Iasmim's body was found alongside the BR-424 highway on Sunday 17th September. She had last been seen two days earlier.

A transgender woman, identified as Iasmim, was found dead last Sunday (17), on the banks of the BR-424 highway, in the municipality of Garanhuns. Relatives of the 24-year-old girl reported the investigations that saw the victim for the last time, last Friday (15), when she left her residence, located in the city of Capoeiras, to go to a show in Caetés, municipality neighbor.

During Caetés' political emancipation party, Iasmim was accompanied by a friend, known as Bruninha, who is also a transsexual woman. Witnesses who were at the scene told the police that they suspected Iasmim's behavior, as the young woman went to the bathroom three times during the party, but the last time, she simply did not return and was never seen again.

The victim's corpse was found in an advanced state of decomposition, which prevented the Scientific Police from identifying whether there were signs of any type of violence on the body. The body was sent to the Institute of Legal Medicine (IML) for tests to determine the cause of death. The Civil Police investigates the case.
