Police arrested Pedro Paulo Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa in connection with the murder of Christiane Louise. Vasconcellos da Costa has admitted to the murder in Rio de Janeiro, but he allegedly acted in self-defense. It is reported that Vasconcellos da Costa's motive was an intent to keep the actress’ belongings and inheritance after her demise.

According to the police, Christiane Louise was murdered in her own apartment with a broken chalice. The suspect allegedly cut the Brazillian voice actress’s leg and her throat before hiding her body. The suspect allegedly murdered Louise several days before her body was found. The suspect had the help of his mother Eliane Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa in the crime. Several of Louise's possessions were found at the suspect's mother's home, but she remains at large.

According to the Brazillian police report, the suspect and his mother spent two days with the corpse of Christiane Louise inside their house before hiding the body. The body was found by police 2-3 days after the murder took place. In total, Louise had been dead for eight days before the news was initially reported on Instagram by her co-worker, Mário Tupinambá Filho.

The case is currently ongoing so Pedro Paulo Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa is currently a suspect, but he was allegedly defending himself when the attack took place. According to a source familiar with the two, he and Christiane Louise met at a psychiatric clinic in 2017 and since then had become friends. It's currently unclear how Vasconcellos da Costa planned to secure all of Louise's possessions and inheritance.

Several Halo, League of Legends, and Overwatch fans responded to the news of ChristianeLouise's passing with sorrow and pain. A large majority of fans sent words of support to Louise's friends and family as they try to come to terms with her loss. Several Overwatch fans were quick to point out that heroes never die, something Mercy says when resurrecting fallen allies in Overwatch.
