The number of possible explanations for the death of prominent lawyer Ernest Valko is narrowing, according to a statement by the director of the special department of the General Prosecutor's Office, Peter Šufliarsky, on April 1. He told the TASR newswire that investigators are continuing to work intensively on the case and confirmed that murder remains the likely theory at the moment.
The investigation is now being supervised by a specially-assigned prosecutor. Valko was shot to death in the late hours of November 8 in his house in Limbach near Bratislava. The police have examined the crime scene five times, finding 107 clues, TASR wrote.
