Mikely's body was found on a dirt road with gunshot wounds on the morning of Thursday 4th March.

The body of the [trans woman] found on a dirt road on Thursday morning (4), in Safra, bordering Itapemirim and Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, is owned by Mikelly Câmara, 25, according to the Civil Police.

[Deaname] Ferreira da Silva - Mikelly's name in the civil registry - lived in the União neighborhood, in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim.

Mikelly, also known as Moneti, had five gunshot wounds: two in the face, one in the neck and one in each hand. The police were called by a farmer who passed by the stretch of road, which connects Cachoeiro to Marataízes, at around 8:30 am and saw the [trans woman] lying lifeless on the ground.

The crime is still being investigated by the Itapemirim Regional Police, which reported having started investigating shortly after the body was located. Forensics believe that the shots were fired from a short distance and in the same location where the victim was found. Shell casings were not found.
