Suspects named in bank murders

Police investigating two murders they believe were connected to embezzlement at the collapsed Devín Banka have named five suspects for one of the murders, all of whom are already in prison.

The culprit for the second murder is still unknown. In both cases the bodies of the victims were buried in other people's graves.

Anton B. was murdered in August 2002. His body was found in a cemetery in Veľká Slavkova in February. The second victim, Štefan Holub, was murdered some time between September and October 2002 while under investigation for embezzlement at Devín Banka.
