A young woman died after being attacked in Bratislava.

The police found a 34-year-old English teacher in the Bratislava port on November 11, with numerous bruises. The rescuers were trying to resuscitate her, but in vain, as the police informed on Facebook.

They have launched criminal prosecution for murder.

The information about the case was published only a week later; police claimed it was a tactic to prevent the perpetrator from discovering the police's actions.

"Thanks to this, the investigator can reach the culprit and receive important information," the police wrote.

Not much information revealed

The police did not disclose many details about the case. They did not comment on the woman’s injuries, autopsy results, nor how she got to the port. They did not say whether they have caught the perpetrator either.

Private broadcaster TV JOJ was the first to report on the case. It said the woman had very serious injuries on her ankles as if she had been beaten up and had probably been sexually assaulted.

The murdered woman came from Snina in eastern Slovakia but moved to Bratislava four years ago to teach at a language school. In the past, she worked as a model. She travelled across Asia and liked taking pictures.

She also studied at the Faculty of Arts of Comenius University in Bratislava.

"This tragedy strengthens in us the determination to say a strict no to all kinds of violence, including the violence on women," wrote the faculty's students and employees, as quoted by the Sme daily. "We expect this brutal crime will be clarified soon and the culprit will be punished."
