Man arrested after Overwatch and Halo voice actor murdered in Brazil

Brazilian police have detained a man on suspicion of murdering Christiane Louise, a Brazilian voice actress known for parts such as Mercy in Overwatch and Cortana in Halo. Christiane Louise was 49 years old when she died on August 6, according to fellow voice actor Mário Tupinambá Filho.

The following is a computer translation of the picture text: “It is with a heavy heart that I announce Christiane Louise’s departure. Zinha, I will always adore you. “

Christiane Louise has been a voice actress and dubber since 1994, and was the Portuguese voice actor for Mercy in Overwatch, Cortana in Halo, Sivir in League of Legends, Bayonetta, and dozens of other roles, in addition to numerous film appearances. The following tribute video was uploaded by Dublapédia Brasil, a site devoted to voice dubs, and features some of her most well-known parts.

Pedro Paulo Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa, a 27-year-old suspect, was apprehended by Brazilian murder investigators on Friday, August 13th. On July 22, this year, he was suspected of killing Christiane Louise at her residence in Rio’s south. Multiple stab wounds were the cause of death.

Christiane Louise normally lived alone, but had been sheltering Pedro Paulo in the weeks preceding her murder, according to a story in the Brazilian daily O Globo. When questioned about her absence, her murderer said he hadn’t talked to her since June 17 and that she had travelled to Mangaratiba, a suburb of Rio de Janeiro, with a lover and planned to be gone for 15 days.

Pedro Paulo admitted to the crime after additional questioning, but claimed he was acting in self-defense because Christiane Louise was “possessed by the devil.” The murderer was allegedly helped conceal the corpse on Grumari Beach by his mother, Eliane Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa, and another unidentified accomplice, according to the police. The accused’s mother has yet to be apprehended.

Fans of Christiane Louise’s work and the games in which she featured have been leaving condolences, with the most popular being Mercy’s scream of “heroes never die” after reviving her friends. Frank O’Conner, previously of Bungie, was one of the gaming industry leaders who paid homage.
