The suspect was a Romanian citizen.

Mr Atanasov later said that no new information had emerged and "the Romanian citizen will be released".

Bulgarian media reported that the park where her body was found is adjacent to a psychiatric facility and that authorities were investigating whether a patient could have attacked Marinova, reported The Washington Post.

Ruse Regional Prosecutor Georgi Georgiev told state media that Marinova's mobile phone, auto keys, glasses and part of her clothing were missing when her body was found.

Marinova, 30, hosted a show last month featuring two investigative journalists who were detained for their work on suspected fraud involving European Union funds.

The attack has shocked the country and drawn worldwide condemnation amid speculation the murder could be linked to Marinova's work as a journalist.

The minister described the murder as "exceptionally brutal" and said Marinova was raped before she was killed.

She presented a current affairs talk programme called Detector for Ruse's small private TVN television.

Authorities in Bulgaria, the EU's poorest member state plagued by rampant corruption, earlier revealed that Marinova had been killed by blows to the head and from suffocation, and had also been raped.

United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters in NY that there has been "a very worrying increase of violence, sexual and otherwise, that's particularly targeting women journalists".

"It is about rape and murder", Interior Minister Mladen Marinov said. "In no way, under any form, never have we received any threats - aimed at her or the television".

"I see deliberate attempts to marginalize this killing and manipulate the public opinion that Viktoria was a victim of a random attack or sexual manslaughter", Assen Yordanov said, adding that Marinova was the only TV journalist who had agreed to host his website's journalists to discuss the investigation.

The programme investigated alleged fraud involving European Union funds linked to big businessmen and politicians.

Harlem Desir, media freedom representative for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's (OSCE) condemned the killing on Twitter, saying that he would closely follow the investigation.
