Quote:
Four women were killed between 2000 and 2004, and their bodies were hidden in the forests of Vaslui County. Killed by strangulation - with an object, or strangulation - by hand, after being taken by a car "on occasion". The policemen and the four case prosecutors on whom the files were walked have different opinions: some believe that there is only one author, considering the similar mode of operation, others go on the idea that there would be several.

Maria Bîru - 46 years old, Safta Ciubotaru - 30 years old, Marcela Tomozei - 29 years old, Mioara Manea 29 years old are the names on the list of serial killer or criminals who terrified the Huşi area, Vaslui Tecuci between 2000 and 2004. Behind these names are hidden stories, families, dramas and destinies that were suspended on the day of the death of these women.

Marcela Tomozei was a priestess in the village of Creţeşti and worked as a nurse at the Hospital from Huşi, where she commuted. On October 12, 2000, the woman got into a used car on the outskirts of Tecuci. The next day, her body was found near the brick factory in Bârlad. Marcela had been strangled with her own scarf. The woman's jewelry and scarf were missing.

In December 2000, while the police were working on this case, a forester was to discover a skull and some human bones in the area of ​​Mitoc forest. Police found another skeleton 800 meters away - two other women had been killed and hidden in the woods. It was established that the first remains found belong to Safta Ciubotaru, a 30-year-old woman, who disappeared two days before the priestess, on October 10. The woman lived in Bârlad and, according to the family, she had gone to Vaslui that day to raise some money. He had hitchhiked in front of the Bearing Factory in Bârlad.

The one who killed Safta took her purse, in which the woman had the documents and a small amount of money, the gold wedding ring and the silver necklace around her neck.

The second skeleton found in the Mitoc forest belonged to Maria Bîru, a 46-year-old, corpulent, short woman, who stands out from the pattern of the other victims found in the forests of Vaslui. Maria lived in Răchitoasa, Bacău County. On August 28, 2000, he left for Vaslui to visit his sister. Her road passed through Bârlad, and the last time she was seen hitchhiking, in front of the Rulmentul Factory in the city. As in Safta's case, the killer appropriated her purse and women's jewelry. Forensic doctors could not determine how the two women were killed.

By 2004, Vaslui police officers had almost forgotten about the "occasional" crimes. All the clues were clogged and they suspected that the murderer or criminals had either been arrested for something else, had left the country, had no driver's license, or had died. On May 21, 2004, Mioara's husband Anuta Manea complained about her disappearance. The 29-year-old woman had left home, near Vaslui, for her parents in Şişcani. He took the "opportunity" from Peco on the outskirts of Vaslui, where hitchhiking was usually done. "He had read in the newspaper years ago about the case of the priestess from Creţeşti, who was found dead in the forest after hitchhiking, but she didn't think that anything bad could happen to her," Mioara's husband remembers. A week later, her body was found by a cowboy in the Tatarani forest, in a place where men with prostitutes come. The heavy rains of those days made it impossible to find conclusive evidence on the spot. The woman's face was disfigured by a blow, and the jewelry was on her. Only the bag was missing.

During the years of investigation, the case of the four crimes in Vaslui passed through the hands of four prosecutors. First, prosecutor Radu Galan went to the scene to investigate the first three crimes. The second case prosecutor was Todică Cernat, and soon the case passed to prosecutor Vasile Şelaru. In 2007, the case was taken over by prosecutor Ovidiu Berinde, where he is still today. Todică Cernat retired in 2009, and Şelaru arrived at the Botoşani Prosecutor's Office.

Police Commissioner Constatin Bărbieru, who dealt with the crimes in Vaslui until 2007, when he retired, believed from the beginning that all four crimes were committed by a single killer: "According to Vaslui police statistics, it would have been it would be healthier to have only one author and not four, on the grounds that there would be fewer cases with unknown authors (AN). There were our bosses who said, And you didn't! And you didn't find it! Did you do AN-eu again? ». For some, statistics are important. Not for me: I always thought that instead of those women she could be my wife, she could be my daughter ”.

The current case prosecutor, Ovidiu Berinde, confessed in 2008 to Jurnal Naţional that he is not familiar with all the details of the case. He now believes there are more criminals at large. "The differences between Manea, killed in 2004, and Tomozei in 2000 make me believe that it is not the same author. I think there are separate, unrelated cases. I would also link the other two women killed in 2000 to Tomozei's situation and I would assume that she is the same author who, probably, at that time, in the summer-autumn of 2000, practiced a kind of taxi, "believes prosecutor Berinde. "This file is a regret, a rejection of my career. I don't have any more files that I can't finish. I feel like a handicap, but we don't have any relevant information anymore. I monitored suspects, I had suspicions, some clues that have not been confirmed. He's a suspect in prison for a similar case, but he doesn't admit anything. At the moment we can't do much. That's because he didn't get up on the spot on time. We are analyzing, these measures are mentioned in the attached files ". The last measure ordered by the prosecutor ?! "It was the one based on the ordinance of the General Prosecutor of Romania, I don't know his name anymore, through which the old files of this type should be given to the police. The case is now being handled by a team of police officers led by Commissioner Liviu Munteanu ", states Berinde. All the files of the women killed after they were hitchhiked are with the Vaslui Police. "When something new appears, the policeman comes to me. The investigating officers have the initiative, and when they can't go on the criminal investigation side, they ask me.

Commissioner Munteanu says that things are still moving in the case, "under the direct delegation of the prosecutor". That a suspect, one from the country, was recently checked. "We have all kinds of activities: we check those with a similar mode of operation, those that would fit the profile. We collaborate daily with the prosecutor ", the commissioner claims. As for the absence of results, the policeman admits that, after so many years, only flair and luck could shed light on the case of the hitchhikers killed. In four years, three of these crimes will be prescribed.

Four women's bodies were found in the period 2000-2004 scattered through the forests of Vaslui County. They were killed by strangulation (with an object) or strangulation (by hand) after being taken by a car "on occasion". At best, investigators talk about a serial killer, with the worst possibility being that for each victim there is a killer who has not yet been caught. In the places where they were "picked up" by the ghost car, dozens of women are "on occasion" right now. Like a death lottery.

That autumn day, Marcela Tomozei had a lot on her mind. She persuaded her husband to go to Tecuci together, to see if their car had been repaired. Not for another, but in a week they would get married and they couldn't do without a car. They took the "opportunity" to Tecuci - a truck that took them to the city. In the evening, they spent time with a friend who was hosting them, and at one point Marcela announced to her husband: “Tomorrow I will go to the health unions' strike in Vaslui. It is no longer possible, he is hungry! ”. The next day she woke up, ironed her pink shirt and her husband took her to Bârlad. He did not wait to see in which car his wife was getting into, as she was used to hitchhiking from Creţeşti to Huşi, where the woman worked. The priest knew that he had a wife who was more introverted than he was, resourceful and resilient in any situation.

