The chief delegate of the municipality of Teutônia, José Romaci Reis, responsible for investigating the man who was found dead in the early afternoon of this Thursday (1st), in the town of Morro Azul, in the interior of Paverama, believes that the crime was directed the victim.
To the report of Rádio Independente, the delegate tells that as found so far, the criminal would have requested an app run for Edson Andreola Soares (43), better known as Mano do Uber, a resident of Triunfo. The applicant would go from Butiá to Paverama. “After we found out about the body, we started searches to try to identify the victim, that’s when we got to this app driver. We accessed several video surveillance cameras, which prove to us that this is really the case”, highlights the delegate.
Regarding the motivation, Reis believes that the crime was premeditated. “It’s weird to think it wasn’t targeted. Why didn’t the criminal ask for a ride from someone from Butiá? Since there are also app drivers in the municipality”, questions the delegate.
Also according to the delegate, Soares would not have been killed at the point where he was found, but at another point. “We still don’t know where it went, but he’s been dead longer. We still have many things to study, but I believe the crime took place at the behest of someone,” he said.
