Man arrested for killing Halo, Overwatch Voice actress Christiane Louise
A man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Christiane Louise, a voice actor who played Cortana in Halo and Mercy in Overwatch.
The dubbing community has just lost one of its prominent members and a man has been arrested for his murder. Christiane Louise was known to many gamers, as she voiced characters in several franchises such as Halo and Monitoring.
Brazilian actress Christiane Louise was best known in the gaming community for her voice work as Cortana in Halo, Mercy in Monitoring, Hellen Lovejoy in The simpsons, and Sivir from League of Legends. Christiane Louise died on August 6, 2021, according to one of her colleagues. The Brazilian voiceover was 49 years old and was allegedly murdered in the city of Rio de Janeiro.
Police arrested Pedro Paulo Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa in connection with the murder of Christiane Louise. Vasconcellos da Costa admitted to the murder in Rio de Janeiro, but he allegedly acted in self-defense. It is reported that Vasconcellos da Costa’s motive was an intention to keep the property and legacy of the actress after her disappearance.
According to police, Christiane Louise was murdered in her own apartment with a broken chalice. The suspect allegedly cut the Brazilian actress’ leg and throat before hiding her body. The suspect allegedly murdered Louise several days before her body was found. The suspect had the help of his mother Eliane Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa in the crime. Several of Louise’s belongings were found at the home of the suspect’s mother, but she is still at large.
According to the Brazilian police report, the suspect and his mother spent two days with the corpse of Christiane Louise inside their home before hiding the body. The body was found by police 2-3 days after the murder. In total, Louise had been dead for eight days before the news was initially reported on Instagram by her colleague, Mário Tupinambá Filho.
The case is currently ongoing and Pedro Paulo Gonçalves Vasconcellos da Costa is currently a suspect, but he reportedly defended himself at the time of the attack. According to a source close to the two, he and Christiane Louise met in a psychiatric clinic in 2017 and have since become friends. It is currently unclear how Vasconcellos da Costa planned to secure all of Louise’s property and legacy.
Many Halo, League of Legends, and Monitoring fans responded to the news of ChristianeLouise’s passing with sadness and pain. A large majority of fans sent words of support to Louise’s friends and family as they tried to come to terms with her loss. Many Monitoring fans were quick to point out that heroes never die, which Mercy says as she resurrects fallen allies in Monitoring.
