During the attack, the influencer’s mobile phone and belongings were stolen.

The influencer was reportedly wearing a dress and women’s shorts while out with pals.

On Wednesday night, while walking back to the hotel with his friends, he stopped at a kiosk and told the rest of the group he would follow on shortly.

Hours later, his pals learned that he had been found unconscious and half-naked on the beach after being badly beaten, according to the news site G1.

A passing nurse found him and called for help. He was then taken to a hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries on the morning of 20th January.

His friend Henrique Tome said: “He was disfigured, with many injuries on his face. There were no wounds on his body. I couldn’t even recognise my friend. It’s very sad to see a person’s life taken like this, for no reason. He was a very hardworking person who fought for the common good. It’s very painful.”

His friends and family said they believe he was the victim of a homophobic attack. However, while not ruling out the motive, the police pointed out that he was also robbed and cannot yet confirm why he was fatally beaten.