Two days before, another woman from Vinderei, Vaslui, was also preparing to leave. Safta Ciubotaru, 30 years old, had been staying with her sister in Bârlad for some time. He had discovered about a year ago that the only chance to get rid of his family from poverty was to work for the Turks, so on October 10, 2000 he wanted to go to a travel agency in Vaslui, to see when he could return to work. hotare. He had made a clear plan in his head: he would take the opportunity from the bearing factory in the city to Vaslui, there he would take out the $ 1,500 that was hardly collected among foreigners and he would do his best to leave for Turkey as soon as possible. He kissed his two children, Bogdan and Maria, aged 11 and 8, respectively, and left in a hurry, with his bag under his arm.

Maria Bîru had had many difficulties in life. Patient, it will be said on the day she decided to hit the road from Răchitoasa, Bacău, to Vaslui, to a sister of hers, that in order to make a small economy it is worth all the effort. She knew her sister could help her get some necessary medications a little cheaper. He woke up when the sun was just rising, put on his green road suit, and left in a hurry. At Berheci he got off the bus and ran to take the train to Bârlad. The train did not arrive at that time on that day, so the 46-year-old woman decided to take the opportunity to Vaslui. After all, how much could it cost?

At least once a month, when she missed her parents in Şişcani. He would go to the PECO on the outskirts of Vaslui, he would shake hands and it wouldn't take half an hour for someone to pick him up. It is true that he had read some time ago by a priestess from Creţeşti who hitchhiked and came across the wrong person, if they found her strangled in the forest from Tătărani. But he still didn't think anything bad could happen to her. On May 20, 2004, he left work and left at around 6 pm for the occasion. He wanted to be there for his mother's name day, St. Helena. Her husband accompanied her to the city center, where she went down to work, and Mioara went to the place where she usually took opportunities to Şişcani. As of this moment, no one knows what happened to the 29-year-old brunette woman, dressed in a black imitation leather coat,

No one knows where his footsteps are and what he is given to find. This must have been thought of by a carter, a woodcutter, and a cowboy when they discovered, each on his way, the deformed piles of clothes in the heart of the forest. Two days after the priestess from Creţeşti was reported missing by her husband, a carter from Zorleni who was heading to his village saw a body lying in the grass near the brick factory of Bârlad. He called the police immediately. Indeed, the body found on the back, with a bent knee and open arms, belonged to the priestess who had taken the opportunity to go on strike in the Health unions.

A few months after the discovery near the brickwork, in December 2000, a woodcutter came across a human skull one day. It is located in the heart of Mitoc forest, in Costeşti commune, about halfway between Bârlad and Vaslui. When they searched the area, the police found another skull, bone remains and clothes 800 meters beyond the first discoveries. The bodies were decomposed to the bone, and the skeletons had been dismantled by animals. Following the identification of clothing by relatives and anthropological expertise, it was concluded that the bones belong to Maria Bîru, who has been missing for almost half a year, and Saftei Ciubotaru, who left home in October. All three women had hitchhiked somewhere between Bârlad and Vaslui.

Four years later, when investigators' hopes of catching the killer dwindled, a cowboy in poor spirits announced the head of the post in the village of Tatarani, a town near Huşi, that he had found a dead woman on the edge. The postmaster announced his bosses at the center, who ordered him not to approach and ruin the tracks. So the first police officer to arrive at the scene monitored the area until the arrival of the army of prosecutors, police and forensic doctors - with binoculars. The woman with her arms outstretched on the cross had her face crushed and her pants down. She died strangled with one hand. The earrings and the two rings were found on it.

So what did the investigators have? A strangled, a strangled and two skeletons whose cause of death could not be established with certainty. All left on the occasion. All found on side roads of a busy route. Tomozei and Manea - found in places known to be preferred by men who go there with prostitutes. Witnesses are almost completely absent, and those who were, too little could be relied upon for their statements. There is a robot portrait of the suspect in the case of Tomoza based on descriptions of some people who claim to have seen the priestess from Creţeşti in a red Dacia. But, as prosecutor Berinde admits, dealing with cases: “The portrait has no distinctive signs, it is black and white. It can be anyone. "

Commissioner Bărbieru, who worked on the four crimes, he says the witnesses were "in different states" at the time and gave contradictory statements, failing to identify the priestess in the photographs shown to them. "If we had the description of the murderer's car, we would have been with him for a long time," he says.

There is also a psychological profile of the alleged criminal. If investigators' theories about the motive for the crimes are sexual in nature, it is assumed that the killer is mentally ill, not in a very advanced state. "In these cases, the former convicts, the people predisposed to such acts, and the drivers who drove taxis without authorization on the respective route, and the alcoholics, and the whole nation were worked on," admits the case policeman with disgust. Commissioner Constantin Bărbieru, now retired.

Opinions are divided between those working on this case: on the one hand, some believe that it is a serial killer, others - that there are several. Chief Prosecutor Vasile Şelaru, who initially dealt with these cases, says he cannot lean towards any of the theories, as there are arguments for a serial killer as well as for several. "In the cases of Manea and Tomoza, for example, there are many similarities," he said.

What made the investigation considerably more difficult was the fact that at the time of the discovery of three of the victims in Romania, DNA tests were not used. In the last case, in 2004, Mioara Manea, the body had already entered a state of putrefaction, and the test results were not relevant. Asked who he thinks was the cause of the unresolved cases, prosecutor Berinde said that the lack of "material traces" - no subungual deposit was found, a sign that the victims were taken by surprise, no footprints were found, no car tracks they helped the investigators too much, they couldn't do DNA tests. No fractured bones were observed on the skeletons, signs of hitting with blunt objects.

In an attempt to catch the perpetrator at last, prosecutors practically brushed the area where the last body was found. "On a branch, at a height like the tip of a man's head, if it were to stand there, and properly as the corpse was dragged, I found some hairs and I thought they would get us out of the impasse. The biocriminalistic analysis resulted in squirrel hair ", prosecutor Berinde remembers.

