SANTARÉM, PARÁ, BRAZIL – SEPTEMBER 25, 2023 In a shocking turn of events, the city of Santarém is mourning the loss of Councilor and businessman Aguinaldo Carvalho de Aguiar, known as Aguinaldo Promissória. The 46-year-old was found deceased in one of his residences, located on Avenida Anysio Chaves in the Aeroporto Velho neighborhood, early Monday morning. The cause of death is suspected to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Authorities were alerted to the incident around 1 am. Upon arrival at the scene, police discovered Promissória’s lifeless body in his home, alongside his daughter and a woman identified as Isabela Ataíde. Ataíde, who claimed to be Promissória’s girlfriend, was taken into custody for questioning.
Disturbing footage circulating on social media shows Ataíde standing next to Promissória’s bloodied body, which lies on a bed. In the video, a man accuses Ataíde of being responsible for Promissória’s death, an allegation she vehemently denies. Ataíde, whose clothing was stained with blood, underwent examinations and provided a statement to police. The details of her statement have not been publicly disclosed.
The case has been classified as a suicide, but forensic investigations are underway to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Promissória’s demise. His body will undergo an autopsy to provide further clarity.
Delegate Fábio Amaral, in a statement to TV Tapajós, emphasized the need to gather all necessary evidence and expert opinions before proceeding with the investigation.
