The two men, accused of killing, dissecting, and burying the body of a 43-year-old Slovak man and his partner, have been caught two years after the bodies were discovered in Pilisszentiván, Hungary.
The police found the bodies after they discovered human bloodstains in a home in Budapest’s District 13. The man, originally from Slovakia, rented the home with fake documents and apparently escaped to Hungary in 2014 to avoid an eight-year prison sentence for violent crimes, reported Index.
The 43-year-old man’s 29-year-old girlfriend was also reported missing in 2016. The police thought she would be the other victim. After the biological evidence found at the Budapest home matched with samples from her family, the police confirmed the identity of the second body.
41-year-old Zsolt H., who was already under arrest for other charges, was interrogated as a suspect. He stated that he met a Slovak citizen, Norbert K., who spoke Hungarian, in 2015. They proceeded to commit three violent crimes in Slovakia. Zsolt H. also said that Norbert K. was the one who committed the double murder on February 11, 2016; he only helped dissect and bury the bodies.
Norbert K. was arrested on July 24, 2020, in Esztergom during a coordinated operation. The man has a criminal record for violent crimes in both Hungary and Slovakia. He has now been charged with premeditated, for-profit manslaughter of his partner, to the detriment of several people, while Zsolt H. has been charged with being his accomplice, as we reported before.
