FRAMINGHAM – Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Framingham Chief of Police Lester Baker have confirmed that Edvardo Gomes-Da Silva, 40 of Framingham has been charged in connection with fatally stabbing his wife, Neiriane Pereira-Da Silva, 30 of Framingham at their Taylor Street home last night.

On July 17, 2022, at approximately 10:30 p.m., Framingham Police received a 911 call from a multi-family home on Taylor Street. The caller reported that they had observed blood on the stairway to the third floor of the building and were concerned someone might be in need of assistance inside that apartment. Upon arrival police located the victim and the defendant suffering from apparent stab wounds. Neiriane Pereira-Da Silva was transported to MetroWest Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. Edvardo Gomes Da Silva was transported to a Boston area hospital where he remains hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The preliminary investigation suggests that the defendant allegedly stabbed the victim multiple times before injuring himself with the knife. An autopsy conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner today determined that Neiriane Pereira-Da Silva died as a result of multiple sharp force injuries.

According to a Brazilian publication, the couple have a 7-year-old daughter and had a troubled relationship.

The arraignment in this matter has not yet been scheduled.

This is an open and ongoing investigation being conducted by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office and Framingham Police. The prosecutors assigned to this case are Joseph Gentile and Maren Schrader. The Victim Witness Advocate is Lesia Schymonowytsch.