The four women were left with children and families. For some, life has no meaning after the absurd death of a loved one, others have moved on, and others are forced to bury everything in memory. The husband of the priestess Thomas, with whom she had two sons, whom he dreamed of making priests, remarried a few months after the murder of his wife; Safta Ciubotaru's children ended up in foster care, because her husband died, and her relatives, numerous and poor, did not take on such responsibility; Maria Bîru's son has not performed a Christian funeral and burial for his mother until today, refusing to ask for a death certificate for a skull that does not lack a table, as he remembered that Maria was missing. Mioara Manea's husband extinguished his pain in his drink for a while, not believing that the woman with whom he had just finished building a house, their house, and with whom he had planned that by the end of the year she died having a child would end up like a dog on the edge of a forest. Mioara's father also died shortly after his daughter, "disgusting", as people say in Moara Grecilor, a locality belonging to Vaslui.

After so many years, a few photos from old books or newspaper articles are the only traces of the four women's lives. Even today, other single women line up on their way out of the cities to hitchhike. Because I don't know or don't want to know that a murderer, or several, could go hunting again. "I tell you, in these years, after 2004, when I drove to Focsani, I looked at every opportunity. Can't I find a woman out of this thrown somewhere? There were also our bosses that: "Oh, you didn't do it again, you didn't find it again", and you made a ring "(no - Author Unknown). For some, statistics are important. Not for me: I always thought that instead of those women she could be my wife, she could be my daughter ", says the retired commissioner sincerely.

Commissioner Constantin Bărbieru from IPJ Vaslui talks about the obstacles that stand in the way of an investigator in the case of a crime of this kind.
"Perfect crime… I don't think it exists, it just exists… it's not our chances to fight like this sometimes… There is no perfect crime, but there are powerless policemen. That's about it, you don't have what you need, you can't go where you want… It was this difference between 2000 and 2004, we thought maybe the killer was out, or he was in jail, or he didn't have a license, he didn't have a car. It could be someone who doesn't have a license. There are many possibilities. There were days when my people came to work at 6:00 and left at 12:00 at night. If in the first two or three months you do not find an author for such a serious act, the chances of catching him decrease to 30% -40%.
There were also rare cases in which I found a murderer after eight years, after ten years.

There were also parents who could not die until they confessed that the boy had committed a murder years ago. There was a case in '86 that I only solved in 1994. I found an old man in front of a gate, stabbed. Knife blow, and you're done. Who? What the? How? He didn't argue with anyone, he had no problems, an old man from the country, on the road, simply. At that time there was no disco, no panorama, no conflicts. When we found the author, he told us that it all took less than 30 seconds. The author went out of the house to the toilet that morning. He saw an old man defecating on his fence. And he became angry, took the knife from the house, went to prick it, jumped the fence back into the yard, and lay down again. His father, in the next room, heard nothing.

From the discussions, he confessed to his father that the old man felt that his son had changed. And the old man, when he was about to die, could not give up until he called us and told us everything.

In other cases, if you don't have tangible evidence, but you know that's the killer, you're sure he's the perpetrator, then wait in line until the devils take him. Either he cracks or I crack. But I have someone to go after. Checks only on him, obedience, until he has to make a mistake once, I drive him crazy, I follow him, I file a case for other things, if he commits other crimes. But here if you have nothing… Here the murderer of the four women may have died ”

Prosecutor Ovidiu Berinde, Vaslui Prosecutor's Office, does not believe that there is a perfect crime, only circumstances that delay the desired result.
"There is no perfect crime, but there are crimes in which, due to objective circumstances, that you find the body late, you can't take evidence, you can end up not being able to turn your head. Or you end it late. As was the case last year with a murderer found after 20 years. The authors started arguing with each other and it was found out. The victim was an old man with good financial condition. He had a sin: he liked to pay women, but of these young women, aged 15, 16, 17, for sexual services. One of these girls was in contact with two other people and they decided to come in and take the money. They first went there and borrowed a small sum to see where the money was, and then they found that he was going to an annex to bring the money, and all three went after that. The girl entered the house, he left the door open, and then the other two came, took an axe, which they had seen before in the hall of the house, and struck it on the head. Then I don't think they found any more money. They took some goods, they couldn't find the money. At the beginning of the investigation, this girl was also included in the circle of suspects, but no one saw her entering, leaving… "

Priestess Marcela Tomozei was the first body found in the series of the four women who hitchhiked and ended up strangled in the forest

Shortly before October 12, 2000, the priestess from Creţeşti, Vaslui, had a nightmare that kept repeating itself every night. He dreamed of human heads. With God in mind, he fasted for a few days. He would be the last. She was found strangled with her own scarf.

On the morning of October 11, 2000, Marcela Tomozei, 29, was working in her office at the Huşi Municipal Hospital. The wife of the priest from the commune of Creţeşti in Vaslui had been employed here for a year and a half as a nurse. After connecting the last patient to the device, taking off his robe, he reminded his colleagues that they will see each other tomorrow at the strike of the health unions, which was taking place in Vaslui. She left with her husband, who had been waiting for her to finish her shift. They had wondered this morning that, after leaving work, they would go to Tecuci, where they had left an ARO car for repair.

They hitchhiked and, in less than 5 minutes, found a shot that left them exactly in the city of Galaţi. In the evening, they had to celebrate the birthday of the friend from Tecuci where they were staying, the priest and him. The father from Creţeşti found out the next day, early in the morning, that his wife wanted to go to Vaslui. He said, "I'm going on strike, it's impossible, he's hungry!" The priest led her to the place where dozens of people were waiting for the opportunity to Bârlad. He did not wait to see in which car his wife got in and returned to the house of his friend the priest, going to go alone to check his ARO car.

On October 13, Sergiu M., a peasant from the commune of Zorleni, which borders Bârlad, was driving home through the city's brick factory. He saw on the right side, among the branches of some trees, at a distance of 30 meters from the road, a woman. Lying on her back, with one knee raised and her arms open next to her body. He realized that the woman was lying breathless and called the police. This is how Marcela Tomozei's body was found. Her road from Tecuci to Vaslui stopped in the middle of the distance. Eduard Tomozei promised his wife that he would return to Tecuci the same day. After the strike, he made his way to the hospital in Huşi, and then took a chance to Tecuci.

Seeing his wife no longer appear, the priest got on the phone and called his mother-in-law at home. He hadn't been there. He then called work. "On the day of the strike, a colleague told me that Marcela had not arrived. Then her husband called the hospital to find out if he had arrived at work. I told him no. Then I heard him say, "It means he's gone." I don't know why he was so sure that he disappeared and that he might not have been anywhere else ", says now the head nurse from the Huşi Municipal Hospital, Simona Manea. "After I heard at the hospital that she didn't get to work, I understood that she had disappeared, because there had never been a day when she didn't go to work, she didn't make a discount from something like that," Tomozei explains. After the phone call to the hospital, the father stopped looking for her at the acquaintance and started calling at the hospitals in Bârlad and Vaslui. He thought the woman had taken a car that had crashed on the road. Towards evening, the police announced that his wife had disappeared. The next day, the head of the post in the commune where he had a parish told him that a dead woman had been found near Bârlad, but that he appeared to be 20 years old, not 30 years old.

