One of the biggest monsters in Serbia is hospitalized: He killed and dismembered a child, nobody knows why
Even after a decade and a half this remains a blood-curdling crime. Everyone in Novi Banovci knows about the double murder, but no one knows why it happened
Danijel Jakupek is one of the biggest monsters in the history of our country, because exactly 15 years ago in Novi Banovci, he killed 5-year-old Luka Opacic and his uncle Vasilije Trbovic, 26, in the bathtub in a house, and then scattered their body parts in the Danube.
Since his arrest, Jakupek has been receiving treatment in the Special Prison Hospital in Belgrade.
Even after a decade and a half this remains a blood-curdling crime. Everyone in Novi Banovci knows about the double murder, but no one knows why it happened. Investigstors were unable to establish any motive.
"I believe that Jakupek will remain in the hospital for the rest of his life. There is nowhere for him to return here, his mother sold her house. I heard that she died a year ago. Well, she was the only one who was visiting him. They were extremely close. Jakupek has a brother, but he lives in Germany. As far as I've heard, the brother doesn't even want him mentioned," one of the residents in the settlement next to the Danube told Telegraf.rs.
As our interlocutor says, life goes on.
"For years, we tried to understand why he killed them. He murdered his friend and his nephew who was only five years old at the time. What did this child do wrong? But, it's no good, only Jakupek knows the reasons," added the local.
The investigation established that Jakupek threw dismembered body parts into the Danube, and when Vesna and Dragan Trbovic started to search for their son and grandson, whose disappearance they had reported, the monster joined them in the search. No one could even imagine that the young man and the boy were dead, and that the murderer was right next to them.
Four days later, a fisherman found the boy's decapitated body in the grass by the river, with legs and one arm missing. The next day, in the shallows of the Danube, entangled in the grass, Vasilije's corpse also surfaced, missing the head and one arm.
During the interrogation, Jakupek stated that he enjoyed listening to them scream. However, he avoided saying why he killed them.
He was referred to the Special Prison Hospital for treatment.
