Jefferson Machado Wiki – Jefferson Machado Biography
Jefferson Machado, a Brazilian soap opera actor who went missing in January, was discovered dead inside a trunk in Rio de Janeiro.
On Monday, authorities said Jefferson Machado’s body was tied up and packed into a wooden trunk that was buried six feet beneath the concrete floor of an outhouse in the western Rio de Janeiro district of Campo Grande. Authorities used fingerprints to authenticate the 44-year-old’s body on Wednesday. According to Brazilian news station G1, the property belongs to a woman who informed police she rented the outhouse to a man who police have identified as a suspect but has not named.
According to R7 news, Machado, who lived in Rio de Janeiro, is thought to have known the individual who rented out the property where his body was discovered and was observed entering it a month ago. The trunk had to be extracted from the pit by nine people, including seven Civil Police officers. According to a family lawyer, the trunk belonged to Machado and had previously been removed from his home. ‘Jefferson was ruthlessly and brutally murdered by envious, wicked, and, of course, dishonest people,’ a friend of the family, Cintia Hilsendeger, wrote on the actor’s Instagram account.

Machado’s most recent acting role was in the Record TV serial opera ‘Reis,’ which aired in 2022. He hadn’t been seen since January 27 and had been declared missing on February 9. Machado’s family heard of his disappearance after a non-governmental organization contacted them to inform them that his eight canines had been abandoned at his Rio de Janeiro house. Each of the dogs had its tracking device; two of them died, while the other six are being treated at a veterinary clinic. His 73-year-old mother, Maria das Dores, told the Brazilian newspaper Noticias do Dia that she last spoke with Machado on January 29 and that he had come to So Paulo to interview for a job and was sleeping at a friend’s house.
She became concerned when she stopped receiving calls from him and only received misspelled text messages. He also stated that he dropped his cell phone in the toilet and as a result, he was unable to make a video call,’ Das Dores said. The family became increasingly worried when his cloud password was changed, and his location was deactivated in February. As recently as last week, Das Dores was still holding on to hope that Machado was still alive and said his disappearance had taken a toll on the family, including another son and a grandson.
