Remember the case
Deise Fernanda Melo Pereira Alves was murdered while arriving at her home in the Roçado neighborhood of São José, in Florianópolis, on October 26, 2012. At the time, she was shot three times on her back.
Investigations led to the conclusion that she was killed by mistake in place of her husband, then director of the São Pedro de Alcântara Maximum Security Penitentiary, Carlos Antônio Alves.
The bandits' order, intercepted by the police, was to "exterminate Carlos Alves", Deise's husband and owner of the car. But, that night, Deise was driving the car.
As he parked in the garage the first shot was fired from the 9mm. The bullet pierced the rear windshield, traveled through the vehicle, passed over the victim's left shoulder and was stopped by the wall.
