A Polish national brutally stabbed a young Hungarian girl to death last November in Bradford, North England. He first attacked Borbála Benkő (24) and then turned against her roommate. Borbála had no chance to survive, while Klaudia Rogozinka suffered life-threatening injuries. Zbigniew Soj, the perpetrator, said demons possessed him: that is why he committed the horrific deed.
According to RTL Híradó, the court gave Mr Soj a life sentence for murdering the young Hungarian girl. Furthermore, he received 14 years for attempting to kill her roommate. That means he will remain in jail for at least 45 years, szmo.hu summed up.
His victim, Borbála, taught children in Bradford, where she was sent by a Christian organisation. The attack happened after the man had watched a horror movie and drank alcohol.
The victims lived in separate flats in Sherborne Road, Great Horton, Bradford. Zbigniew Soj attacked the girls with two knives while they were asleep. First, he attacked Borbála and then turned to the other Hungarian girl, Klaudia. He injured her and tried to commit suicide afterwards. Police caught him on the spot, and he immediately confessed everything.
He said that he wanted to experience what it is like to kill somebody.
He added that demons possessed him.
At the court hearing on Friday, one of the police investigators said that the girls knew the man and trusted him. They could never imagine that he could commit such a horrific deed against them. The officer said it was a cruel and unexpected attack on the two defenceless girls.
Based on the statement of the West Yorkshire police conducting the investigation, the mother of the murdered girl said that Borbála would have had a bright future ahead of her. “She devoted her life to teaching children” Her dream was to start a school for special needs students in Hungary. “She will not be able to carry it out, but we will create a foundation,” she added.
“It will be named after her.”
The Hungarian girl is mourned by many in Hungary and Bradford. People commemorated her with flowers, photos, candles and masses.
Zbigniew Soj was featured in British magazines years before the Bradford horror because he walked 100 kilometres to draw attention to his unbearable tinnitus. The Polish man, who has several college degrees, can be released from prison 45 years later at the earliest.
The Telegraph & Argus wrote that Soj
“accepted there had been sexual contact during the killing.”
The British magazine added that Soj stabbed Borbála more than 40 times. Some of the blows were so harsh that she suffered bone damage. Afterwards, he entered the other girl’s unlocked flat and tried to strangle her. He also stabbed her nine times causing severe chest, shoulder and arm injuries.
He only stopped when the girl yelled at him in Polish that her family and friends needed her. Then he left the scene and Klaudia could finally call 999. However, the murderer returned shortly thereafter to tell her that he was suffering from depression and
was jealous of other people who were able to lead a normal life which he was not capable of anymore.
Ms Rogozinka has physically recovered from the horrors that happened to her but still suffers from a sleeping disorder and mental issues.
