While initially Borges’ death appeared to be a natural passing, local police chief Gustavo Barcelos, acknowledges that they are investigating the circumstances.
“There is awareness that the victim may have ingested narcotic substances and alcoholic beverages,” the officer emphasized. Borges’ boyfriend, who was with her at the time of the first cardiac arrest, has been questioned but later freed.
