Woman accused of wheeling dead ‘uncle’ into bank to sign loan

Ammon News - The woman arrives at the bank pushing a man in a wheelchair. His eyes are closed; his head lolls wildly.

“Uncle Paulo, are you listening?” Érika de Souza Vieira Nunes asks. “You need to sign it. If you don’t sign it, there’s no way. I can’t sign it for you.”

But Paulo Roberto Braga doesn’t respond, a video recorded Tuesday shows.

The 68-year-old man is dead.

In an incident that has gone viral here, police say Nunes, 42, took Braga’s body to a bank branch in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday afternoon to secure a loan of about $3,250.

“Anyone watching the video can tell he was dead,” Fábio Souza, the lead police investigator, told the television network Globonews. “Can you imagine her? she was touching him. She knew he was dead.”

Now Nunes is charged with theft by fraud and abusing a corpse. Police now are working to determine her relationship with Braga and how he died, Souza said, and looking for the person who drove them to the scene.
