In January last year, we reported on the death of Camilla Peixoto Bandeira, age 28, aboard the MSC Musica cruise ship. Her boyfriend, Bruno Souza Bicalho, allegedly found Ms. Bandeira deceased in their cabin, claiming that she committed suicide by hanging herself with a sheet from an overhead pipe.
Today, a newspaper in Brazil reports that the police concluded that Ms. Bandeira was murdered by her boyfriend, with the cause of death being strangulation with the hands. The conclusions were based on medical and forensic analysis and investigations conducted by the Brazilian police officers aboard the ship.
Camilla's cause has been championed by her brother, José Godolphim Bandeira Netto, who publishes a blog about the family's ordeal.
This case is now heading toward a prosecution of Mr. Bicalho for the murder of Ms. Bandeira.
We applaud Jose and Ms. Bandeira's family for their efforts in finding justice for Camilla.
