FIRST SUSPECTED SERIAL KILLER IN MACEDONIA
The Police raised formal accusation against the first suspected serial killer in Macedonia, after clearing up the murder of the street foreign currency dealer Trajce Cocevski from Ohrid.
The man suspected of murdering Cocevski is his fellow-citizen L.R., 61, who admitted the murder committed on 13 April, 2008, the Police announced.
Two days later, Cocevski's body was found in the vicinity of a Struga's autocamping site.
In a search of L.R.'s house, the police found a rifle, knife, boots covered with blood and substantial amount of foreign money.
According to the Police, L.R. is suspected of having committed three more murders of street foreign currency dealers from Ohrid, including T.T., killed on 25 February, 1999; J.R., who went missing on 29 May, 2006 and S.S., killed on February, 2007.
L.R. knew the victims very well, as they all worked together in the Ohrid's factory 'Zastava'.
"There are numerous indications suggesting that L.R. is standing behind these murders," the spokesman of the Interior Ministry Ivo Kotevski said today.
