Severin Krasimirov left Bulgaria for Germany on Sunday, the day after the rape and murder, Bulgarian newspaper 168 Chasa reports. "Work with him is continuing", Teodor Atanasov, the head of Ruse regional police, said.
The Bulgarian government has indicated Marinova's attack was not about her work.
Marinova was not directly involved in the investigation, but her report on the two journalists touched on a sensitive topic in Bulgaria, which is seen as the most corrupt European Union member state.
Authorities have yet to find a motive behind the murder and said there was no evidence yet to connect her murder to her work.
Chief prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov said Monday that investigators were considering "all leads" including possible links to Marinova's professional activity.
"In certain countries there is just not enough enforcement of the law", Robert Mahoney, deputy executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, told NPR.

Marinova is the third journalist to be murdered in Europe in the past 12 months after Jan Kuciak in Slovakia in February and Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta in October 2017. A Bulgarian investigative online media site went further, calling for an independent worldwide inquiry and saying corruption could compromise an investigation by Bulgarian law enforcement.
