She was rushed to a local hospital by car, but arrived at A&E without a pulse, according to doctors.

Police are now searching for Hevelyn’s former partner of three years, Alexandre Soares, who they have named as a suspect in the case.

Hevelyn had reportedly ended the relationship with Soares, which was said to have involved physical abuse, earlier this year.

Over the months following the separation, Soares allegedly sent threatening messages to Hevelyn’s phone.

Hevelyn’s family were too scared to report the assaults or the threats because they believed Soares to be a member of a gang.

Speaking to local media, Hevelyn’s father, Helton da Sant’Anna Rosa, said Soares was responsible for his daughter’s death.

“My daughter was shot in the forehead by a villain who did not accept their separation,” he said.

“She was murdered in a cowardly way. She never wanted to be with him, he’s one of those possessive people.
