Priscila and her cisgender partner Gleiciano Prado Santos were both shot dead in their home on the night of Thursday 10th February.

Teixeira de Freitas: "The streets smell of blood", said a neighbor of the residence where the double murder took place. The crime took place on the night of this Thursday, February 10, at around 8:55 pm, on the first floor of a property on Rua Adelina B. Medeiros in the São Lourenço neighborhood. It was the third homicide recorded in Teixeira de Freitas in less than 10 hours, and the growing violence has frightened the city's residents.

According to information known, two criminals arrived on a motorcycle. The passenger got off, called the victim's name, entered the building and shot the victims several times. He then came back down the stairs and fled with his accomplice in an unknown direction. According to the police investigation, one of the victims is Gleiciano Prado Santos, 19 years old, and Priscila, 27 years old (a [trans woman]). The victims had arrived 30 (thirty) days ago from Linhares-ES, rented the building and lived together. Gleiciano was working on the watermelon harvest.

The couple were shot by firearms of 9mm caliber, and according to expert Garrido, twelve 9mm shell cases were found at the scene. Also according to the expert, a crime that took place earlier in Bairro Rosa Luxemburgo, also used a 9mm caliber weapon. Depending on the outcome of investigations, forensic assistance may be requested to carry out a necropapiloscopic identification expertise, as the police did not find the identity documents of the victims.
