The firearms that may be linked to the murders carried out by Miroslav Marček have been discovered by the police near Kolárovo (Nitra Region), the Tvnoviny.sk news website reported.
Marček is one of the suspects in the case of the investigative journalist Ján Kuciak's murder. He recently confessed to murdering the journalist and his fiancée.

Guns in two rivers
The suspect took police investigators to the sites where he got rid of the weapons.
The gun, which is believed to have killed Molnár, was reportedly found in the Little Danube River on April 16. It was manufactured in Germany, Tvnoviny.sk wrote.
On the same day, the police also found a gun barrel, which may be related to Kuciak's case, in the Váh River near Kolárovo.
The police will continue searching on April 17, despite strong currents and a sandy riverbed. In the meantime, the firearms will be examined, Tvnoviny.sk wrote.
