Verônica's body was found with multiple stab wounds on Friday 25th February. Her partner is on the run.

The trans Amazonian woman Verônica Martineli was found dead in the early hours of this Friday (25), in the city of São Paulo. According to information, the victim had knife marks on her body.

Relatives and friends appeal to samba schools in Manaus to help bring Veronica's body and ask for justice for the crime from São Paulo authorities.

Radar spoke with friends and family of the victim, and according to them, the suspect in the homicide would supposedly be a man identified as Kevin Barkleu Muniz dos Santos, who would be the victim's companion and would be living in São Paulo with Verônica.

Verônica had been elected as First Carnival Princess of SP 2022 by X-9 Paulistana and was living in São Paulo recently.

The companion is on the run in the capital of São Paulo.
