Manaus (AM)– Amid the commotion of family members, the body of forró singer Romário de Jesus, 27, known as “Witch” or “Romarinho Mec“, was removed in the early afternoon of this Thursday (9), the morgue of Hospital 28 de Agosto, in the South-Central Zone of Manaus.

He was shot by rifle fire during a criminal attack at 5:00 am.

As his cousin, Dávila de Souza, for friends, family and followers, there are the lamentations for the dreams that Romarinho will fail to fulfill and even more for the family that will not have his presence.

We can’t tell if he was being threatened. He never got around to telling any of this. Everything happened at the end of his show, he took his friends home and then that happened. Possibly it was persecution, it couldn’t happen out of nowhere

Dávila also highlighted that the singer was a very familiar person and that he liked to help others. The singer would also not be involved in friction with third parties.

The team from the Special Precinct in Homicide and Kidnapping (DEHS) was at the scene and carried out the preliminary investigations. At the time of the removal of Romarinho’s body, a family member needed to be supported.

His body must undergo necropsy at the IML headquarters and will be released to his family.
