A suspect linked to the slaying of Bulgarian investigative journalist Victoria Marinova has been arrested in Germany. Preliminary investigation shows that it was a “spontaneous” rape attack, according to Chief Prosecutor.
A man in his early 20s was arrested after DNA tests and other evidence linked him to the chilling crime, according to Bulgaria’s Interior Minister Mladen Marinov.
He identified the man as Severin Krasimov, who lived not far from the crime scene.
The perpetrator has been charged in absentia with rape and Bulgaria has already issued European arrest warrant. If proven guilty, the man could face anything from 25 years up to life imprisonment.
