Police suspect three of Siofok murder

Somogy county police have caught three suspects in the murder of a businessman outside his home in Siofok last Friday.

The 60-year-old was robbed and killed as he returned home before he could drive his car into his garage.

Police said the robbers had been watching their victim for two or three weeks before two of them attacked him as he attempted to drive his car into the garage.

The businessman had just returned from collecting the day’s revenues at his two tobacco shops and a drinks store.

Police did not say how the man was killed, nor how much cash his murderers took. Reports say he was strangled during a scuffle.

The three divided the money between themselves and burned their clothes and mobile phones.

Each of the suspects has a police record for burglaries and robberies.

The entrepreneur was found by his mother-in-law Saturday morning as she left the house. (MH p.14; Nsz p.16; inforadio.hu)
