Viktoria Marinova, a Bulgarian journalist, who was raped and murdered in the northern city of Ruse.

The body of 30-year-old Viktoria Marinova, who worked for broadcaster TVN, was found on Saturday near a pedestrian alley in an area with heavy vegetation, Bulgarian state media reported.

Bulgarian Interior Minister Mladen Marinov described the murder as “exceptionally brutal” and said Marinova was raped before she was killed, according to state media.

Bulgarian officials say a man named Severin Krasimirov has been detained at their request.

The country’s Interior Minister, Mladen Marinov, said the suspect was a DNA match for evidence recovered at the crime scene.

Bulgarian authorities said there was no evidence to suggest the attack was linked to Ms Marinova’s work.

Kim Wall was an established, freelance journalist who had traveled the world from her home in Sweden.

She had been chasing an interview with Danish inventor Peter Madsen for several months and had little hesitation in taking up his invitation for a trip on his homemade submarine off Copenhagen on a sunny evening last summer.

Her mutilated torso was discovered on a beach by a passing cyclist on 21 August. Her head, legs and clothing were found by police divers on 6 October.

Peter Madsen was convicted of premeditated murder and aggravated sexual assault.

Australian blogger and Instagram model, Sinead McNamara was found dead on a Mexican billionaire’s superyacht.

McNamara was working as a crew member on six-story $140 million superyacht Mayan Queen IV of a Mexican billionaire – Alberto Bailleres, 87. It’s also known that Bailleres and his family had left the ship a long time before the accident. There were only crew members left on a superyacht.

She was found  hanging from an upper deck – reportedly tangled in a spider’s web of ship’s buoys. Unconscious but still alive, McNamara received CPR from the ship’s doctor and treatment in a private clinic in Argostoli, before being airlifted by helicopter to Athens, 274km away.

Greek coroner Elias Bogiokas, who performed an autopsy on McNamara, also told reporters that she believed no crime had been committed because the 20-year-old took her own life.

McNamara was famous for her Instagram account with more than 23,000 followers (at the moment of writing the article), where she shared pictures from her travels and adventures.