"Hearing that she is so young, I didn't even want to go and recognize her. But he told me something more special about the woman's boots found there, and that's when I realized she was. My wife had some recently bought boots with special laces on the back. I went to Bârlad, I was shown pictures, I recognized her and that was it ", recalls the priest, who says that he tries to fight with those memories by burying them as deep as possible in his memory.

It is not known exactly what happened to Marcela Tomozei on October 12, 2000. In Tecuci she was seen by a witness getting into a Dacia blue slipper, but it is very likely that in Bârlad she changed her car with another in which he would meet the murderer. In the file there are also the statements of some witnesses who allegedly passed by a cart at Cărămidărie at the same time as the murderer. They claim to have seen a red Dacia carrying a woman in the back seat. At that moment, they did not know if the woman in the back was alive or dead. The car would have stopped when the cart approached, and after passing it would have accelerated, would have turned right, entering the edge of the acacia where the body was found. Commissioner Constantin Bărbieru, the police officer who investigated the case, now retired, however, questions the statements of the witnesses: "The problem is that those witnesses were a bit drunk at the time. It was a cart with people from Dealu Mare, in different conditions. You couldn't base what I said, but you couldn't eliminate either. We relied more on the statements of only one of the five who were in the cart, a woman who was from Bucharest ". The wheels left marks on the spot, from which you could determine exactly where the car entered. The route was the same as indicated by witnesses. However, the case prosecutor, Ovidiu Berinde, claims that the tire marks are not from Dacia, but from another type of car. However, the commissioner contradicts him that the tires in question could be used in Dacia, as well as in three other types of cars, including Cielo, Tico, ARO. You couldn't base what I said, but you couldn't eliminate either. We relied more on the statements of only one of the five who were in the cart, a woman who was from Bucharest ".

After inserting the car between the acacias, the killer probably took the body back, carried it a few meters to the edge, then threw it off his shoulder. This is what Commissioner Constantin Bărbieru deduced, taking into account the position in which the victim was found. However, the killer's footsteps should have been found at the scene the next day. The first prosecutor who dealt with the case, Vasile Şelaru, puts the lack of footprints on the possibility that the woman's body was thrown directly from the car, contradicting the policeman. Prosecutor Berinde, who took over the case from Şelaru, supports the idea that the victim was carried in his arms. "However, no footprints were found because the place was covered with grass and it had been a long time (the body was found the day after the disappearance - no.) So that the trampled grass could rise." says Barbarian. The file in the file shows that from the place where the last trace of the car was found to the bushes where the priestess' body was thrown, there are about 10 meters.

The crime was not committed at the place where the victim was found, because no traces of fighting were found there. "We have developed several hypotheses. One of the versions was that it is possible that the woman was in the front-right seat, and another aggressor, who was in the car next to the driver, could have strangled her ", prosecutor Berinde claims. At the autopsy, it was established that Marcela's death was caused by strangulation with a textile material, most likely with the scarf that the woman wore around her neck and that left marks on the skin of her neck. The scarf was not found. "No signs of fighting were found. So a woman defending herself, the more you scratch, the more you find each other. She was probably taken by surprise, "says Berinde. In addition to the strangulation marks on the neck, traces of a blow to the right side of the head were also found.

In 2000, it was still not possible to perform DNA tests that would have facilitated the work of investigators, and at that time no evidence was collected for possible further research. Although more than seven years have passed since the murder, investigators appear to be as far from dead as in the early days. "The suspicion would have been that the individual or individuals lived in the Bârlad area. Every time a serious crime came to the local prosecutor's offices, which raised the issue of an identical rape as a mode of operation, a woman was taken to the occasion, diverted from the road… we were immediately notified and we were doing separate investigations on our line , says prosecutor Berinde, who recalls that before 2000, there had been two similar cases of murder, but the perpetrators had been caught. Those two criminals were also checked, but one was in prison at the time of the crime and the other was abroad. Investigators checked all those who, in autumn and spring, the culmination of the commute with "take me, uncle", practiced unauthorized taxi between Bârlad and Vaslui. To no avail. "We have worked on former convicts, and those who are prone to such acts, and alcoholics, and the whole nation," says Commissioner Bărbieru, disappointed.

From the statements of the witnesses in the cart that allegedly passed the red car that entered the edge on the day of the crime, a robot portrait was made, but which it did not use at all in the investigation. "It's a black and white portrait, it doesn't have much distinctive signs. It can be anyone ", sighs Berinde, the prosecutor who, apart from the case of the priestess, also investigated the exorcism from Tanacu in parallel. Several specialists were then called in to make a psychological profile of the killer. Almost everyone thought it was a man with mental illness, but not in a very advanced form. Despite the investigation, there was never a main suspect and only one man was brought before the lie detector in this whole investigation. The victim's husband. The priest was supposed to know something about the identity of the killer, but he only wanted him and God to know who killed his wife. "We also suspected him of some less clean business and we thought that if a person, whom he had deceived in a certain transaction, could have committed the crime out of revenge. There was some information that could not be established if they are real or not ", says Berinde. The priest admits that he was selling icons at the time, but they were icons he painted. "It simply came to my notice then that he got married very quickly. I have the impression that not even 40 days have passed ", remembers the colleague from the hospital of the priestess, Simona Manea. The priest defends himself by saying that he actually remarried after three months, and the haste was due to a professional reason. "We priests are not allowed to be unmarried. My bosses also came to me and told me to get married.

In the case of the priestess, the motive for the crime is not a certainty either. At first glance, it seems that the killer's goal was robbery. According to the priest, Marcela wore several gold jewelry on the day of her death: a bracelet with a chain, a chain with a cross, a wedding ring and a ring with a frame. They were no longer found on the body. He had 100,000 lei in his bag, documents and an akathist. However, there are several hypotheses regarding the motive of the crime. "She may have been sexually killed. What he took from her, either he took them to give another touch to the deed, or he is mentally ill and takes some memories ", explains Bărbieru, who believes less in the robbery variant. The robbery hypothesis seems even less plausible in the eyes of the father: “The jewelry was not flashy. It was initially said that Marcela was full of gold, when in fact we were very bad chalices.
The commissioner believes she was killed rather by a sex maniac. However, no signs of rape were found, and the victim's clothes were in order. "In 2000, I did not have the opportunity to do DNA tests and it was established that on the day she left, at 12 in the morning, she had had sexual intercourse with her husband. It was not possible to specify whether she was raped or not ", admits Bărbieru. A woman who had not been killed for 30 years. A destroyed family. Two orphans. A murderer at large. A case in which "nothing could be established".

