Body of man beaten, tortured and thrown into the Danube in Zemun found in the river
The body was found under a raft, about 30 meters from where it had been thrown into the river
Members of the Interior Ministry today pulled the body of 41-year-old Roberto Romic, a man who was tortured and killed a few days ago on the Zemun Quay, from the Danube.
The body was found under a raft, about 30 meters from where it had been thrown into the river.
Members of the Interior Ministry in Belgrade also arrested three people suspected of killing R.R. (41) with multiple blows, after which they dumped his body into the Danube.
"The suspects are charged with stripping the injured party, who came with them to Zemun Quay, tying him to a pole, then striking and kicking him several times in the head and body, while the suspect M.M. beat his arms and legs with a metal bar," the Ministry said in a statement.
When the victim lost consciousness and stopped giving signs of life, the suspects allegedly dragged him the water and dumped him in the Danube at the Zemun Quay.
According to unofficial information, there are indications that the victim was alive at the time he was thrown into the water. It is also suspected that he had been tortured for almost two hours, and that the problem arose over a woman.
M.M. (52), S.K. (37) and M.I. (26) have been arrested on suspicion of committing the crime of aggravated murder.
The suspects and the victim knew each other and the motive for the crime is most likely a fight over a woman.
