Krasimir Kamenov-Kuro and his family were killed in Cape Town, BNT reported, citing its sources.
The information about the discovered bodies of four Bulgarian citizens – two men and two women, apparently aged between 40 and 50 years, was confirmed by the police in the South African city.
“Around 8.20 this morning, the bodies of two women and two men with gunshot wounds were found in a house in the Constantia suburb of Cape Town. We believe that the victims are of Bulgarian origin,” said the spokesman of the local police department, Colonel Andre Trout.
According to him, an on-site inspection is being carried out by detectives from the “Serious Crimes” department, and so far no motive for the mass murder has been established. The investigation into the case continues.
Constantia is one of Cape Town’s oldest and wealthiest suburbs. It is located about 15 kilometers from the city center.
Kamenov, who is known to have lived in South Africa for at least 15 years, was charged in absentia by the Sofia City Prosecutor’s Office as a guarantor of the murder of Lyubomir Ivanov, a former employee of the Ministry of the Interior, who was conspicuously shot in Sofia at the beginning of 2022.
At the end of April, he was put on a red notice by Interpol. From a reference on the Interpol website, it is clear that Kamenov is wanted for murder, threat of murder and extortion.
At the same time, the prosecutor’s office indicted Kuro as part of a conspiracy, with the participation of other criminals, as well as defendants such as Tsvetan Vasilev, in a conspiracy to discredit senior magistrates and police officers.
According to unofficial information, Kuro’s connection with three more murders, of VIS boss Meto Ilienski, and of “Byzantium Brothers” – Radoslav and Nikolay Bikovi – is being investigated in our country.
The spokesperson of the Sofia City Prosecutor’s Office, Desislava Petrova, told Dir.bg that until now, the state prosecution has not received any official information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs about murdered Bulgarian citizens in the Republic of Bulgaria.