"A rebellious woman who was not afraid of anything"

Marcela talked a lot to her family colleagues. She was very proud of her two boys. He wanted to make them both priests, like their father. "She was a very faithful woman," she remembers her ex-husband. "When he died, the eldest boy was 8 years old and the youngest was 6. I told them that their mother died because she was ill. I caught them one day arguing: the little one said they weren't orphans, and the big one contradicted him: "Well, you're still stupid, we're motherless orphans," Eduard Tomozei recalls. Everyone who knew Marcela says about her that she was a strong woman. "It simply came to our notice then. He was not afraid of anything. I asked her why she was not afraid to go hitchhiking alone, because she came from her home, from Creţeşti, to Huşi, to the hospital, hitchhiking from time to time. He also came with his personal car. She was driving alone through the woods at night and I asked her if she was afraid she would have a breakdown, something. He said that he was not afraid at all ", says the head nurse from the Huşi Municipal Hospital, Simona Manea. And the priest knew she was going alone on the occasion, but she didn't worry about it. "A week before, he had also gone to Tecuci on the occasion. I knew he had a flair, that he didn't get in anyone's car. It was clever fire."

Three months after the body of the priestess from Creţeşti was found in the forest, strangled, after she had gotten into a used car, the skeletons of two other women were discovered who, apparently, had the same fate. Investigators in Vaslui were already drawing the profile of a serial killer.

In the heart of the Mitoc forest from Costeşti commune, ten kilometers away from the nearest locality, a man who was cutting wood discovered a man's skull a few meters from the forest road. Police immediately called, and law enforcement officers brushed the area, revealing a second skull and several bone debris spread over a length of one kilometer. "The head was on one side, the limbs on the other. Not many skeletal segments were found. But where they were found was forest and there were enough animals, wild boars, foxes. The women were actually broken down to the bone (no - although they had died 2-3 months before). They could get there because of the weather conditions, but also because there were animals there. I saw a man eaten by a dog and all that was left were his bones on his face. The skeletons were clearly dismantled by the animals ", specifies the policeman who handled the case, Constantin Bărbieru. Apart from the fact that no signs of blows were identified on the skull and other bone segments, not much is known about the causes of death. After months of research, investigators were able to identify the skeletons. They belonged to women who were allegedly hitchhiking on the day of their disappearance.

Maria Bîru, the first victim, was a terrible woman. At the age of 46, she could be proud that she had two children, that she built a house in Răchitoasa, Bacău, and that she keeps the whole household behind. On August 28, 2000, she decided to go to her sister in Vaslui: she wanted to take some cheaper medicines and her sister could help her. At six-thirty he reached his destination, which was confirmed by the bus driver, and then hurried to take the train to Bârlad. That day the train stopped running, the relatives found out later. From this moment on, what happened to the woman remains a secret.

It is certain that Maria Bîru has little in common with the other three victims of the alleged serial killer, the priestess from Creţeşti, Safta Ciubotaru and Mioara Manea. "This woman was totally different from the others: much older, much more corpulent, small in stature. Likewise, gone on occasion. He may have come from Berheci. Either he came in pieces from Berheci to Bârlad and from Bârlad he took something else to Vaslui, or he went directly ", assumes the policeman Bărbieru. Chronologically, Maria Bîru is the first of the four women hitchhiked and killed. Apart from the clothes, none of the woman's personal belongings were found. There is no witness or suspect.

One of Maria Bîru's sons lives in a poor house in Răchitoasa, Bacău. Almost 8 years after her death, no one took care to bury her or bury her in a Christian way, the son motivating that he is not convinced that the bones found belong to his mother. Poverty is another good argument. The only trace of this woman's existence is a picture enlarged to the rank of a painting, which sits in one of the short rooms of the old house where Maria's son lives with his wife and the three grandchildren she has never met. This is what Liviu Bîru remembers from then. "On the third day after my mother left for my sister in the city, my aunt from Vaslui called that my mother had not arrived. We were not alarmed that he did not appear the next day, because he had told us: "If I fail to return tomorrow, the day after tomorrow I will certainly appear." After about 4 months, someone told us that my mother had been found in a forest and that we should come to the identification. She had her purse with about 7 million inside, a chain and a ring. These have not appeared before. "

A memory from when he was 15 years old prevents Liviu from believing that those bones belonged to his mother. "In the pictures that the police showed me, in 2000, the skull had intact teeth, but I have a clear memory that I went to the dentist with my mother and a tooth was removed. Since no DNA tests were done, I'm not sure those bones belonged to my mother. Because I think he's still alive, I didn't even issue him a death certificate. "

The second victim, whose skeletal remains were scattered 800 meters away from Maria Bîru's remains, was named Safta Ciubotaru, was 30 years old and lived in a ruined village near Bârlad. He worked seasonally in Turkey. On October 10, 2000, he had left his sister's studio in Bârlad to take an interest in a travel agency in Vaslui when he could return to work abroad. He took the opportunity from Bârlad. "He woke up around 7:00 in the morning, got dressed and told us that he was going to Vaslui on business. He wanted to withdraw $ 1,500 from the bank. I didn't know he would take the opportunity ", says Safta's brother, Valerică Ciubotaru, 25 years old. According to investigators, the victim most likely hitchhiked in front of the bearing factory in the city.

Relatives continued to console themselves with the idea that Safta might actually have gone straight to Turkey, although no one really believed in that. It was not until three weeks later that they thought of reporting the disappearance to the police. In December, a brother and a sister of Safta, there were 7 brothers to their parents, were called to the police to see if the clothes found in Mitoc Forest belong to Safta. The two recognized the clothing, but also the teeth of one of the skeletons, after the two gold teeth that their sister had on her jaw. As with Maria Bîru, Safta's valuables were not found on her, but investigators do not rule out the possibility that they disappeared when the bodies were eaten by wild animals. According to Elena Ciubotaru, the sister who was present when Safta left home, on the day of his disappearance, the victim wore a half-inch gold wedding ring and a silver chain. Safta's bag wasn't found either. And in the case of this woman, the murderer seemed invisible: no witnesses and no suspects. "It simply came to our notice then. If it was established, I would have been the author, ”says police commissioner Constantin Bărbieru.

