J. was shot by a dissaffected client in what appears to have been a revenge killing.

[deadname] Cardoso, 21, a transsexual woman, was shot and killed in the early hours of Wednesday (28), in the Beira Rio I neighborhood, in Parauapebas, southeast of the state. The motivation of the crime is still being investigated, but according to the Civil Police (PC), it may have been revenge. At the time of going to press no one had been arrested.

The crime took place around 12:30 am on the corner of Avenida Presidente Kennedy and Rua Rio Azul. The victim was on the street when she was approached by two men who arrived on a motorcycle and fired several times at her. She had no chance to defend herself and died at the scene. Information obtained by the PC indicates that [deadname] had taken the cell phone of a client to whom she provided services, but who had refused to pay the agreed amount. With the aid of colleagues, she had beaten the man. The police are working with the hypothesis of retaliation.
