Brazilian police are investigating the mysterious death in Sao Paulo (Brazil) of Livia Gabriele da Silva Santos shortly after having a sexual encounter with Dimas Candido de Oliveira Filho, a 19-year-old player of the Corinthians U-20 team.
The 19-year-old, who was rushed to the Municipal Hospital of Tatuape, died after suffering a hemorrhage in her genitals (she had a five-centimeter cut) and four cardiorespiratory arrests.
“We were called to verify an emergency call at PS Tatuape. It was about a 19-year-old girl who presented four consecutive respiratory arrests, one on site, one in the Samu vehicle and two at PS Tatuape, resulting in death….. The boy claims that they were having normal sexual relations. She started to feel sick and then called the SEM”, explained Lucas Sarri, the lieutenant of the Military Police, on ‘Radio Itatiaia’.
Metropoles reports that the Fifth Police Station for the Defense of Women, under the 30th Police District of Sao Paulo, registered the death of Livia Gabriele da Silva Santos as “suspicious”.
The soccer player declared that Livia fainted when she noticed blood on her genitals.
The soccer player, who called the emergency services and accompanied the young woman in the ambulance to the hospital, declared to the police that he had a consensual sexual relationship with Livia, who, according to him, fainted when she noticed that she had blood on her genitals.
Tiago Lenoir, the soccer player’s lawyer, stated in the Brazilian newspaper ‘Metropoles’ the two young people met a month ago on Instagram and confirmed that “they had consensual sex using condoms. And in the place there were only electronic cigarettes that they had used”.
The counsel insisted that the two young men did not consume alcohol or drugs and also did not use any objects in their consensual sexual encounter.
