Travesti é encontrado morto, com facadas, dentro de casa
Um travesti foi encontrado morto na casa em que residia, na tarde de ontem, no bairro Bela Vista 2, em Rio Preto. O corpo de Fernando Domingues Rosa, de 36 anos, foi achado por vizinhos que chamaram a polícia militar. Segundo a perícia técnica, o corpo estava em cima da cama e apresentava três marcas de golpe de facas: no olho esquerdo, no lado direito do pescoço e também no ombro direito. A polícia suspeita que pode se tratar de um crime passional. “Nada foi levado da casa da vítima. Pode ter sido algum desentendimento de namorado”, disse o delegado Mauro Truzzi, do plantão policial.
