Passersby alerted the local authorities after they discovered her disfigured corpse with her womb ripped apart from her body in Portal dos Lagos, reported Daily Mail. The area is reportedly surrounded by evangelical churches of different denominations. A number of coins were found next to her mutilated body and she was wearing a pair of flip-flops and only a T-shirt. Police said they were looking into a theory that Karolin may have been sacrificed as part of some kind of a “macabre ritual.”

Police also immediately informed her ex-husband about her death and called him to identify the body. They were trying to determine whether the victim’s boyfriend or partner played a role in her grisly killing. "She met a kind of tough gang. I even moved away from her a little bit because of that", a friend told local news site UOL. "But I don't know what happened. She was really nice, she didn't have a bad time. Everyone liked her."

However, one of Karolin's friends claimed that on the day of the incident, she saw her inside a black car around midnight. Her friend's claim was further backed up by other witnesses who also confirmed seeing what appeared to be the same vehicle near the crime scene at around 3 am the same day. The police are conducting an investigation concerning the incident and are waiting for a follow-up analysis from the Legal Medical Institute and the Institute of Criminalistics. The incident was registered as a homicide at the Mogi Guacu General Investigations Police Station.
