Body of young woman found in Dublin flat was decapitated

A woman whose body was found in her apartment last November died as a result of being decapitated, an inquest has heard.

A preliminary hearing into the death of Fabiole Camara de Campos at Dublin District Coroner’s Court heard she had also suffered blunt force trauma to the head and had been asphyxiated.

Ms Camara de Campos, 33 was found at her home in Charlestown Place, St Margaret’s Road, Finglas, in the city, on November 4, 2021.

A friend of the Brazilian national, Daniela Loyarte, gave evidence of formally identifying her body at Dublin City Morgue in Whitehall on November 12.

Ms Loyarte, who knew Ms Camara de Campos since school, organised a GoFundMe campaign last year which raised over €17,000 to repatriate her friend’s body.

Ms Camara de Campos, who came from Sao Paulo had just started working in a cryptocurrency firm, Telus International, as a customer support analyst.

She had previously worked in a number of jobs since arriving in Ireland in December 2016 including as a childminder and as a waitress in the Fleet Street Hotel.

Coroner Dr Clare Keane said a postmortem had shown that the cause of death was decapitation.

Dr Keane noted that Ms Camara de Campos had also suffered blunt force trauma to her head, while there were signs of pressure having been placed on her neck which resulted in asphyxia.

Inspector David Kemp applied for an adjournment of the inquest under Section 25 of the Coroner’s Act as criminal proceedings are ongoing.

Insp Kemp told the coroner a person had been charged in relation to Ms Camara de Campos’s death and was before the courts.

He told the hearing a trial date had been fixed for October 2023.

Diego Costa Silva, 32, an unemployed professional driver who is also a Brazilian national, was charged on November 6 last with his wife’s murder.

Dr Keane granted the application by gardai to adjourn the inquest until after the conclusion of criminal proceedings.

The coroner said the hearing was being opened and adjourned to allow a death certificate to be issued to Ms Camara de Campos’s family.
