Fresh video shows her constantly trying to keep man's head straight but now she may be caught out on a single detail as police tighten net on the incident in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A woman who brought her apparently dead uncle into a bank as a ploy to get a loan could be snared by authorities because of one crucial detail.

The man, identified as Paulo Roberto Braga, 68, did not of course sign any paperwork as he was dead when he entered the branch in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, according to police.

Employees at the branch were suspicious of the actions of the woman, Erika de Souza Vieira Nunes, who said she was the corpse's niece, and called the authorities after challenging her on the state of the man and recording the srtange encounter.

She has since been charged with theft through fraud and vilification of a corpse, and her whole defence rests on her claim that the gentleman was alive when he entered the bank.

"He started to feel sick, and then he had all these procedures. All of this will be clarified and we believe in Mrs Erika’s innocence."

However, one medical detail could catch her out. According to the head of police in the area, cadaveric marks indicate that Paulo would not have died sitting down.

Livores are accumulations of blood resulting from the interruption of circulation which, in his case, accumulated on the back of his neck, indicating that he must have died lying down.

If Paulo had died on the wheelchair, there would have been bookmarks on his legs. But the initial examination did not find any stains on the lower limbs.

"It is not possible to say the exact moment of death. It was found by Samu (medics) that there was cadaveric livor.

"This only happens from the moment of death, but is only noticeable around two hours after death," explained the police chief.

In addition to maintaining that Paulo arrived at the bank alive, Nunes' lawyer stated that the client has a psychiatric report that was presented at the police station.

"Mrs. Erika undergoes psychological treatment, she takes controlled medication. She underwent bariatric treatment and needs psychological treatment."

Asked if Erika might not have realized that Paulo Roberto was dead at the bank branch, she said: "I believe she was freaking out at that moment because of the medications. She was visibly altered."
