Zemir Begic came to the U.S. from Bosnia in 1996, moving first to Utica, NY, before settling in Waterloo, Iowa, then moving to St. Louis where he married Arijana Mujkanovic, six months ago. Begic died early Sunday morning in St. Louis after four kids walked up and began beating on his car using hammers.
Mujkanovic was in the car when Begic got out confronting them and saw the teens striking her husband with the hammers, before running way. Begic died at St. Louis University Hospital after suffered multiple injuries to his head and abdomen.
After news spread of the fatal attack, resident Bosnians took to the streets to voice their frustrations over what seems to be a developing trend in violence targeted at their community.
“Some of the demonstrators recalled other recent Bosnian victims of violence,” reports St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “including Haris Gogic, 19, who was fatally shot in May 2013 by a robber in his family’s Bevo Mill convenience store.”
Police arrested two male teens, ages 15 and 16 and are still looking for two others, a 16-year-old black male and a 15-year-old Hispanic male. Authorities have yet to release a motive for the attack.
Many are why the mainstream media has yet to cover the newlywed’s death. Unfortunately, the answer is simple – it doesn’t fit the progressive narrative.