Commissioner Adrian Dumitrescu, head of the General Police Inspectorate's Investigation Bureau, explains the procedure for identifying a person, when what is left of him are only bone fragments. "The standard research is the following: a thorough check is made on the spot, to discover traces: keys, documents, clothing. Usually finding clothes is a means, a clue that can lead to identification, but it depends on the case. Then it goes on the recognition by relatives of the found objects. The DNA test has been introduced for two years, which can be done at the request of the family or the case prosecutor, if there are indications that it was a murder. The test is done at IML, it is a long procedure, the bones are macerated - it takes time, and it costs around tens of millions of lei. ''

When she died, Safta left two children behind. Bogdan was 11 years old, and his sister, Andreea, 8. The death of their mother would completely change the destinies of the two. "Her husband had died a month or so before, she had an illness, I don't know her name, something appeared on her skin, I think it was cancer. After Safta died, the children stayed on the roads ", says the victim's brother, Valerică. Because no one in the family could take care of them, the boy was taken to a children's home in Tulcea, and the girl was taken to Bârlad, also to a foster home.

Quote:
A serial killer killed four women between 2000 and 2004 on the Bârlad-Vaslui route. The victims were women who took the "opportunity". Police believe the motive for the crimes was sexual assault, although sexual contact could not be proven in any of the cases. The last victim was Mioara Anuţa Manea from Vaslui, killed in the spring of 2004. The woman had just finished building a house with her husband and was going to have a child.

The cowboy of the Tătărani forest canton drives his cattle through the forest located a few kilometers from the town of Huşi. It is the first day of the last week of the capricious spring in which the sun appeared in the sky. He took her to the cantonment on a path he had never walked to shorten the road. In a shoot in the Thick Forest he sees a pile of thrown clothes. He approaches with the thought that he may find some useful nonsense. When he reaches a few steps, he realizes that the pile of clothes looks like a dismembered doll. With his little mind, the cowboy realizes she's a dead woman. Without a shoe, with his pants down, a wound on his neck and his arms spread across the cross, as if she had been dragged to the edge. He flees and notifies the police in the nearest village, Tătărani. If he hadn't heard that women had been found strangled in the forests of Vaslui, the postmaster would not have believed the cowboy, whom he knew was not all oxen at home. But so, he went to the scene, then called the city police. He remained to monitor the area with binoculars, as he was told not to get too close so as not to damage the tracks.

The 29-year-old woman thrown into the woods had been reported missing a week earlier. Her name was Mioara Anuţa Manea and she had left Vaslui to hitchhike to her mother, Elena, in Şişcani. To celebrate the next day, on Saint Helena, the onomastics. The post chief from Tătărani was the first to reach the body. In order not to damage the tracks, he monitored the area with binoculars

After a few hours, a flurry of police, prosecutors, forensic doctors arrived near the woman's body. "All right, let's catch him now!" It was on their minds. Four years ago, a murderer with the same mode of operation made three more victims and scattered them in the forests between Bârlad and Vaslui. They all hoped that, in Mioara's case, the killer was wrong. "When the Manea case appeared, I said that the strangler had returned. We went to all the prosecutors working on crimes, all the forensic doctors we had at the time, all the IPJ with the criminal investigation service, we also had support from the specialists of the Institute of Criminology who came to the scene. We didn't even enter the criminal field then until they came, because I said they would know better than us ".

But all they had was a corpse in an advanced state of decomposition, a plantar trace (of the sole), which turned out to belong to the cowboy who had found the woman, and a few hairs taken from some branches near the corpse, which they -they immediately sent to the lab. "I don't think we missed anything there and somewhere, on a tree, on a branch, at a height like the tip of a man's head and properly as the corpse was dragged, we found some hairs. I thought those were getting us out of the deadlock. The biocriminalistic analysis showed that it is squirrel hair. " Commissioner Bărbieru states that, during the week that the body was in the forest, it had rained a lot and Mioara's body had already decomposed, so it could not be established whether the woman had been raped or not. Prosecutor Berinde says vaginal samples were taken, but no foreign DNA profile was found. Nothing helpful came out of her fingernails again, with investigators suggesting that the victim was taken by surprise, without time to react, to defend herself in any way.

"Mioara lived in Moara Grecilor, a locality belonging to Vaslui. She had just finished building the house she and her husband were soon to move into. Until recently, he worked as a veterinary technician at the city's zootechnical institute, but, following layoffs, he was content to work at a bread factory in the Greek Mill. On May 20, 2004, she decided to go to her parents in Şişcani: the next day was the day of her mother's name, Elena. "She said that at least now, while I'm still alive, she should enjoy her parents," remembers Mioara's husband. She got home from work around 4:00 in the afternoon, she had agreed not to catch her on the road at night. She ate, worked around the house, then put on a pair of beige pants, a sweater, a faux leather jacket, beige clogs, and told her husband she was ready. The man advised her to leave the next day, that it's already late. He couldn't persuade her. They left together for Vaslui, the husband went down to the city center, because he had to go to work, and the woman went on to the PECO station on the outskirts of the city, where the opportunities are usually taken. "I always told him: be careful in which cars you get in, because I had suffered with some Bessarabians, who did not stop the car and left me very far from the place where I had work, that I had to walk about 2 kilometers back . He told me he wasn't afraid. He had read in the newspaper years ago about the case of the priestess from Creţeşti, found dead in the forest after hitchhiking, but she didn't think that something bad could happen to her ", Ovidiu Manea remembers. and the woman went on to the PECO station on the outskirts of the city, where the opportunities are usually taken. "I always told him: be careful in which cars you get in, because I had suffered with some Bessarabians, who did not stop the car and left me very far from the place where I had work, that I had to walk about 2 kilometers back . He told me he wasn't afraid. He had read in the newspaper years ago about the case of the priestess from Creţeşti, found dead in the forest after hitchhiking, but she didn't think that something bad could happen to her ", Ovidiu Manea remembers. and the woman went on to the PECO station on the outskirts of the city, where the opportunities are usually taken. "I always told him: be careful in which cars you get in, because I had suffered with some Bessarabians, who did not stop the car and left me very far from the place where I had work, that I had to walk about 2 kilometers back . He told me he wasn't afraid. He had read in the newspaper years ago about the case of the priestess from Creţeşti, found dead in the forest after hitchhiking, but she didn't think that something bad could happen to her ", Ovidiu Manea remembers. that I had to walk about 2 miles back. He told me he wasn't afraid. He had read in the newspaper years ago about the case of the priestess from Creţeşti, found dead in the forest after hitchhiking, but she didn't think that something bad could happen to her ", Ovidiu Manea remembers. that I had to walk about 2 miles back. He told me he wasn't afraid. He had read in the newspaper years ago about the case of the priestess from Creţeşti, found dead in the forest after hitchhiking, but she didn't think that something bad could happen to her ", Ovidiu Manea remembers.

