One month after the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová, the police returned to the forest close to the village of Veľká Mača (Trnava Region) on March 27.

The forest is close to the house where the couple was shot dead, the TVnoviny.sk website reported.

Dozens of police officers from the National Criminal Agency (NAKA), as well as the headquarters in Galanta and Trnava, were searching the forest, reportedly looking for a murder weapon. Some paths were sprayed with yellow and marked with arrows. It is possible the police officers were marking the potential route of the perpetrators, TVnoviny.sk wrote.
