Den bulgarske gravejournalisten Victoria Marinova ble 6. oktober funnet voldtatt og drept i en park i grensebyen Ruse. Marinov arbeidet den siste tiden med korrupsjon knyttet til EU-midler.

He said her body could not be immediately identified, because there was no identification on the body, and her mobile phone was also missing. Some of her personal items were scattered near the walkway, and her body was found lying several meters away from one of her shoes, he said.
A local prosecutor, Georgi Georgiev, told reporters that her mobile phone, her car keys, her eyeglasses, and some of her clothing were missing.
Marinova jobbet for den private TV-stasjonen TVN. Hun har i flere år jobbet med livsstilsjournalistikk, men begynte for noen måneder siden å jobbe for gravejournalistikkprogrammet Detector.
