Slovak ex-WJC player killed ref

http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportblade...icle4988697.ab

Quote:
"23-yeard old Ladislav Scurko has played two junior world championships for Slovakia. And he has three seasons in WHL. The last two he has played in his homecountry for HC Kosice.

But now, the hockeycareer is over.

Arrested yesterday, suspect of murdering the referee Mark Liptaje. The murder happened in December 2007, and the body was found a year later. Scurko has admitted everything in interviews/interegations with the police."

supposedly, the referee did not have much of a reputation and he owed money to sme people, Scurko being one of them.....it has nothing to do with hockey.....

Here is a couple of other links i found on the story. Sad to see it come to this. Just another person to add to the growing list of " we never thought he could do that " people.

http://sports.theglobeandmail.com/se...rtsHockey/home

http://deadspin.com/5227433/heres-wh...is-a-poor-idea


Am i a mean person because i laughed at the comment on the end second link that says " 15-20 years for spearing? Jeez, they're really getting tough on penalties in Slovakia. " ?

Truly a sad story as it is the end of two lives in essence.

There has been some speculation in the Slovak media. The police does not want to say anything about the motive, but it isn´t hockey nor money. The latest speculation is that there was some kind of love relationship between Scurko and the ref.

There was a really interesting radio segment about how some players just lose their lives when they stop hockey. I encourage you listen to it, a link is below.

So according to Scurko´s version, he did have qualms and came to the place where he killed the ref and buried the body a week later than the actual murder happened. Also he supposedly even told his teammates that he had killed someone but noone believed him because he was known to be a joke-teller.

It looks like Scurko will soon be free on bail if he can raise 33 000 Euro. It seems strange to me given the brutal nature of the murder, and especially the fact that he as admitted to the crime. Anyhow if I was a referee or linesman in SVK, I would not sleep well in the coming weeks.

That joke is so not funny anymore, actually it never was.

But yeah, seriously welcome to banana republic-Slovakia. The country in which the head of justice is Mr. Harabin. Here he tells former mionister of justice Daniel Lipsic :"Pojdes do basy, ty hajzel" which is pretty much "You´ll go to jail, *******" and he did not even admit he said it till it was clear that it was in fact recorded. Let´s just not speak about his contacts with Baki Sadiki, the head of Albanian drug mafia.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC-OiWcmY4I

I´m not shocked that Scurko is out at all, Kamzik. You might, because I believe that you´ve been living quite away from Slovakia for a while now.

But yeah, on the other hand, am I worried that if I go down the street Scurko will attack me or soemthing? Not at all. Am I worried that I or someone close to me could be killed walking down the street by Daniel Tupy´s murders or some other people of that bread? Yes.

Yes that is probably true. My grandfather was quite involved with sports in the city of TO up until his death; players like Visnovsky have put the little city on the map.

This is tragic, but I hope none of you look down on me for laughing at "15 - 20 years for spearing"

The Kosice regional court overturned a decision today by a municipal court that would have allowed Scurko to make bail while he awaits trial. This decision means Scurko will remain in police custody unless he is eventually proven innocent of his charges, which seems unlikely given he has admitted to murder.

33,000 Euro only? So there might be something that holds water on Scurko side, interesting. The only fact that he has been charged is since he probably never told anybody about the body and hid it, he might have been defending himself.

Sort of like a hit and hide.
