Bia was stabbed in the chest in what appears to have been an attempted robbery.

A transgender woman was found dead this Friday night (12), with a chest wound in João Pessoa, the state capital. According to the Military Police (PM), the crime took place at a prostitution point, located in the Ernesto Geisel neighborhood.

Bia, who had been a [sex worker] for more than five years, used drugs and was involved in robberies in the region, according to a friend's account, who believes a mistaken robbery attempt may have taken the woman's life.

The victim, whose full name and age are still unknown, must undergo an expert examination to identify the type of weapon used in the crime. Likewise, the motive and the suspect also remain undefined.
