41 year old Erika Ferreira Petrosino, ex-wife of Luis Carlos Neves – former mayor of Carapicuiba, a city in the Sao Paulo state in Brazil, jumped to her death from the 19th floor of a hotel in Alphaville Barueri, also in the state of Sao Paulo. Erika Ferreira and Luis Carlos separated in 2010.
The incident happened on Monday March 26, 2012. On that day, Erika had a lunch with her ex-husband, wrote a suicide letter, climbed topless on a ledge on the 19th floor of the hotel and carried the suicide out by going jump-fall-splat. I’ve also heard that she killed two of their kids before jumping but couldn’t verify.
Her ex-husband was 66 year old (my finger automatically wrote 666 but I deleted the last digit). This sounds like a case of a successful gold digger whose life all of a sudden shattered after a new, younger, hotter gold digger pushed her obsolete, aged ass out of the way. Just my speculation, of course.
Many thanks to iricky for the video:
