Police arrested a man suspected of bottle-throwing in the act
‘Gabriela has always been my light, my life, my girl; A fighter since she was little with health problems, she fought until the last moment in the ICU,’ said her mother, Dilcilene dos Santos. Santiago was detained at the scene, police said. He appeared in court on Monday and was charged with manslaughter, according to police chief Cesar Saad. “We have several cell phone images, and we are using the facial recognition system so that other supporters can be identified, so that other people who were in the fight can be identified,” Saad said during a news conference. Police said Palmeiras fans were waiting outside gate ‘A’ of the stadium when they saw two Flamengo fans.
The tension broke out when a group of Palmeiras fans were chasing the two fans, when Santiago reacted by throwing the bottle that hit Anelli. Another fan was treated for a non-life-threatening injury. Police officers responded to the incident with pepper spray and stun grenades to disperse the two groups. The smoke caused play to be stopped on two occasions. Palmeiras issued a statement offering condolences to Anelli’s family and condemning the fan violence that he says tarnished the image of the sport. “We cannot accept that a 23-year-old girl is the victim of barbarism in an environment that she should be entertaining,” the team said. “We express our solidarity with the Palmeirense family and demand speed in the investigation of this crime, which hurts our reason for being and compromises the image of Brazilian soccer.”
