"She died with a smile on her face. Maybe she knew something we didn't."

May 18, 2011; Maria has now been recognized as the World's Oldest Person. See Guinness World Records.
We could not have completed this case without the rigorous assistance of Prof. Cassio Turra, a professional demographer and our GRG International Correspondent from Brazil, who traveled from the capital of his state of Minas Gerais (Belo Horizonte) to Maria's small town (Carangola) by car for six hours at great personal effort to record the necessary documents in (archaic) handwritten Portuguese with the help of a local Notary Public.
Credit must also be given to Gabriel Ainsworth, who located the family contact information and informed them about applying for the GWR title by contacting the GRG to validate the claim.
This is the first time since 2005 that a sitting titleholder (Ms. Besse Cooper of Monroe, GA; USA in this case) was overturned by someone still living.
This is also the first time a Brazilian has been granted the Guinness title, despite many suspicious claims from BRAZIL in the past that were subsequently rejected as age exaggerations following careful scrutiny by GRG International Correspondents.
