Lola's decomposed body was found in her home on Saturday 28th August after neighbours reported a bad smell emanating from her apartment.

Lola Santos, 51, a transsexual woman, was found dead at home on Saturday night (28), in Jardim Universo, in Mogi das Cruzes. According to information from the State Department of Public Security (SSP), "police were called by the victim's neighbors after they smelled a bad smell coming from inside her apartment." The case is being treated as a homicide.

Lola was a hairdresser but was currently unemployed and receiving help from the federal government. The note sent by the SSP to O Diário shows that, "when they entered the [apartment], the MPs found the body in a state of putrefaction. The house was searched", and that "the Homicide and Protection of Persons Department (SHPP) and the expertise were called in and images from security cameras collected for analysis". The case was registered as a homicide on duty in Mogi das Cruzes.

On the internet, many people and groups have been speaking out about the death of Lola, which resembles the case of Nataly Lily, also a transsexual, who was reported missing in December 2020, in an “architected” crime.
