The detained Slovak man who allegedly was prepared to shoot and then eat a Swiss national on May 10 was identified as Matej Č. who lived with his wife and two daughters in a family house in Sokoľ in eastern Slovakia, the TASR newswire reported.

The detained man is a computer expert and hobby shooter, the Korzár daily wrote, adding that he had moved to an upscale part of Sokol a few years ago and did not stand out in any way, according to neighbours and other villagers. His colleagues from the hobby shooting club described him as rather placid and inconspicuous man, the newspaper reported.

Police made search of his home and found items connected with the planned murder, the spokesperson of the Police Presidium, Denisa Baloghová, said as reported by Korzár.

Currently the police are searching in the vicinity of his house and near the place where he had waited for the Swiss man, hoping to find more evidence. They already have found two pits dug in the ground. An investigator from the Office for Fight against Organised Crime accused the man of preparing an extraordinarily serious crime of premeditated murder of a foreign national and attempted murder of police officer.
