A Brazilian influencer named Luanne Jardim has died from a botched robbery attack.
Jardim was shot dead in her car following a high speed chase in Rio, in front of her boyfriend and their two year old son.
The 33 year old influencer was shot on the shoulder and was rushed to the Salgado Filho Municipal Hospital, where she eventually gave up.
According to Mail Online, Luanne Jardim was in the passenger seat of her car and her boyfriend Joao Farche was trying to run from the suspects on the night of Sunday, May 21 when it happened.
Although the Rio de Janeiro Military Police is investigating this incident as an attempted robbery, Jardim’s father believes her daughter was executed.
‘Certainly, this was not a mere theft, robbery’ Atanael Jardim said, as quoted by Brazilian news outlet G1.
‘This was a homicide because no one inside a car is going to steal the other and shoot from inside the car with the window closed.’
A police report disclosed that the attackers shot at the rear of the car and then approached it from the side to shoot at Jardim.
Unfortunately her death occurred about 15 days after she swapped her Porsche with bullet proof windows for another car without armored protection.
Jardim who is also a mother to a 10 year old daughter, became a social media star after overcoming a relationship filled with domestic violence in 2019, in addition to obesity and depression battles.
No arrests have been made as of Tuesday afternoon.
