    The spokeswoman could not confirm when US authorities brought charges against Tulja, but he "apparently fled the United States''.

     

    There are indications obtained from police sources in Belgium and in Albania, that he allegedly "killed several more women in those countries,'' during the 1990s, she said.

     

    "Several pieces of evidence and some documents were seized in his some that police say may be connected to the alleged crimes committed in the foreign countries," Popovic said.

     

    Tulja was born in Montenegro, and re-settled there in the late 1990s.
