The murderer, who is jailed in the police station of Santo Antônio do Descoberto, is a 29 years old man called Vagner. He confessed the murder when he surendered to police authorities. Vagner reportedly had a relationship with the victim, identified as Paulete, a well-known figure in Santo Antônio.

Authorities were triggered by the killer himself, who, after murdering Paulete, headed straight to the police station and confessed the murder. Police then went to the victim’s home and found her dead, thus confirming the information given by Vagner, who was arrested.

During the questioning, Vagner assumed a relationship with the victim for almost three years and that both were drinking in the victim’s house, at parque Santo Antônio, when a futile argument started between the two because of sex. Vagner wanted sex and Paulete didn’t, so Vagner started stabbing Paulete with a knife until she was dead. Vagner then went to meet police authorities.

Vagner remains in police custody. When this was written, Paulete’s body remained in her home waiting to be removed and for the CSU unit.

#Trigger warning: During the original texts, in a transphobic manner, the authors kept calling them not as the woman they were, but as men, even calling them homossexuals and these crimes labelled as homophobic, in a clear and violent denial of the existance of trans people beyond sexual orientation.
