Businessman Edison Brittes Junior (pictured), who is considered a suspect in the case, has since gone to Brazilian television to claim that he has found Freitas (24), who tried to attack Cristiana sexually and to take him off his 20- year old woman had to drag
Edison, 38, as well as his wife and daughter, have been detained on suspicion of being involved in death.
More details will come to the fore if the police confirm that they are interviewing the woman to determine what happened on the night the footballer died.
In the video the defendant claims that he felt that the victim raped his wife & # 39; and locked the door to his bedroom.
& # 39; When I went to the room, the door was locked, he claimed.
& # 39; He (Daniel) had entered the room and pulled out his clothes and locked the door. I broke open the door to my bedroom.
& # 39; When I opened the door he was on top of my wife. She screamed for help. & # 39;
But researchers said the & # 39; facts are not correct & # 39; and they are looking for three more suspects.
& # 39; Regardless of what happened between Daniel and the prime suspect's wife, the aggressor's reaction was disproportionate. He was cruelly beaten and killed, "said detective Amadeu Trevisan.
& # 39; It has not yet been proven whether the player had sex with the suspect's wife, "he continued.
We identify who was in the house with the main suspect that evening. We believe that three people came in the car with (Edison) and the player (in order) to kill Daniel. & # 39;
Correia's body was found on 27 October in São José dos Pinhais, in the south of Brazil. He was partially beheaded. His genitals were dismembered after his death.
According to the detective, the victim was beaten and tortured before it was placed in the trunk of the car.
The defendant's lawyer claims that the man, although accompanied by friends, has committed the crime alone.
According to investigators, the suspect lost control when he saw Daniel lying in the same bed as his wife, Cristiana, and reportedly defeated the player.
According to the police, about ten people witnessed hitting Daniel. An important witness testified on 31 October that the player was found with his underwear and t-shirt next to the woman.
Before his death, Freitas had reportedly been at the 18-year-old Allana Brittes party, amid rumors that he had a relationship with the teenager's mother, Cristiana.
The gruesome incident would have happened after the ten people who had been in a nightclub in Curitiba went to the house of the family to celebrate the daughter's 18th birthday on 26 October.
The suspect claimed that he lost control when he attacked Daniel.
I was terrified when I saw him with my wife. & # 39;
I took him out of the house, I do not know if he was awake, unconscious, if he had closed his eyes. & # 39;
After the attack the suspect said that he put the body of the football player in the trunk of the car and took him outside with three friends.
He claimed that his friends were trying to stop him from committing the crime, "but they could not do it."
He reportedly used a knife to kill the player.
& # 39; I had a knife in the car, a small knife that I used in the car, that stays with the tool in the suitcase.
& # 39; I did not know I was going to do that, I was desperate. I looked in the trunk and saw what I had, & # 39; said the suspect.
A witness told the police that everyone at the house of the family was drinking and talking. According to the witness, Cristiana and Allana went to sleep and a few minutes later Daniel disappeared from the group.

According to police investigations, Daniel sent messages to a group of friends on WhatsApp, who said he was in the house of the birthday boy.
In a message sent at 8.09 am, he wrote to his friends: & # 39; I came to Curitiba … for a birthday party. & # 39;
Minutes later, at 8.17 pm, the player would have sent another message stating that he & # 39; the mother & # 39; would eat from the birthday boy and that Allana's father was there too.
Then, at 8.34 am, Daniel sent another text with the text: "I have eaten her".
The player reportedly sent two images in which he is standing next to Cristiana, who is asleep. Then he said goodbye and this was his last conversation with his friends.
According to the police, it is not yet known whether the player had sex with Junior's wife. The police also say that the circumstances in the run-up to death are unclear.
Three other suspects who are thought to have participated in hitting the footballer are still being hunted by detectives.
Midfielder Daniel was loaned by São Paulo to São Bento, a team that played for Serie B of the Brazilian championship. In 2017 he played for Coritiba.
