Montenegro was shrouded in blackness by the crime in Cetinje in which ten of his fellow citizens died at the hands of Vuk Borilović (34), and there could have been more victims if the killer had not been stopped by bullets in his bloody rampage. This crime took place a decade after the brutal quadruple murder in the north of Montenegro, which also records a rarity, the youngest mass murderer who, when he liquidated his family, was only 14 years old.

The Cetinje massacre left the entire region in shock and reminded of multiple crimes that happened not only in Montenegro but also in Serbia, where the massacre in the village of Velika Ivanča near Mladenovac in early 2013 is remembered as the most massive crime. Then Ljubiša Bogdanović (60) was wounded At dawn, he killed 13 people with a gun, including his closest ones, and sentenced himself. He killed his mother Dobrila and his son Branko in his house, and then broke into his first neighbors, where he killed all five members of the Despotović family, including a two-and-a-half-year-old boy. The bloody feast continued in the house of Ješić and Mijajilović, and he also killed two relatives. In the end he committed suicide.

The massacre with nine victims and two seriously wounded people happened at the end of July 2007 in Jabukovac near Negotin when Nikola Radosavljević (32) sowed death with a hunting rifle. Before the crime, he tried to kill himself by jumping into a well, but his neighbor prevented him from doing so. He then took a rifle and went into the village where he shot everyone he came across. At the main hearing in the District Court in Negotin, he was acquitted, as the team of expert neuropsychiatrists of the Belgrade Correctional Facility found that, at the time of the crime, he was insane, i.e. he suffered from acute paranoid psychosis with a feeling of being threatened and a constant idea that someone wanted to harm him . Jabukovac was also the scene of multiple murders three years ago, when Davor Pernić ran into Raja Kazimirović’s estate, where, as originally believed, he killed four people out of self-interest. When he was arrested, he named Maja Bađikić, with whom he was in an emotional relationship, as an accomplice. He was sentenced to 36 years in prison for two murders, and Maja, as it turned out, liquidated two people and received a maximum sentence of 40 years.

In Leskovac, on July 27, 2002, Dragan Čedić killed his ex-wife Biljana and six members of her family with an automatic rifle, and wounded five others. In Žitište, in July 2016, Siniša Zlatić (38) killed in the cafe Makijato

five people, and wounded as many as 22, after he saw his ex-wife Dijana with her new partner Stevan Jojić. In addition to the two of them, he killed three other people. There were several multiple crimes in Montenegro, and among the bloodiest was the one in the village of Rijeka Marsenića, when ex-policeman Slavko Milović from Andrejevica killed almost the entire family of his ex-wife. Four people from Otovic were killed, and one person was wounded. The killer then blew himself up with a hand grenade in front of the police. That he had been preparing the murder plan for a long time is confirmed by his arrival at dusk, on foot to the village, as well as the fact that he brought two pistols, several hand grenades and several mines.

In Bijelo Polje, 19 years ago, a multiple murder took place when Novo Sošić, a worker of the Montenegro road, came to the home of his cousin Vuksan Sošić and brutally liquidated him, his wife, daughter and son, and their second son survived the massacre. At the trial, not only did he not show an iota of remorse for the crime he had committed, but he also loudly regretted not “leaving a trail” for Vuksan. He committed the crime because of a field owned by the Vuksans and his ancestors.

Massacre after the wedding

In Martonoš near Kanjiža, seven people lost their lives in 2015 when Rade Šefer (55) killed his daughter-in-law Natalija, her parents Sandor and Karolina, his wife Roza and her parents after his son’s wedding. He

was dead drunk and fired several shots from a hunting rifle and killed these people in two villages, Martonoš and Oron.

Fatal dog bite

Exactly 30 years ago, Kosta Damjanović killed nine people and wounded several others in Pušonjski Do near Pljevlja. In the bloody campaign, he was stopped by one of the attacked villagers who stole his rifle and killed him. Kosta’s family then moved out, and their house soon burned down in a fire one night. The massacre happened when he and his father and brother took a dog for vaccination that bit the leg of Zoran Martić, the son of the murdered Vukota, after which a quarrel arose. Vukota punched Kosta in the face, after which he ran home, grabbed a rifle and started shooting.
