A fitness celebrity was fatally shot in the car of her ex-boyfriend before he reportedly turned the gun on himself.
On the afternoon of May 15, Micaelly Lara was allegedly murdered by her ex-partner David Aparecido da Silva.
The influencer gained a huge amount of followers by releasing footage of herself dancing or working out at the gym while maintaining a sense of fun. She had over a million followers on social media, including 650,000 on TikTok and 100,000 on Instagram.
Friends of the 19-year-old claim she began a new connection with Vinny Pollo after recently divorcing with Da Silva, 30. However, the suspect reportedly refused to accept the termination of their relationship.
CCTV footage captured the influencer’s dying moments, showing her entering the suspect’s car outside her house in Hortolândia, Brazil, near So Paulo.
Da Silva reportedly shot her dead 20 minutes later.The gunshots were mistaken for a motorbike passing by on the street at the same time, according to the building management, but he was startled to discover the parked automobile with its engine still running several hours later and phoned the police.
Later that evening, Micaelly and Da Silva were discovered dead inside the car.
He was holding a pistol, and investigators suspect he shot his ex-girlfriend in the head before repeating the deed on himself.According to José Regino, the commander of the Women’s Defence Police Station in Hortolândia, the victim got into the suspect’s car at 1.10pm. He is said to have fired the bullets at 1.30 p.m.
“I told her ‘this guy is a psychopath, this guy’s crazy, if I were you I’d leave, go to the coast, I don’t know, stay away for a while because this guy wants to do something bad to you’.”
There was also a claim that police were summoned after the duo argued on a beach in Guaruja on April 20. On that occasion, a cellphone was damaged, the suspect was reportedly found with narcotics by police, and Da Silva and policemen got into a confrontation.
Micaelly was buried on May 17 at the Parque Hortolândia Cemetery, and authorities are investigating the killings as femicide followed by suicide.
