Sabrina was stabbed by her new boyfriend - allegedly after he discovered that she was trans.

A 22-year-old mechanic was arrested on suspicion of killing the nursing technician Sabrina Oliveira, in São José do Rio Preto (SP). According to information from the Civil Police, the man had been dating the victim for a week. Sabrina was stabbed after an argument with the boy, but the motivation is yet to be determined.

According to the incident report, in the early hours of last Saturday (12), neighbors saw a man entering the victim's house and heard a noise, so they suspected theft and the police were called. Sabrina Oliveira was found dead inside the house, while the suspect was identified and located based on information from the victim's car, after he had gone to celebrate the crime with friends in a bar.

After being approached, the suspect confessed to the crime. He said he had defended himself out of fear of being attacked by her. Police investigations indicate that the man discovered that the victim was transgender, and that this was the motive. The man was taken to the Specialized Division of Criminal Investigations (Deic) and arrested in flagrante delicto for robbery (robbery followed by death).

Gustavo Bernardo Paina, 22, had been arrested for her murder.
