Reporter turns suspect in deaths

June 23, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A Macedonian journalist has been charged in the slayings of two elderly women -- crimes he wrote about for his newspaper -- and police said they were investigating his possible involvement in a third death.

Vlado Taneski also was being questioned about a fourth woman who has gone missing, a police spokesman said.

Police began to suspect Taneski, 56, after reading his articles about the crimes in the national daily Utrinski Vesnik and noticing details that had not been released to the public. Since then, police have found Taneski's DNA on the bodies of two of the victims, the spokesman said.
