Hugo was taken by agents of Bangu Presente, taken to the 34th DP (Bangu) and then taken by the PM to the Homicide Police Station, which investigates the case. Deputy Luiz Otávio Franco asked for the suspect’s arrest, which was ordered by Judge Isabel Teresa Pinto Coelho Diniz on duty.
Hugo’s lawyer, Ester Moreira, claims that her client went to the police after fearing for his life, as he would have received threats from the drug trade.

The lawyer also says that the man did not confess to the crime and that he and his ex-wife were being persecuted by the victim. Ester instructed the client to only speak in court.
Before committing the crime, the man who shot Jairo covered one of the train’s security cameras with blue tape. The police seized from Hugo a backpack with clothes and a roll of blue duct tape.

The Homicide Police Department investigates whether the murder of Jairo Jonathan was a crime of passion. He would have been threatened for allegedly getting involved with a married woman.
According to police, the suspect wore a mask and cap, and covered the wagon cameras with tape. Witnesses said he fired the shot and got off at the station just before the doors closed – information confirmed by footage from other cameras.
