Vitória was stabbed and thrown from a client's car. She died at the scene.

A [trans woman] was found dead during the night of this Saturday (23), in the vicinity of Avenida Indianópolis, in Planalto Paulista (south zone of São Paulo). The area is known as a traditional prostitution spot in São Paulo's nightlife, where [trans and cisgender] sex workers gather.

According to the SSP (Secretary of Public Security), a military police patrolled the neighborhood when they were called to attend to an incident of aggression in the Alameda dos Uapés.

At the scene, they found the victim on the ground and bleeding from her body. The PM claimed to have been called at 3:06 am, and at the reported location they found a person wounded by a knife. The Samu (Mobile Emergency Care Service) was called and found the victim dead at the scene. She had not been identified at the conclusion of this text.

[Sex workers] in the area say the [trans woman] was stabbed and thrown out of a car. The case was registered with the 16th DP (Vila Clementino), but will be investigated by the DHPP (Department of Homicide and Protection of Persons).

Vitória was from Ceará, and at the time of her death was planning to return home to see her family.
