In June 2019, three men were supposed to beat up, restrain, throw in the trunk, take to the forest and kill a 39-year-old resident of Piła (Greater Poland Voivodeship). Investigators found their trail in the spring of this year, when a man who was to be interrogated in another case reported to the policemen. He then admitted that he had witnessed the beating and murder of a 39-year-old three years earlier. He also indicated the place where the body was hidden. Two people were charged in this case, and a third – which, according to the prosecution service, was related to the man’s death – died three years ago in a motorcycle accident.
In the second half of June 2019, Piła officers received a notification about the disappearance of a 39-year-old resident of the city. – Despite the search, the man was not found – says Andrzej Borowiak, a spokesman for the Greater Poland Police. As he pointed out, the breakthrough in this case came in the spring of 2022, when a 41-year-old reported to the Piła headquarters to be questioned in connection with the violation of the court ban on driving. – In the course of activities carried out with him, he announced that he would like to talk about another incident. He admitted that on one night in June 2019 he witnessed the beating and murder of a missing 39-year-old. He also indicated the place where the body was hidden – described Borowiak. An autopsy found in the place indicated by the man confirmed that he was a 39-year-old resident of Piła who went missing three years ago. Officers also found the car in which the murder victim was transported. A detailed inspection of the car confirmed that the vehicle was used in a crime.
