The 37-year-old man brutally stabbed his wife in front of their 2.5-year-old child.
Very strange and tragic things have been happening in Hungary in the past months. This incident, a supposedly foreign citizen attacking a Hungarian, is not an exceptional case. Just a week ago, the police busted a Romanian man living in Hungary who was forcing his kid’s mother into prostitution. Thanks to the authorities, the suffering of these women came to an end.
Not in this case, unfortunately. The man stabbing his wife to death in Zugló did so out of jealousy, writes borsonline.hu.
Their own little child of only two and a half had to watch the whole thing.
Witnesses were still in shock the next day.
The tragedy fitting an action movie happened on Saturday early afternoon in the 14th district. A married couple sitting in a Toyota started fighting, first only with words, then quickly they got louder and louder, to the point where the husband pulled out a knife and stabbed the woman several times. According to borsonline.hu, the 33-year-old Eszter tried to get away but she collapsed on the sidewalk. Someone tried to help her by immediately calling an ambulance but it was too late to save her, she bled to death.
According to the news, the couple’s little kid of only two and a half was present at the scene and watched his father kill his mother. He then tried to run into the building of child protection services situated right next to a kindergarten, only a couple of metres away from where the car was parked.
After ending her life, the killer stayed by the woman’s side for a while, murmured something to the deceased, then tossed the knife and his jacket both covered in blood into a bin, later to be found by the police.
Some say that the foreign man was actually getting ready to commit the crime as their relationship with his wife had not been the same towards the end. According to them, the poor victim was trying to find happiness by the side of someone else.
The husband could not handle losing his wife, being cheated on, and the fact that his kid would be raised by another man.
The wife, however, wanted a divorce by any means as she could not take the husband’s aggression any longer. Allegedly, that was the reason for their meeting, to talk about the details of the divorce.
People living in the area say that they do not know them, probably because they lived somewhere else.
A witness said: “The couple was first sitting in the car. They started to argue but I did not understand what they talked about as they did not do so in Hungarian. The woman screamed loudly then jumped out of the car. The man practically chased her; poor woman was running all around the place but had to stop several times. Blood was squirting while she cried for help.”
“Ohh I will die, what will happen to my baby?”
The witness lives on the street and every day passes by the spot where Eszter was killed.
“This is something you cannot forget. I could barely sleep. I could only feel a bit of relief when the police took the body.”
