Bruna's half naked body was found with her hands and feet bound near the BR-381 highway early on Tuesday 6th October.

A body was found on the banks of the BR-381 [near the intersection with the BR-116] on Tuesday morning (6) in Governador Valadares. According to the Federal Highway Police, the victim was located around 5:30 am. She was half naked, with her hands tied to her feet and showed several signs of violence.

Witnesses said she was a 27-year-old [trans woman], but there was no identification document with the victim, who has not yet been identified by relatives.

The crime probably occurred during the night as a PRF team had passed by the site earlier and at that time the body was not there.
