The suspects involved in the deaths of a man and a trans woman, in Maringá , in northern Paraná, surrendered to police on Friday (19). The crimes happened in the early hours of August 8, at a 15-minute interval. The suspect appeared at the Maringá police station, which investigates the crimes.

On the same day of the robberies, police identified three suspects and found the car used by the group in Sarandi, 6 km from Maringá.

One suspect was shot dead on 11 August. The man, 32, was hiding in a bush in the Jardim Bom Pastor neighborhood in Sarandi.

Police are still searching for the third suspect, 27, who is appointed as the owner of the vehicle. According to the investigations, he was the third suspect who drove the car at the time of the crime.

Shortly after being arrested, the suspect who surrendered took the police officers to the place where he killed the trans woman, on Avenida Colombo, and then to the place where he threw the knife used in the murders.

The two suspects arrested told police that there was a fourth person in the vehicle at dawn of the crimes. The person involved is a minor and has already been identified.
