In the summer of 2020, a billionaire suspiciously died in a fire in Bár. By now, the truth has been revealed: gangsters were the ones who took advantage of his alcohol addiction to get their hands on the man’s assets, and then they murdered him.
According to Blikk.hu, the man, who had made his fortune in the non-ferrous metals trade, was set up by a group of people to take advantage of his alcohol addiction and steal all his wealth. The children of the businessman repeatedly asked the Budapest and Mohács police for help, but to no avail. If the police had given them attention, István M. might still be alive and might have been rescued from the gang. The billionaire man from Budapest burned to death in the Fehér Castle near Bár in Baranya County.
According to 444.hu, the owner of the Castle in Bár is billionaire István M., in his sixties, who lived in district 12 of Budapest. An alcoholic man in need of psychiatric treatment, he lived alone in his villa, but in the spring of 2020, bald, large men with BMWs and Audis started to visit his house. István M. essentially disappeared and was nowhere to be seen while people in the area said that someone was having big parties at his house.
The man was also known to have dealt with prostitutes. The gangster gang got information about István’s lifestyle from these women.
As Privátkopó.hu reported,
the man himself had the feeling that one of the women had put substances in his food that made him feel sick and took advantage of this by stealing from him several times. It is important to note that the sibling of this girl is a senior member of staff at the Counter-Terrorism Centre (Terrorelhárítási Központ, TEK).
The gang members, having become the billionaire’s housemates, did everything they could to isolate him from his family and the outside world, making sure he was completely under their influence. They also managed to take control of István M.’s company and steal everything from his business.
When one of the man’s daughters tried to get into her father’s house, she was refused entry to the villa where she was, in fact, registered. The daughter called the District 12 Police Station where
she was told that she was not allowed to enter on “superior orders” and was advised to file a complaint at the police station. She wanted to do so the next day but was not allowed to file the report.
The daughters of the businessman had to watch their father lose 35-40 kilograms in two years, his hair and teeth fell out, and his physical and mental state deteriorated. This led to suspicions that he had been drugged. Suddenly, in August 2020, family members were informed that István M. had died in a fire in his castle.
As we can read in Blikk.hu’s article, the daughters of the murdered billionaire had asked the police multiple times before the tragedy to help because their father was in danger. However, nothing ever happened. Despite the women’s plea, the Kaposvár Regional Investigating Prosecutor’s Office found no evidence of complicity in the case of the murdered István M. and quickly closed the investigation. The National Police Headquarters (Országos Rendőrfőkapitányság, ORFK) has not yet revealed whether an investigation has been launched at the police station.
In the early hours of 8 February 2022, the investigators of the Baranya County Police Headquarters detained a 49-year-old man and his 51-year-old partner who are under criminal supervision, suspected of the manslaughter in Bár,
According to well-founded suspicion, the two men followed the victim from the early spring of 2020 in order to obtain his property and then kill him. After killing their victim in the early hours of 10 August 2020,
they set fire to the man’s apartment to cover their tracks and conceal their crime.
The two men had already come to the attention of the police in connection with the crime, and during the monthslong, thorough investigation, the police obtained enough evidence to initiate the arrest of the two suspects at the prosecutor’s office.
