When 23-year-old Beatriz Lebre failed to show up to present a college paper, friends were immediately concerned. The search commenced and sadly her body was discovered a week later, in the Tejo River. Beatriz was well-liked, kind and always ready to help others, who would want to kill her? Her friends and family were shocked when police arrested a fellow student, and close friend of Beatriz’s, Rúben Couto. What went so wrong between them that she ended up bludgeoned to death and thrown into the river?
