Macedonian journalist 'reported own murders'
A journalist in Macedonia has been arrested due to suspicion he is behind three murders he reported on.
I suppose that's one way to guarantee getting a good story - sick though!
The journalist, Vlado Taneski, is accused of raping, torturing and killing three elderly women in the south-western town of Kicevo.
Macedonian police began to suspect him after he included details in his reports that they had not made public.
Other men have reportedly already been convicted of the first two murders. The third was committed last month.
Mr Taneski, 56, has not yet been charged with any offence, police said.
They allege that he kidnapped and abused the women before cutting them into pieces and dumping them in plastic bags.
"He is also suspected of being involved in... [the disappearance of] a 78-old female who is still missing," said police spokesman Ivo Kotevski.
"All victims were found naked, strangled, wrapped with phone cables," the spokesman said.
"The women were sexually and physically abused. For example, the last victim, a 65-year old female, was found with 13 deep wounds on her skull and multiple rib fractures."