From the moment she separated from her husband, there was no witness who could say what happened to Mioara. It is not known if he tried to reach the destination by hitchhiking once or twice. Some children said they saw her in Creţeşti, about halfway, at "take me, uncle". They also gave the color of the car that would have taken it. Great joy for the prosecutors, but it turned out to be an unfounded track. "This was also a variant of work: he took a car directly to Creţeşti, between Creţeşti and the village of Şişcani there is a forest, the place is isolated, cars rarely pass by. And there was a variant: she took a car from Creţeşti, she went to Şişcani, she was assaulted in the forest from Şişcani, after which she was put back in the car, the car came back and instead of taking it to the right , took a left.

Nobody noticed that day the brunette woman, with a faux leather jacket, as she was sitting on the occasion, making cars with her hands, at the PECO in Vaslui, no one saw her on the route elsewhere. Nobody knows what car he got in. No one can even imagine her fear when she saw that the car she was riding in was not going the known way, the horror that came over her after she was brutally hit. Only she knows. And the killer.

The only certain things were that the woman was hit hard in the nose, her face was disfigured, and the cause of death was strangulation with one hand. "As we found the body, it can be assumed very logically that a door was opened, the murderer grabbed her by the legs and dragged her under those bets. The following variant is possible: the woman, when she saw that she was passing the intersection where she was supposed to take the direction of Şişcani, began to shake, and then she was either given a very strong punch, or the most probable variant, that, no, sometimes not all you have to do is make assumptions, he was elbowed. And after that, he got scared and said, well, how do I hide this attempted rape, or what crime he had in his head, and strangled her, and strangled her ", states the prosecutor Berinde. The wedding ring was found on the woman, a gold ring with red pebbles and earrings. The bag in which she had 50,000 lei given by her husband and the documents, as well as Mioara's coat, have not been recovered even today. Both the police officer who handled the case, Commissioner Constantin Bărbieru, and prosecutor Berinde believe that the motive for the crime was sexual.

Men with prostitutes frequently come to the place where the young woman's body was discovered. Although it is a few steps from the main road leading to Tătărani, the body could not be seen due to the vegetation. "It's not an easy road to find, the murderer must have been here before. A few months before, he had plowed exactly on this agricultural road and it was no longer used ", explains the head of the post from Tătărani, the first official to reach the body. He remembers that any traces of cars were completely erased by the two heavy rains that had been in the week when Mioara was reported missing.

The absence of witnesses and traces of DNA, vaginal secretions, plantar traces, traces of blood led to a thin list of suspects. The head of the post from Tătărani says that within the commune there were no criminals accused of murder in a state of freedom at that time, and the prosecutor speaks of a list of people prone to such a thing, but who "did not confirm". Commissioner Bărbieru is certain that Mioara was killed by the same person who four years ago made three more victims in three months: a 29-year-old priestess from Creţeşti, a 46-year-old woman from Răchitoasa, Bacău, and another from Vinderei, 30 years old. Of the last two, only the skeletons have been found. The fact that the murders take place at long intervals and have stopped since 2004 makes the police believe that the killer either died or went abroad, he has either moved or no car or car. At the Vaslui County Police Inspectorate, Mioara's photo still hangs on the panel, next to the robot portrait of a suspect in the case of the first woman found strangled in the forest.

For Mioara's husband, Ovidiu, time stopped one day in 2004. He and his wife had just finished building a beautiful house, where they had to raise their children. This was their next plan: to be parents, and because they had some problems, a doctor had promised them that by the end of the year, their greatest wish would come true. It hasn't been like that before. In the cold and petrified house that May day, Ovid leads his life, sometimes drowning his bitterness in drink. In the photos he shows us, from the period when Mioara lived, another man looks at us. The present, aged prematurely, stirring his misfortune in his heavy fists, seems to live by virtue of inertia. "I've never met a woman like that before: she was tight-lipped, she didn't drink, she didn't smoke. He liked to make tapestries. When I saw her at Morga, dead, I was done. He didn't know his face. That's the thing… ”Ovidiu remembers that when he reached his in-laws to see if Mioara had reached Şişcani, his mother-in-law, Elena, said pale:“ That's why I dreamed of yellow tulips ”. Mioara's father died a year after the murder of his daughter - "disgusting".

Between 2000 and 2004, four women were found dead between Vaslui and Bârlad. They had all gone to take the opportunity and ended up strangled or strangled. Seven years after the first murder, the killer or criminals are still at large. In Vaslui in 2008, hitchhiking became a local sport. Dozens of single women wait every day for "take me, uncle."

Between 2000 and 2004, four hitchhikers were killed. In neither case was the killer caught. Some investigators believe it is a single serial killer. Others say there are separate cases. How many occasional killer drivers are now at large? Dozens of single women hitchhike in Vaslui right now, when you read this article.

Maria Bîru, 46 years old, was killed in August 2000. She had left for Vaslui. Safta Ciubotaru, 30, and Marcela Tomozei, 29, died in October. Both had left with "take me, uncle" also to the county seat municipality. In 2004, Mioara Manea, 29 years old, was last seen in Vaslui, going to hitchhike on the road leading to Bârlad. She was found breathless after a week. Here are the clues that lead to the conclusion that all four murders were committed by a serial killer, but also the reasons that led investigators to believe that there may be more killers.

It is assumed that three of the four victims, with the exception of Mioara Manea, took the opportunity from exactly the same place, in front of the SC Rulmentul SA Bârlad factory.
The driver who was supposed to take them to their destination killed them by similar methods: strangulation or strangulation. Marcela Tomozei was strangled with the scarf she wore around her neck. Mioara Manea died strangled with one hand. In the case of Safta Ciubotaru and Maria Bîru, found skeletal, the exact cause of death could not be established. No fatal blows with blunt objects were found on the bones and they are believed to have died like the other two. Both Manea and Tomozei showed signs of hitting, possibly with their fists or elbows. In Tomozei, they were less pronounced and could appear from an accidental hit during the transport of the corpse. La Manea is almost certain that she was hit hard by the murderer. His nose bones were fractured. No traces of fighting or signs were found in any of the bodies that the women had defended themselves: Tomozei's clothes were arranged, in Manea no remains with foreign DNA profiles were found under her nails. It is assumed that the individual waited and stalked the exact moment when he could take the women by surprise. The place where the victims were killed is supposed to be the same: the right front car seat. No traces of any fighting were found at the place where the bodies were found, a sign that they were carried there after the deed. the right front car seat. No traces of any fighting were found at the place where the bodies were found, a sign that they were carried there after the deed. the right front car seat. No traces of any fighting were found at the place where the bodies were found, a sign that they were carried there after the deed.

