The unidentified woman was killed at around 4:30am near the Cove in Guarujá, a 310,000 city in São Paulo state.

Based on injuries to her face and chest, detectives believe her murderers used stones to attack the woman.

Beside the victim’s body, police also found a blood-stained brick, which was handed over to forensics to see whether it was part of the crime.

Brazil has a serious problem with queerphobic violence. According to a survey by the Gay Group of Bahia, one LGBTQ person is murdered in Brazil every 25 hours.
