Debora's body was found dumped on wasteland on 2nd April. She may have been killed around four days earlier.

A body was found late afternoon the day before yesterday in the Murayama Garden, North Zone. The body was thrown on a wasteland on Rua Tiago Juliano Fernandes. The corpse was discovered by a man who was mowing the ground with a tractor. Storing the tractor behind a wall, he noticed that there was a dead person on the scene and immediately called the police.

Initially, the victim was believed to be a [cisgender] woman, since - despite the advanced state of decomposition - she wore a white blouse, carried a female bag and had her panties lowered to the middle of her leg.

However, upon examination of the crime scene experts, it turned out that the victim of violent death was actually [trans woman] who was killed with a blow to the head.

A large stone was next to the already decaying body. Police believe the victim was killed at least four days ago.
