Fran was stabbed in her own home, where allegedly she was using drugs. Two teenagers have been arrested.

Two teenagers suspected of murdering the [trans woman] Fran, in the Semíramis Braga complex, in Londrina, in January 2023, were apprehended this Monday (3), for an offense analogous to homicide. The Civil Police complied with the arrest warrants and provisional hospitalization after investigations by the Londrina Homicide Police Station.

One of the teenagers was already under the custody of the State after being apprehended in Siqueira Campos on suspicion of participating in another homicide. The young man apprehended this Monday said he did not stab Fran, and the other denies participation in the crime.

Fran was stabbed at home, on Rua Maria Sinopoli Francovig, on January 10th and died of the wound three days later at the HU (University Hospital) in Londrina.

According to Homicide Commissioner João Reis, although the crime involves a transgender person, there is no evidence of homophobia. The crime was motivated because Fran lent the house for the consumption of narcotics and fights as a result of drug use ended up attracting the presence of the Military Police, which hindered trafficking in the region.

Reis also said that the [trans woman] was highly regarded by the residents of the neighborhood.
