German police have arrested a man suspected of the rape and murder of Bulgarian television journalist Viktoria Marinova, Bulgarian officials said Wednesday, reports BSS/AFP.
But they said that, at least for now, the killing does not appear linked to her work as a journalist.
The body of 30-year-old Marinova — who presented a current affairs talk programme called “Detector” for the small TVN television channel — was discovered on a riverside path in the northern Bulgarian town of Ruse on Saturday.
Authorities said she died from blows to the head and suffocation. She was also raped. The Bulgarian suspect was picked up late Tuesday at the request of Bulgarian authorities, Interior Minister Mladen Marinov told a news conference.
“We have enough proof linking this person to the scene of the crime,” he said. German police confirmed a 20-year-old man was arrested in the town of Stade near Hamburg on suspicion of raping, robbing and killing Marinova.
