Eliane Ferreira Siolin, 35, was a social media influencer with 58,000 followers on TikTok. She was shot dead in front of her six-year-old allegedly by her husband who killed himself soon after. The bodies were found on the back porch of a property in Ponto Pora, Brazil on Sunday.
Eliane’s body had at least 14 gunshot wounds and her right arm was apparently broken, while Antonio’s body had a single gunshot to the head.
According to police, the couple argued often, including about Eliane’s social media posts.
Officer Analu Ferraz said: “Close friends said they fought a lot, even in public.”
The deceased, who got married to 49-year-old Tom Sharkey a year ago, had reportedly opened up to friends about the couple’s marital issues, including physical and verbal abuse. “He strangles me and chokes me out and I blackout and wake up on the bathroom floor every single time,” Sharkey’s friend recalled her saying once. Some even claimed the couple was headed towards a divorce.
So far, police have seized a gun, a number of bullets and a spare magazine found close to the bodies.
It is reported the couple’s six-year-old daughter witnessed the incident, and she was later taken in by relatives.
Local media also suggested the pair argued about one of Eliane’s TikTok videos during the row.
