I just cannot imagine to what lengths people go to become famous?

A journalist named Vlado Taneski in Macedonia just did that. He had people on a cliff hanger on his reports and in-depth investigative reports about the cases of four women, three murdered and one missing in the town of Kicevo, Macedonia. The details were mouth watering and all his readers in a local daily could not wait for the more of the sordid details of the murder.

The victims were all elderly women who lived and worked as cleaners in Kicevo, about 80 miles outside of the Macedonian capital, Skopje.

Their bodies were found naked, stuffed inside plastic bags and left in several locations. Evidence showed that they had been sexually and physically abused before they were strangled with phone cords. All of them lived in the same neighborhood as Taneski. The cases had all gone unsolved since the first woman's disappearance in 2003. The three known victims died in 2005, 2007 and 2008.

Here comes the best part:

The police came to the conclusion that it was impossible for anyone to write such details about the murders. So after a detail investigation, they nailed the culprit. It was the famous journalist Vlado himself! His DNA was found on some of the victims' remains.

The 56-year-old reporter was arrested last Friday and charged with two of the brutal murders. Authorities were hoping to talk to him about the third body and the other missing woman.

But Taneski would never help investigators, nor will he ever stand trial.

He was discovered dead in his cell late on Sunday.

"He committed suicide," police spokesman Ivo Kotevski told ABC News.

"He put his head in a pail full of water. It is unclear how none of his cell mates or guards noticed while he was doing so. He finished like in a horror movie," Kotevski said.

Although I would say he was helped to put his head in the pail, but who am I to doubt the police spokesman…..i thought only my country is bolehland. Looks like there are indeed other bolehland also. Anyway this guy deserved it.. from zero to hero to zero again!
