A woman brutally murdered in her apartment had just begun a new job, the Irish Mirror has learned.
Fabiole Camara died from severe injuries to her head and neck at her fifth-floor flat near Charlestown Shopping Centre on St Margaret’s Road in Finglas, North Dublin, in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The 32-year-old from Brazil had only just celebrated becoming a cryptocurrency customer support analyst at a company last month.
Tragic Fabiole arrived in Ireland in December 2016 with her husband Diego Costa, after they wed in July of that year.
Both attended the same institution to study English.
She had previously worked as a child minder and at Fleet Street Hotel in the capital before she gained her new position.
Those who knew Fabiole within the Brazilian community were stunned at the news of her death.
One said: “This is a real shock, I can’t believe it. She was in love and happy.”
Husband Diego previously declared his own love for her with a poem on social media.
One line of it read: “If I cry, cheer me up, but if I smile, it’s for you.”
Shocked locals have continued to leave flowers at the scene.
One handwritten note read: “Rest in peace, angel”, while another added: “May the light of Heaven shine upon you. May you rest in peace.”
The Irish Mirror understands that Fabiole’s family in Sao Paulo has been informed of her death and they are said to be “heartbroken”.
Efforts are now under way to repatriate her body back to her native country.
Her remains underwent a postmortem examination and the body can be released over the coming days.
A source said: “This poor woman died in shocking circumstances.
“But it’s compounded by the fact that her own family are on the other side of the world. It’s an incredibly sad case.”
A man arrested at the scene is being quizzed at Finglas Garda Station on suspicion of murder.
A number of knives were seized at the scene including the suspected murder weapon.
The main line of inquiry for gardai is the mental state of the man in custody.
He had been arrested for his own safety only days beforehand after being spotted acting in an erratic manner in Dublin city centre.
The man was detained after coming to the attention of gardai while dressed only in a pair of shorts on O’Connell Street and later released from custody after he was examined by a doctor. A number of items were removed from the scene and the
Garda Technical Bureau completed an examination of the property.
