Investigators: New lead in Valko murder case

Valko was found shot dead in his house in Limbach, near Bratislava, in November 2010 by his ex-wife and daughter.

Head of National Anti-Crime Agency (NAKA) Daniel Goga told the Hospodárske Noviny daily that they could limit the investigation of the murder to a single version of events.

“After we check the new version, we will know – although maybe not 100-percent for sure – whether it was a robbery-murder, or not,” Goga said. He deemed the new information trustworthy, but refused to speculate on when the alleged perpetrator will be charged with a crime.
