Missing soap star found dead, buried in trunk in backyard – rest in peace

4 months after going missing, the soap opera star has been found. And it's not good news.


After four months, the body of Brazilian actor Jefferson Machado, best known for his role in the soap opera Reis, who was last seen on January 27, 2023 and was reported missing on February 9 after his dogs were found abandoned at his Rio de Janeiro home, was found stuffed inside a wooden chest buried six-feet beneath the backyard of a house in the area of Campo Grande, Rio de Janeiro.

As of now, the suspect of this horrific crime is one of Machado’s friends who was renting the property where his body was located, but no arrests have been made.

The news of his tragic passing was reported by his lawyer Jairo Magalhaes Advogados who shared a statement with the public which read, “It is with regret that I share the sad news of the passing of actor Jeff Machado, whose body was found with signs of strangulation.”

“His arms were tied behind his head and buried in a trunk that is very similar to the ones in his own house,” Advogados added.

The actor spoke to his mother on January 29, two days after he was last seen, but no one heard from him ever since. What’s most, shortly after he went missing, the password of his iCloud was changed and his location deactivated. In the meantime, his family and friends were receiving text messages from his phone number from someone who tried to impersonate him.

“Jefferson was coldly and brutally murdered by envious, evil and, of course, unscrupulous people,” family friend Cintia Hilsendeger wrote on the actor’s Instagram account, according to the New York Post.
