SPECIAL images show the moment when a murder suspect flees an apartment building where a woman was later found dead.
Sandra Maria de Sousa Silva was discovered two days after the images were taken.
Concerned neighbors hired a locksmith to break into the apartment in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, after hearing the child cry continuously.
Inside, they found the young barber dead on her bed and her eight-month-old baby in her bed.
Police suspect the victim was murdered by the man in the photo, who is believed to be her boyfriend.
According to reports, the victim’s body had been violently attacked with wounds to her face and head, apparently caused by a blade knife.
The baby, who apparently had not been fed for at least two days, was rescued and taken to a local hospital for medical care.
The baby had bruises on her body and showed signs of dehydration and malnutrition.
Police believe the tracks were the result of desperate efforts to get her out of the crib.
Authorities say they are now investigating the hairdresser’s death as a femicide and suspect her Mexican friend of committing the murder.
The suspect – later named Daniel Ospina Garcia – was seen on July 22 by neighbors leaving the victim’s apartment with a packed bag.
At the time of writing, he is still at large.
