When questioned by the press when he arrived at the DEHS, the man confessed the crime and said it was an ‘accident’, even with the victim’s body being found with 14 stab wounds through the body. According to Caio, he was under the effect of drugs. The suspect is being interrogated at this moment.

The case

The federal servant was 58 years old and was found lifeless by her daughter Stephanie Viega in her apartment, with strangulation marks and perforations in her abdomen. Silvanilde was the director of the 15th Labor Court. The woman’s death gained repercussions throughout the state and nationally.

According to the Civil Police, according to Stephanie’s account, on the night of the death, the daughter sent two messages to her mother, but got no response. Then she asked the condo doorman to go to the apartment to check if everything was okay. The employee reported that no one answered the phone and that all the vehicles were parked in their spaces.

The servant’s daughter went to the apartment with her boyfriend and found her mother on the living room floor, face down on a pool of blood, lifeless. “She also reported that there were no signs of forced entry and the only thing taken from the place was the victim’s cell phone,” the Civil Police said in a statement.

On May 23, a preliminary report from the Forensic Medical Institute (IML) disclosed that the causes of Silvanilde’s death were shortness of breath due to the cut of the trachea – in the neck region – and bleeding in the brain. The case is being investigated by DEHS and the proceedings surrounding the death of the victim are ongoing.
