The director of the Cassovia shopping centre in Košice, Barnabáš Farkaš, was found murdered on Monday, June 10. He was reportedly killed in Hungary and his body dismembered and buried in a forest close to the municipality of Bohdanovce in Slovakia, near Košice.
The eastern-Slovak Korzár daily reported on June 12 that Farkaš, who lived in the Hungarian village of Tornyosnémeti, close to the Slovak border, went missing on June 6. Hungarian police have arrested two Slovaks who, according to Slovak police, have confessed to the crime. The initial search was conducted by Hungarian police, as Farkaš’ BMW X6 was found on a road edge in Tornyosnémeti, with its doors open, and blood inside. Hungarian police later informed their Slovak counterparts where Farkaš’ body might be buried, Sme wrote.
