Viktoria Marinova, a 30-year-old Bulgarian journalist who recently had become the anchor of a talk show focused on investigative reporting, was raped and killed Saturday in a case that has sent shock waves through Europe.

The motivation behind her killing remains unknown, and Bulgarian authorities say they have yet to establish a link between her death in the northeastern city of Ruse and her work as a journalist. But because Marinova is the third reporter to be killed in Europe in the past year, the news stoked anxieties about the safety of journalists on the continent.

“Again a courageous journalist falls in the fight for truth and against corruption,” Frans Timmermans, vice president of the European Commission, said Monday in Brussels. The European Union pledged its support for Bulgarian authorities as they continued their investigation.

Apart from the corruption & the state of the world in general, It just breaks my heart.

All signs point to a 'reckoning'.

She leaves a 7 year old daughter behind.

Horrific and Heart breaking.  Some  of  the " humans" in this cruel unfair world are not worthy of any decent words or thoughts. 

Acko, With you being a journalist, this would be even tougher for you to hear.
