Woman Wheels Corpse Into Bank And Tries To Get Him To 'Sign Off' A Loan In Her Name

By maks in News On 17th April 2024

In a bizarre turn of events, she entered the bank with the corpse, propping up his head while trying to have him "sign off" on a loan for herself.

The bank staff, noticing the man's unusually pale appearance, grew suspicious.

Employees at the bank began recording the unusual duo, and soon, they called for both an ambulance and the police.

As the situation unfolded, she was seen using her hand to keep the deceased man's head upright, addressing him as "Uncle," and insisting:

"You have to sign it. I can't sign for you."

The footage captured her instructing the dead man to hold his pen firmly.

She placed the pen in his fingers and encouraged him to sign a document at the bank branch located in Bangu, a neighborhood in the western part of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


A bank employee challenged her actions, saying: "I don't think this is legal. He doesn't look well. He's very pale." 

To which she simply responded: "He's like that."

She then addressed the deceased man, saying: "If you're not well, I can take you to the hospital. Do you want to go back to the hospital again?"

The video also showed the dead man's head swaying back and forth before she took hold of his neck with her left hand from behind.

She pressed him: "Sign here and stop giving me a headache," but unsurprisingly, received no response from the man she pretended to converse with.

This surreal incident occurred yesterday afternoon.

When paramedics arrived at the scene, they confirmed that the deceased, identified as 68-year-old Paulo Roberto Braga, had died a few hours earlier.

The woman who brought him into the bank, Erika de Souza Vieira Nunes, was arrested on the spot. She informed the police that she was his niece and also acted as his carer.

Authorities are investigating the possibility of an organized fraud scheme.

They are reviewing CCTV footage from both inside and outside the bank to determine if Ms. Nunes was acting alone or had accomplices.

The results of an autopsy to determine Mr. Braga's cause of death are still pending.

Police Chief Fabio Luiz stated after her arrest that Mr. Braga was indeed deceased before being brought into the bank.


He added that the investigation would continue to involve other family members to ascertain whether Mr. Braga was alive at the time the loan was secured and its origination date.

Local news outlets reported that the loan amount was 17,000 Brazilian Reais, which is approximately $3,200.
