Cause Of Death

Jefferson Machado 44 was found dead on May 22, 2023. As Brazil’s acting community grapples with the sad discovery, authorities continue to solve the mystery surrounding the actor’s disappearance and subsequent death.

The beloved actor disappeared from his home in Rio de Janeiro on January 27, 2023, and was officially reported missing by the police on February 9.

According to his mother, Maria das Dores, she last spoke to her son on January 29, when he said he had gone to São Paulo for a job interview and was staying with a friend. Maria said, “He also said he dropped his mobile phone in the toilet, so he couldn’t make a video call.”

The final nail in the coffin that seemed to confirm something was wrong was when his cloud password was changed, and his location was disabled in February.

The family’s worst fears were confirmed when an NGO contacted them to report that their eight dogs had been abandoned at their home in Rio de Janeiro.

Authorities said they are now investigating the man after the actor’s remains were found bound and wrapped in a wooden coffin buried six feet under the yard of a Campo Grande home. The apartment was reportedly rented to an unknown suspect who was seen entering the apartment about a month ago. Authorities revealed that the suspect knew Machado.

The property where Jefferson Machado’s body was found was owned by a woman who told police she rented an outbuilding to the man.
