Sérgio was reportedly left at home by his girlfriend, around 10:30 pm on the 9th, on Rua Bulhões de Carvalho, in Copacabana. He never entered the apartment and would have gone straight to the vicinity of the Park, where he often meditated. He reportedly headed towards the beach and, about three hours later, entered the Garota de Ipanema. Although the gates to the space are open at 6:00 am and closed at 5:00 pm daily, broken gates allow free access for regulars at any time.
Outburst on social network
Actress, singer and producer Carla Daniel, Sérgio Stamile’s girlfriend, spoke on social media. On her Instagram profile, she wrote this Sunday morning: “Let Justice be Done.” The outburst was made after the arrest of one of the suspects in the crime
Agents from the Crime Scene Group (Gelc) of the DHC carried out an investigation on the corpse still in Arpoador. The body showed lesions as if it had been dragged and was close to a rock with an approximate height of three meters. That region is a point of drug consumption and prostitution, especially during the night. He was taken to the Medico-Legal Institute (IML), and he was identified through papilloscopic forensics.
The autopsy report indicated the musician’s cause of death as undetermined. New complementary tests are being carried out on the victim’s blood to define what caused or contributed to the death.
