Young Danbury mom from Brazil ki1led in murder-su1cide was a 'great person,' friend says

Mellyssa Pereira DaCosta, who was ki1led on Nov. 20 in a murder-su1cide, was well-known in the city's Brazilian community, a friend said.

DANBURY— The local Brazilian community is mourning the death of a 21-year-old mother who was the victim of a murder-su1cide last week.

Mellyssa Pereira DaCosta, who came to Danbury from Brazil when she was pregnant with her 1-year-old child, was ki1led Nov. 20 at a Griffing Avenue residence where she had been living.

Lucio "China" DeSouza, who owns the Danbury Brazilian community newspaper, Jornal Comunidade News, said Pereira DaCosta was well-known and well-liked.

"She knew everybody," he said.

Pereira DaCosta worked in Danbury at the Portuguese Cultural Center, which includes a bar, restaurant and catering hall, DeSouza said. He often talked with the 21-year-old when he came in after playing soccer.

"She always treated people very nicely," DeSouza said. "She was a great person, she'd help everybody. She was a very good friend to the people she worked with."

Danbury's Brazilian community was shocked when Pereira DaCosta was ki1led. Her child's father, 28-year-old Dheraldy Mendes Caldeira, stabbed her in the head and neck before turning the knife on himself, police said. Their child was present when the incident unfolded, police said.

The two met in Brazil when she was 18 or 19 and Mendes Caldeira told her aunt that he wanted to take the young woman to the United States where his father lived, DeSouza said. By that point, she was pregnant with Mendes Caldeira's child, he said.

Brazilian newspapers said Pereira DaCosta was studying while living in Danbury. At the time of her death, she and her child were living on the third floor of the same Griffing Avenue three-family house where Mendes Caldeira lived, DeSouza said.

The mayor of the small Brazilian town where Pereira DaCosta grew up is helping to have her body brought back to the country so she can be buried by her family, DeSouza said.

"Everyone is very emotional in Brazil," he said. "She grew up in a small town."

The couple's child was unharmed in the stabbings and is in the custody of the state Department of Children and Families.

"Thankfully, the child is safe and is in the care and custody of the department," DCF spokesperson Peter Yazbak said in a statement on Monday. "It’s our priority to place children with relatives or those with who they have a familial relationship whenever possible. We pursue all potential family placements for children whether that’s in state, out of state or even with family residing outside of the country."
