Jéssica Sabrine da Silva was only 22 years old and lived in a neighborhood in the Northeast region of Belo Horizonte (MG). A few days ago she allegedly had a meeting with a 21-year-old boy who, some witnesses say, was a ‘lover’, at his house. But what was supposed to be just a ‘date’ ended up as a barbaric tragedy.
After a few days of this meeting, the man would have missed a watch that he said he kept at home. It was then that the guy, whose name has not yet been revealed by the police, would have started to suspect Jéssica, who in her mind was the perpetrator of a theft. The boy accused her a few times directly of having taken the object.
On Thursday night (1st), unhappy with the alleged disappearance of the watch, the so-called ‘fiance’ went after Jéssica, found her on the street and murdered her with several shots. It was not even possible to help her, as the young woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the crime, after being hit in the face and chest.
Several people close to the victim, angry, claim that she had no connection with criminal acts, had never been involved in any illegality and that they cannot explain how such a banal situation ended in a barbaric homicide.
“She just passed the Enem for Pedagogy, but this son of a bitch went there and took away her dream, as she was struggling to get into college,” said the young woman’s mother, Gilza Bernardino, to the Rádio Itatiaia report.
The woman also said that she did not know of any relationship between her daughter and anyone and that the young woman had only had one boyfriend, a long time ago. Regarding the version of the watch theft, Gilza states that it was a rumor spread by minors who live in the region, information that has already been passed on to the Minas Gerais Civil Police.
“They got this information from two children who were talking on the street. There is no such thing as a watch. The person would have to prove this wrong and malicious information. I want to make a request to mothers: wherever your children go, ask them to let you know where they are, stay on their toes. That’s what the phone is for. The telephone saves lives. Yesterday a phone call would have saved my daughter’s life”, lamented Jéssica’s mother.
