In a bizarre incident in Brazil, a woman attempted to get a loan for a deceased man at a bank branch. The incident took place in a Rio suburb, and the woman was captured on security camera footage bringing in a 68-year-old man in a wheelchair. The footage showed her trying to make the man sign for a loan of 17,000 reais (approximately US$3,250). However, it was later determined that the man had been dead for hours prior to the incident.

Unsuccessful Attempt to Obtain a Loan

The woman, identified as Erika Vieira Nunes, can be seen in the security video wheeling the man into the bank and approaching a teller. She held a pen and attempted to move the man’s hand forward to sign the loan documents, but there was no response from him. In the video, she can be heard speaking to the man, referring to him as “Uncle” and urging him to sign. When the man remained unresponsive, she suggested signing for him, stating that he doesn’t speak and assuring him that she would take him to the hospital if he was not feeling well.

Bank Staff Suspicions and Police Intervention

Bank staff became suspicious when they noticed that the man’s head kept falling back whenever the woman stopped holding it. Recognizing that something was amiss, they promptly contacted the police. The police arrived at the scene and arrested Erika Vieira Nunes on fraud charges. The man’s body was subsequently taken to the morgue for further examination.

Forensic Analysis Confirms Time of Death

In her defense, Erika Vieira Nunes claimed that the man had died at the bank. However, a police forensic analysis determined that the man had actually died earlier while lying down. This evidence contradicted her statement and provided crucial information for the investigation.

This unusual incident highlights the importance of vigilance and adherence to legal procedures in financial institutions. It also serves as a reminder of the significance of forensic analysis in determining the time and circumstances of a person’s death.
