SAO PAULO – Fabiane Niclotti, who was crowned Miss Brazil 2004, was found dead inside her apartment in Gramado, a city in Rio Grande do Sul state, but there were no signs of violence, police said Wednesday.
The 31-year-old model’s brother called police because she was not answering her telephone.
Police found Niclotti’s body on Tuesday night and there were no signs of forced entry or violence at her apartment, investigators said.
Niclotti competed in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant in Quito, but she did not win.
After the contest, she lived for several months in London, where she studied English.
Niclotti worked as a model and general manager of a clothing store.
