The person suspected of her murder has been named as Alexander Gunsch, Debora’s husband of 10 years.
Alexander reportedly told police that he had thrown his wife Debora against a piece of furniture, causing her to lose consciousness, amid a heated argument which turned physical.
then supposedly brought her to a hospital so she could receive medical attention, but rerouted to her parents’ house upon realising that she had already died, local media reports.
Debora’s body was found under a blanket on the pavement in front of her parents’ home in Montenegro, a city in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil in the early hours of Friday morning.
He was remanded in custody where he remains today, as a police request to extend his detention was granted on Saturday evening.
Ms Spinato added that police were treating the case as a femicide and Alexander was the main suspect.
Debora’s devastated brother Alex Michels told local media: “This situation is revolting. What our family wants is justice. You cannot leave anyone unpunished.”
A close friend of Debora’s, Deise Chemelo, described her as a “magnetic person”.
“She lit up every place she went; she only had friends, and she only did good.
“A fighter, an entrepreneur, there is no explanation for what happened. She didn’t deserve it. We don’t understand.”
The young woman, a bodybuilder, was popular on Instagram and had thousands of followers who tuned into her regular educational posts related to her job as a personal trainer and her active lifestyle.
Friends and family mourned the tragic loss of Debora at a funeral held on Saturday morning before she was buried in the Municipal Cemetery of Montenegro about 11 am the same day.

You’re Not Alone
EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide
It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.
Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.
