Autopsy reveals horrifying update on dead man 'wheeled into a bank' by his niece

Autopsy reveals horrifying update on dead man 'wheeled into a bank' by his niece

Érika de Souza Vieira Nunes took her uncle to a bank, but something was very wrong

After a man was wheeled into a bank by his niece in Brazil, the autopsy report found something horrifying.

People online were left disturbed out after videos circulated on social media of a man who appeared to be dead at the kiosk.

As a woman appeared to be helping the individual with keeping his head steady, bank workers quickly noted red flags during their interaction which spurred them on to begin filming Érika de Souza Vieira Nunes and her uncle, even though the woman claimed that nothing was wrong with him.

However, as she continued to hold a pen between his fingers to sign off on a loan for 17,000 reais (£2,600), things became clearer that the situation wasn’t normal.

As she would take hold of his head to stop it from swaying, staff questioned her uncle’s health.

One bank clerk said in the footage: “I don’t think he’s well. He doesn’t look well at all.”

Well, he definitely wasn’t well at all as the investigating officer, Fábio Luiz Souza explained to breakfast news program Bom Dia Rio that the man was actually deceased.

He said: “She knew he was dead … he had been dead for at least two hours.”

During the interaction at the bank, clerks told Nunes that her uncle looked unwell and ‘very pale’.

But Nunes wasn’t backing down from her loan approval and replied: “He’s like that."

She then turned to her uncle and asked: “If you’re not well, I can take you to hospital. Do you want to go back to the hospital again?”

That’s when bank staff called for paramedics. Police claimed Paulo Braga had died hours before he was wheeled into the bank and Nunes was arrested at the scene.

Now, an autopsy has revealed a horrifying update obtained by Brazilian news outlet Metrópoles.

According to the document, it showed that his death was caused by ‘bronchoaspiration and heart failure’.

The coroner’s office is waiting for the results of a test as to whether the 68-year-old had been poisoned.

The report states: “Such data corroborates the necroscopic finding of malnutrition and bronchoaspiration.

“The previous heart disease found also contributed to the death event.”

Bronchoaspiration occurs when a foreign material (even food) is swallowed or inhaled and enters the airway or lungs by accident.

But Nunes and her representative claim that this is not how it appears and that her uncle was alive when they arrived at the bank.

Her lawyer Ana Carla de Souza Correa also insists that witnesses could account for her innocence: “The facts did not occur as has been narrated. Paulo was alive when he arrived at the bank.

“We believe in Érika’s innocence.”

Police chief Souza waved the statement away and said: “Anyone who sees that [video] can see the person was dead.”
