On the morning of this Thursday, the environment next to Monte toboggan station is relatively calm, without the usual bustle of tourists, visitors and Madeiran people. This is because the trips of the toboggans between Monte and Livramento are suspended for the moment, following the homicide that took place late Wednesday afternoon, which killed Norberto Gouveia, president of the toboggan Association.
The Diario Noticias report on the scene and found an atmosphere of dismay, with employees in their usual outfits. Norberto’s colleagues refuse to talk about what has been at the origin of the crime.
The bar where these professionals usually concentrate was yesterday closed by police and this morning people are very afraid to talk about it.