The profile of the victims, with the exception of Maria Bîru, is similar. All young, up to 30 years old, beautiful. "Beer was totally different from the others: much older, much more corpulent, small in stature. But still (no - "it's over"), gone on occasion. He may have come from Berheci. Either he came in pieces from Berheci to Bârlad and from Bârlad he took something else to Vaslui, or he went directly. ” Chronologically, Maria Bîru is the first of the four women hitchhiked and killed. Apart from the clothes, none of the woman's personal belongings were found.

Three of the victims were killed in a short period of time (August-October 2000). Marcela Tomozei died just two days after Safta Ciubotaru. However, the date of Manea's death could contradict the hypothesis of the same murderer. Between the three murders and her case, there is a period of almost four years in which the murderer did not act. "Initially, I said he was a serial killer who wouldn't give up until he was caught. You realize that, seeing that a year, two, three passed, we had nothing left, we began to check those who went to prison after that. When Manea's case appeared in 2004, I said, "Done, the killer has reappeared," recalls case prosecutor Ovidiu Berinde.

The exact motive for each of the murders is unknown. However, in the 2000 cases, the jewelry disappeared from the body. Thomas's priestess had two rings, a gold chain and a bracelet. Safta and Bîru had wedding rings, which were not found. However, it is possible that they were lost in the forest, because the skeletons were devoured by wild animals. In the case of 2004, Mioara Manea had all the jewelry on her (a pair of earrings, a ring and a wedding ring, all made of gold). Another difference between Manea and Tomozei is that, if the latter had her clothes arranged on her, the former was found with her pants torn and her blouse raised. "There were some indications that it was an intention of sexual assault in Manea's case. Vaginal smears were taken, but no other DNA profiles were found, "said prosecutor Berinde.

In all these cases, the place where the perpetrator abandons his victim is a forest. The killer is very careful that his victims are discovered as late as possible. Except for the priestess, the bodies were found so late that too much evidence could not be collected. Safta Ciubotaru and Maria Bîru were found after three months, almost next to each other, in the same forest, ten kilometers away from the nearest human settlement. The chances of two different criminals throwing them in exactly the same place are almost nil. The killer or killers know very well the areas where they abandon their bodies. Manea was found near Huşi, on a former forest road that someone who had not known the area for a long time would not have found. The priestess was also thrown into an edge inaccessible to someone who did not know the "Cărămidărie" area near Bârlad. The files of the four are analyzed by the same prosecutor precisely because it is largely believed that he was the same author. There is even a list of reasons in the file that support the hypothesis that the death of women "was due to the criminal activity of the same perpetrator." One of the arguments that appears here: "the predominant color of the clothing worn by the victim are likely to attract attention, to be considered light, possibly from the category of prostitutes."

"The differences between Manea, killed in 2004, and Tomozei, since 2000, make me believe that it is not about the same author. I've always had this disagreement with my colleague. He thought he was alone. I think there are separate, unrelated cases. I would also link the other two women killed in 2000 to Tomozei's situation and I would assume that he is the same author who probably in that period, in the summer-autumn of 2000, practiced a kind of taxi, "believes the prosecutor who now deals with case, Ovidiu Berinde. The investigator who dealt with the respective crimes before him, Vasile Şelaru, moved to the Prosecutor's Office in Botoşani, tells us that it is not yet possible to rule on the number of killers, there being arguments for both options. However, the police commissioner Constantin Bărbieru is determined: he is the same murderer in all four cases. According to Vaslui police statistics, it would have been healthier to have only one author, and not four, on the grounds that there would be fewer cases with unknown authors (AN). Commissioner Bărbieru says that for some of the police the figures are very important at the end of the year: “There were our bosses that: Băăă! And you didn't! And you didn't find it! You did "AN-eu" again. For some, statistics are important. Not for me: I always thought that instead of those women she could be my wife, she could be my daughter ”. Commissioner Bărbieru says that for some of the police the figures are very important at the end of the year: “There were our bosses that: Băăă! And you didn't! And you didn't find it! You did "AN-eu" again. For some, statistics are important. Not for me: I always thought that instead of those women she could be my wife, she could be my daughter ”. Commissioner Bărbieru says that for some of the police the figures are very important at the end of the year: “There were our bosses that: Băăă! And you didn't! And you didn't find it! You did "AN-eu" again. For some, statistics are important. Not for me: I always thought that instead of those women she could be my wife, she could be my daughter ”.


"At least in the case of Tomozei and Manea, the murderer can be caught. I think it's only a matter of time before they get their hands on it, but it's a lot of work ", says the former case prosecutor Vasile Şelaru. The police are still checking some clues that, for reasons that would seriously endanger the investigation, we cannot make public. It would not be the first time in Vaslui that a criminal would have been caught after such a long distance. "I had another crime committed in 1986. He was an old man found stabbed in front of one's door. In 1994 we managed to find the killer. He was the owner of the house. She had stabbed the old man because she had seen him urinate on his fence one night. The murder lasted 30 seconds. He got out of bed, stabbed him and then went to bed again ", says Commissioner Bărbieru.

Marcela Tomozei was a priestess in the village of Creţeşti and worked as a nurse at the Hospital from Huşi, where she commuted. On October 12, 2000, the woman got into a used car on the outskirts of Tecuci. The next day, her body was found near the brick factory in Bârlad. Marcela had been strangled with her own scarf. The woman's jewelry and scarf were missing.
Does anyone have any insight on the meaning/use of the word priestess in this context?

Re: Romania - "CASE OF THE "HIGHWAYS"

i am romanian. priestess could only mean a common woman married to an orthodox priest. nothing more. regarding the prosecutor stating the murders being prescribed in a few years... it means statue of limitations. idk when he said that but currently afaik in the EU murder is exempt from statue of limitations. so they shouldnt invoke that. it doesnt make sense for sexual assault to not be part of the process. if they didnt find evidence its because the lack of funds available. that makes the cases stall. if costs arent covered by a private party then good luck. the county where this happened is 1st on poverty list. they are regarded as americans would say 'people of walmart'. this doesnt help when trying to catch a potential serial killer. i dont even think we have a DNA database in my country
