Man who for years walked around Belgrade dressed in plastic bags found dead
Wrapped in black bags, as he had done for years, he ended his life on the street
His home had no roof, he slept and lived under the canopies of Topcider and Hajd Park trees. He made his own clothes - out of black garbage bags.
Yesterday the news came that the body of a man, about 60 years old, was found in Topcider. Wrapped in black bags, as he had done for years, he ended his life on the street.
He also had his "footware" - made out of plastic bottles.
Nobody spoke to him, "bag man" was in his world, walking to his own rhythm, in front of people wondering at the sight of him.
As those who tried to help him say - he did not want to give up on this way of dressing.
Our reporters once came across him near Topciderska Zveda. He was walking through the park, wearing glasses, wrapped in his bags despite the hot weather. He lived that way for years.
