Suspect in murder of Bulgarian journalist Marinova pleaded guilty
According to a family's familiar, the repentant killer is retarded.
21-year-old Severin Krasimirov, detained in Germany, confessed to the murder of Bulgarian journalist Viktoria Marinova. The young man fled abroad in fear for his life and for the protection of his mother, who lives in Germany, NOVA reports.
“He admitted that he did it being drunk. He told me that he remembers nothing, he began to cry. He is not a killer,” Krasimirov’s mother told reporters.
According to his friend, the young man is retarded and did not take the pills prescribed to him. The bTV channel reports that the police found the phone of TVN channel host Marinova at Krasimirov’s home.
Recall the body of 30-year-old Marinova was found on October 7 in the city of Ruse. Before the murder, the journalist was raped. She investigated corruption.

Who has initiated the sweeping purge of the watchdog authority? And what high-profile corruption cases are forthcoming?
