The Brazilian ‘influencer’ Eliane Ferreria Siolin was shot dead by her husband after he reacted violently to a video she posted on social media. According to local media, the incident occurred during a family barbecue in Ponta Pora, Brazil. The man took his own life after killing his wife.
Eliane’s body was found with at least 14 gunshot wounds and her right arm was apparently broken, while Antonio’s body was found with a single shot to the head. According to police, the couple often argued, including over Eliane’s posts on social media. Officer Analu Ferraz said: “Close friends said they fought a lot, even in public.”
According to a police report, the bodies were found in the backyard of the house where the barbecue was taking place. In addition, they found a pistol, several bullets and a spare magazine near the bodies. They presume that the couple’s six-year-old daughter witnessed the incident and was later taken in by relatives.
The guests of the family barbecue assured that they realized what had happened when they heard the shots. The influencer had a TikTok account with more than 58,000 followers.
