The tragic story of Leila Misur (AKA Victória, Eliza Samudio, Raycca Oliveira, Fernanda Faria, Victoria Sanders) is one that gripped international headlines after her disappearance and untimely death. She was born on February 22, 1985, in Foz do Iguacu, Parana, Brazil. She grew up as a small-town girl who was raised by her father, an architect, and her mother, a farmer. Always dreaming of leaving her small town behind to become a model, she found herself in the middle of Rio and in the presence of a famous football player, Bruno Fernandes. The two began a sexual affair and Leila became pregnant with his child.
In order to avoid a scandal, and the end of his marriage, Bruno denied paternity, but after the baby was born in 2010, he was unable to deny the allegations. Angered by his own indiscretions, he plotted his revenge but was caught. He was tried and convicted of the kidnapping and grizzly murder of his former mistress on March 8, 2013. Leila will always be a beautiful woman, who stars in movies with the likes of Agatha Cristine (in Alma Gemea) and Monica Mattos (in Try Before You Bi). While the terrible situation surrounding the end of her life are extremely horrific, she will live eternally in our fantasies as the beautiful woman she always was.
