Brazil – Britt Blom, a Dutch woman who has been missing since last December 10, when she left her home in São João de Merita, Baixada Fluminense, has been convicted of manslaughter.

She was tried for the death of Cláudio Theodor da Silva in a car accident in 2011 in São Paulo and was sentenced to two years and eight months in a semi-open regime. She admitted to the authorities that she was drunk at the time of the collision.

The accident happened after Britt left the dance. It collided strongly with the rear of the motorcycle of Claudio Theodor, who died at the scene of the accident. She admitted to the officers who responded that she was drunk, and she tried to justify the collision by claiming that she did not see the motorcycle and that it suddenly appeared on the highway she was driving on.

At the time of the accident, Britt was living in São Paulo and had a daughter, who still lives in São Paulo with her father. During the process, she moved to Rio de Janeiro. She first lived in Copacabana, but later moved to São João de Meriti, in Baixada Fluminense. According to friends, the choice was due to the fact that rents are cheaper in the region.

The judgment convicting the Dutch woman came out at the end of 2017, but it cannot be carried out. In 2020, Justice reported that “the clerk of the court confirmed the impossibility of full compliance with the law, given that the address of the accused is located in a very dangerous place in Rio de Janeiro, due to the presence of armed drug-oriented groups. human trafficking”.

Civil police are investigating the involvement of drug dealers from Complexo da Pedreira, in the northern zone of Rio, in the disappearance of Britt Blom, a Dutch woman. On the last 10th, she left home, in São João de Merita, to settle a work commitment and has not been seen since. The investigation is being led by the Baixada Fluminense Police Homicide Station (DHBF), which is taking new steps this week to keep the case confidential.

Last week, agents executed warrants at the house where the Dutch woman lives and seized personal documents and electronic materials, such as computers and cell phones. All material was sent for expert examination, which defined the direction of the investigation.

This week, one of the police actions should be the reconstruction of the Dutch woman’s steps on the day of her disappearance. In a statement given to a specialist last week, the friend said Britt Blom left home to deal with a work issue and sent a text saying it would be a “quick thing”.


Britt, 36, was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and has lived in Brazil for over 14 years. When she arrived in the country, she lived for a while in São Paulo, where she had a 13-year-old daughter, who lives with her father in that city, until she moved to Rio de Janeiro.

As soon as he came here, he lived in Copacabana, but, according to friends, he moved to Baixada, because the rental prices would be lower. She worked as a text translator and supplemented her income by renting properties she owned in the city of São Paulo.

Before the DHBF took over the case, the friend even filed a missing persons report online, but the Special Police Department for Tourism Support (Deat) reported that it was incomplete.
