Dulce was shot in her home in what appears to have been a targeted execution.

A trans woman was murdered with a gunshot to the face inside her home, on Friday night (14), in the city of Serra Redonda, in the interior of Paraíba . According to the Military Police (PM), the crime took place on Rua Francisco Clementino de Andrade.

To Portal T5 , the Itabaiana sectional delegate, Eraldo Barbosa, informed that the victim was identified as Dulce Maria, aged 47. According to the Civil Police, the woman died from just one gunshot that also hit her neck.

According to the PM, the suspects were in a car when they committed the crime. In images posted on social media, one of the men gets out of the vehicle and, carrying a long gun, enters the residence and fires a shot.

The authorship and motivation of the crime are unknown. The Civil Police will investigate the case.

On Friday 26th January 2024 a man was arrested on suspicion of murder after surveillance footage showed him entering the house carrying a long-barelled gun and leaving a few seconds later.
