The body of the young Luan de Aragio Barbosa, 26, was found late Saturday morning (16) in the Goyanya River. He disappeared after going for a walk with two fish dogs and a hunting alligator. The body was recognized by the family.
Luan has been missing since last week (10). Relatives reported that he went hunting and brought equipment. Firefighters began a search and found a pair of boots he wore, a knife and some ropes. One of the dogs was found dead.
The body was found near the GO-020 bridge over the Meia Ponte River, on the border with the Senador Canado municipality. Firefighters began a search at a wastewater treatment plant in Atinev Park, where they set up a makeshift camp.
The teams traveled 7 km on foot and snapped the victim. The family was alerted, went to the scene and recognized the victim, including the clothing she was wearing. "He was wearing trousers and a camouflage t-shirt and through his clothing identified his father and brother," said Capt. Brito Brazal, fire chief operating supervisor.
He further explained that it was not possible to determine what caused Luan's death and that only an expert opinion and report from the Forensic Institute would be able to indicate this.
