed by a man who followed her to the bathroom in a bar. Her assailant was then attacked by locals before being arrested.
A trans woman identified as Fabiana da Silva Lucas, 30 years old, was stabbed to death in the early hours of this Wednesday (7) in a bar in Santa Cruz do Capibaribe, in the Agreste region of Pernambuco. The suspect in the crime, identified only as Gaúcho, 22 years old, was attacked by other drinkers while trying to flee and taken in serious condition to the Hospital da Restauração (HR), in the center of Recife.
According to the delegate Érica Feitosa, in charge of the case, the victim arrived at the establishment and asked where the bathroom was. Upon arriving there she was attacked by the aggressor and died on the spot. Her body was sent to the Institute of Forensic Medicine (IML) in Caruaru.
"Fabiana was known in the region. She probably did programs. And there was no confusion with anyone. People said she got along well, there was no problem," said the delegate to the local blog Caruaru on Face.
According to the delegate, investigations are now seeking to identify the motives for the crime. "What we still need to know is the motivation. Why did he do this with Fabiana? We have several theses raised. Apparently, Fabiana did nothing against the author. It is unknown if he had paid to do a program with her or just didn't like Fabiana, if she had any previous disagreements, we don't know for sure," added the delegate. The suspect is in custody at the hospital.
