Why did Joao murder Veronica Goncalves?

The incident was described as “savage, vicious, and unprovoked” by investigators. At 1:00 pm, on Wednesday afternoon, officers were called to 342 Crescent St. on the city’s East Side in response to a complaint of an unconscious person.

When the police arrived at the Crescent Street residence, they saw a woman lying on the ground. The woman was bleeding in her driveway and they discovered her struggling on the ground with injuries on the head and face. Later, she died on the spot. She was identified as Veronica Goncalves.

Cruz stated that the Goncalves and her alleged killer “were not strangers” and that police believe the two had been dating for some time before the Goncalves’ death.

Cruz added, “This appears to have been a targeted attack and not a random act of violence. That’s pretty much where I’m at right now. This is a savage, brutal incident. This woman did not deserve this,”

Pedro Rosario’s statement:

An inquiry is still being conducted. The victim’s nephew, Pedro Rosario, told the media that the family is in shock.

“She was a very hard-working, independent, strong-minded woman, kind-hearted – always looking out for her kids. She was very loved and as you can see, there are people here, neighbors, not only family, but a lot of neighbors and friends are here as well, supporting us. So she was a very well-rounded woman. And of course, a lot of us, I am still so shocked to see exactly what happened.”

Goncalves, who’s been in this country not for so long, only been here for a couple of years, said Rosario. “We’re just trying to put the pieces together. We’re all in a state of disbelief that someone would do this to her.” “As you can see, we have no answer.”, he added.

In addition, Rosario told that Goncalves was killed in front of her two-year-old grandchild; however, authorities have not yet confirmed Rosario’s claims. Investigator confirmed that Correia was Goncalves’ ex-boyfriend. Goncalves was driving her 2-year-old grandchild back from picking up her daughter from work.

It appears that she was attacked when she was in her car, Rosario added. And in the backseat was her granddaughter. The granddaughter was not physically wounded, he continued, and she is with family, but she is really shaken.

“Preliminarily, this appears to have been a targeted attack and not a random act of violence,” Cruz said.

The judgment in the afterlife will be far harsher and cheaper on the living taxpayer. Win-win all around. May she Rest in Peace and he suffers for all eternity.
