Where is Ana Carolina Oliveira Now?
We are starting with Ana Carolina Oliveira, the mother of Isabella Nardoni and a woman of immense inner strength and resilience. Despite the decade and a half that has gone by after the death of her first child, she continues to hold her in her heart. While heartbroken by the tragedy, she also became determined to become a mother once more and has since gotten married. As of writing, she is mother to two beautiful children, Miguel and Maria Fernanda, who are, as of writing, 7 and 3, respectively.
Additionally, Carolina is popular on the internet due to her continued support of movements that might stop similar incidents like the one involving Isabella. Though she has over 258K followers on Instagram, Carolina likes to preserve the privacy of her family as much as possible. In April 2023, she also shared a moving post celebrating that day on which her oldest would have turned 21 had the circumstances been different.
Where is Alexandre Nardoni Now?
Given his conviction as a guilty party in the case of Isabella Nardoni, her father, Alexandre Nardoni, continues to remain in prison. The man in question was sentenced to jail for 31 years, one month, and ten days for her death on March 27, 2010. Additionally, he was also asked to serve eight months of concurrent prison time for alleged tampering with a crime scene, given the attempts to clean blood splatters in his apartment. However, since 2019, Alexandre has been shifted to a semi-open regime and has been serving his sentence under that system.
Where is Anna Carolina Jatobá Now?
Anna Carolina Jatobá is the second wife of Alexandre Nardoni and was stepmother to Isabella Nardoni.

In the case of the murder of Isabella, she was also considered a guilty party and was convicted on March 27, 2010. As part of her punishment, she was imprisoned for a period of 26 years and eight months. Similarly to her husband, Jatobá was also asked to spend eight months in prison concurrently with her previous sentencing due to attempts of crime scene tampering. Since June 2023, she has been shifted to an open regime, which allows her to spend her daytime outside, which can be utilized to work a day job, though Jatobá has to spend her nights at a court-designated address.
