An 18-year-old woman has reportedly died from “excessive vaginal bleeding” after she had sex with her boyfriend in a hotel.
However, the police are regarding her death as suspicious and want to further question the young man.
Teenage Sirleia Franco Barbosa died in a hotel room in the town of Maracaju in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul on the afternoon of Thursday, 7th October.
According to the police report, her boyfriend, Anderson Souza Andrade, said he had sex with the teen, but she started to bleed profusely from her vagina and then ran to the bathroom.
The 23-year-old man told the police he left the hotel and came back to find her passed out on the bathroom floor, and he unsuccessfully tried to drag her to the bedroom.
It was not explained why or for how long he left the hotel.
The fire brigade arrived on the scene and pronounced the victim dead.
Paramedics who also went to the scene noted the victim’s hair and hands were wet, but her clothes were clean and dry.
The young man went to the Municipal Hospital, where he gave his version of events to the police. It was not reported why he went to the health facility.
According to the police, he was “very nervous” at the time.
He was then referred to the police station for further questioning. No other updates on this were given at the time of reporting.
The victim’s mother, Cirlene Franco, announced the young woman’s death on Facebook, writing: “I would like everyone to remember Sirleia with great affection because she left us today.”
The police are regarding the teen’s death as suspicious.
