On July 20, 2021, Brazilian voice actress Christiane Louise was murdered in her apartment in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro at age 49, by economist Pedro Paulo Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa, who said the reason why he murdered her was supposedly she was "possessed by the devil" and used a broken cup to commit the murder, where first cut her leg and then cut her throat. He, along with his mother and an unidentified third person, hid her body with plastic bags in an area of vegetation on Grumari Beach. The two were friends and met in 2017, in a psychiatric clinic, where they underwent treatment and in the last years, because he has a crisis, she welcomed him in her apartment.
Christiane's voice acting friends and her family noticed that she was missing, which prompted her to come to her apartment on the Joaquim Nabuco Street, in Ipanema.
Later on August 5, 2021, her death was announced by voice actor Mário Tupinambá on his Instagram. Days later, on August 13, her killer was arrested by the Civil Police of Rio, for committing the murder. She voiced the actress Emmanuelle Vaugier and characters like Mrs. Morello from Everybody Hates Chris, Edna Krabappel from The Simpsons, Debbie Thornberry from The Wild Thornberrys, Gloria from the Happy Feet movies, Daphne from Winx Club, Zatanna from Justice League Unlimited and Injustice: Gods Among Us, Angie from Shark Tale, Mercy from Overwatch, Cortana from Halo 3 and 4 and Daisy Duck from Disney, which the latter unfortunately lost because someone from TV Group Digital Brasil clowned her and also blocked her on WhatsApp and ended up being replaced by Izabel Lira in The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse (although Christiane voiced Daisy only in episode 9).
May she rest in peace.
