In Dois à 10, Joana Rodriguez was 20 years old when she was found lifeless, bruised and with a wound on her head. Three months after his death, the family still has no answers about what really happened.
Joana Rodriguez was 20 years old when her grandmother found her lifeless, her body was covered with bruises and a wound on her head. Arriving at the scene, the bailiff also found a blood stain on the floor and immediately ruled out the version of suicide, taking into account a possible accident or murder.
Once Monica Alves, Joana’s mother, was alerted, she went to her daughter’s paternal grandparents’ house where Joana lived and was surprised by what she saw. “It seemed very strange to me that her grandfather watered the garden. Dead granddaughter over there, and grandfather watering the garden? And then taking the eggs from the chickens… which made me a little embarrassed in the face of this scenario.”
Joana’s best friend also shared her perception of her friend’s relationship with her grandparents: “Grandma was very friendly with Joana, grandfather not so”, and recalled the episode when Joana appeared at school with a black eye: “I asked how it happened, and she told me that her grandfather took medicine and drank, and that he caught her in bed, squeezed her neck and hit her.”
Joan tried to commit suicide three times, but now this phase of depression was under control. Whenever she tried to commit suicide, she wrote farewell letters on social media and texts to her best friend, which did not happen this time. Monica Alves, Joana’s mother, never believed in the thesis of suicide and even believes that her daughter has experienced the best stage of her life. Something that an aunt, best friend and boyfriend agree on.
Three months have passed since Joan’s death, and since the possibility of suicide is ruled out, the mother is still waiting for answers. So what happened to Joana Rodriguez?
