Did Viviane Obenauf kill her husband? The former Brazilian professional boxer has just been questioned about the death of her husband, Thomas, 61 years old. Main suspect in the case, she was taken into custody the last week of November. The couple married in January 2020 and the 34-year-old sportswoman occasionally shared family photos on Instagram.
The man was found dead in his apartment in Switzerland on October 19, which he shared with Viviane Obenauf in the city of Interlaken. She, recognized in the community since she won 14 of her 20 professional fights, opened a gym there and owned a restaurant.
As reported by the Swiss authorities, whose comments were reported by The Sun, the latter suffered “a violent assault”. He lost his life as a result of “massive wounds” inflicted with “a blunt weapon”. The victim was described in Blick’s columns by one of his friends as a man “who everyone can get along with” and who worked “with passion”.
Viviane Obenauf: a violent temper?
When Viviane Obenauf’s arrest made headlines, her ex-boyfriend spoke up. In the columns of Blick, the latter made it known that the boxer had already assaulted him during their relationship. He claimed that she had “hit him directly in the face with her point three or four times” during an argument. “She always had two faces. It’s like flipping a switch,” he said. In 2016, while celebrating her 30th birthday in London, she was arrested at a nightclub for attacking a man who had made an inappropriate gesture towards her.
