Alves’ mother told Brazilian news outlet G1 that Fonseca approached her and promised to find the killers.

Olesiane Alves recalled her daughter telling her hours before she was murdered that she was going break up with Fonseca because they it was not going to ‘work out.’

In a separate incident, also in 2022, Fonseca beat her daughter after she found her speaking with an ex-boyfriend.
‘There were a few times when they argued and she arrived with some bruises. I thought it was bad to interfere, but it was difficult,’ she said. She didn’t say much to me because she knew I (felt) her pain.’
A friend also told G1 that Alves had taken a break from her abusive relationship with Fonseca and advised her to go to the police after Fonseca had threatened to kill her.
She shared a text message from a month ago in which she told Alves, ‘if he threatens you and hurts you again get an order of protection.
‘This is how most femicides happen. No one believes a person is capable until they see that they are dead.’
She said that Fonseca tried to enter a party uninvited and tried to confront Alves, but was stopped from doing so.
On separate occasion he broke into Alves’ mother’s home while she was taking a shower.
