Model turned gang boss ordered hit on husband killed at sons birthday party

A model living a life of luxury is the leader of a gang that killed her husband, police allege.

Ricardo Marodin was reportedly shot dead during his son’s birthday party on November 7 by criminals police believed worked under him.

Since launching an investigation into the dad's death, detectives have turned their suspicions towards his influencer wife Camila Marodin who was arrested in the coastal town of Matinhos in Parana, Brazil on Friday.

Camila had previously told the authorities that her husband was most likely killed in a tragic case of mistaken identity, but she is now thought to have sanctioned his murder and three days later, the deaths of two former police officers.

She was reportedly caught on her way back home from her mother’s house where she allegedly hid a Glock pistol that the police later recovered.

Police spokesperson Colonel Barroso said the arrest was already planned but had to be brought forward after the deaths of Ricardo and former policemen Thiago Cesar Carvalho and Guilherme Antonio da Costa, who were killed in the neighbourhood of Cajuru in the Parana state capital Curitiba, three days after Ricardo.

Barroso added: “The Military Police launched Operation Ostentacao (Ostentation), which follows investigations and follow-ups during about a year of work carried out by the Military Police's intelligence department.

“During this investigation, we found financial payments in Camila’s account of over BRL 1.3 million (GBP 177,481).

According to the news site Em Tempo, a court froze the money in Camila’s account in addition to 13 properties, some of them high-end, valued at BRL 3 million (GBP 409,800) that are believed to be owned by the criminal gang.
