According to what witnesses told the authorities, shortly before the report they saw a man leave the house. They also said that the woman and her partner lived on the property, who was allegedly the person who fled when the discovery was made.

The facts were reported to the Public Ministry of the State Prosecutor’s Office in that municipality, for which investigations began under the crime of femicide, as established by protocol.
