Police are investigating whether a 64-year-old man should be added to the death toll from the so-called methanol scandal. A preliminary analysis suggests that the man from the Kroměříž area could be the 49th victim of toxic spirits but a final autopsy will determine whether that is the case. In spite of dismantling the gang believed to be behind the methanol affair, police say that around 2,000 litres of contaminated spirits are still unaccounted for. Many methanol producers bosses and victims came from the south-eastern Zlín region.
