The impact of this event has resonated throughout Brazil, generating a debate about domestic violence and the need to address this problem more effectively.

Human rights organizations have expressed concern and have urged the authorities to take firm measures.

In addition, Paixão told investigators that she had been beaten before setting Chapeta on fire and was acting in self defense.

This incident has also revived the debate about safety in public places, since the incident occurred in a fish market.

Store owners are now reviewing their safety protocols and considering additional measures.

They highlighted that Paixão’s version of events does not match what is shown on the video.

«What she says is not what the image shows. The image shows the victim sitting in a chair. She arrives, coldly, throws the liquid and sets him on fire,» the head of the Civil Police, Flávio Ferreira said.

Ferreira stated that she was not in any danger at the time of the attack.

«She was not at that moment in a vulnerable situation, she was not in a situation in which she would be imminently attacked,» he explained.

«On the contrary, as I said, he was sitting and posed no risk to her physical integrity at that moment,» he said.

This case has highlighted the urgent need to address domestic violence comprehensively and to strengthen mechanisms to prevent similar tragedies.
