New Development in Deadly St Louis Hammer Attack

A new development has surfaced in the form of a report from the UK’s Daily Mail about the deadly attack by hammer-wielding teenagers Sunday that left a 32-year-old Bosnian immigrant dead in South St. Louis’ Bevo Mill neighborhood.

Arijana Mujkanovic, the fiance of the victim, Zemir Begic, is cited in the report as saying the attack was a “targeted killing” not motivated by hate.

This news comes barely 48 hours after I criticized St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Joel Currier for failing to mention early in his article about the murder that at least some of the teens were black.  Along with my criticism, I shared one minute of video recorded after the attack by an area woman who seemed to offer an opposing take:  “And, of course, it’s a white kid, right after black people running up and down the street saying, ‘Eff the white people, kill the white people.’ This is what we have.”

Hopefully, St. Louis law enforcement officials will get down to the bottom of things after they finish interviewing witnesses, including the woman who shot the aforementioned video which went viral, attracting nearly 167,000 views so far. The last thing St. Louis needs is more racial tension to fuel the Ferguson protests.

Stay tuned for updates!

EXCLUSIVE: Hammers Attack Video From South St Louis

St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Joel Currier’s article about a Bosnian immigrant being murdered by hammer-wielding teenagers fails to mention the possibility that at least some of the teens were black until deep into the article. Conversely, a video shot by a resident of South St. Louis’ Bevo Mill neighborhood reveals heretofore-unpublished details about what happened near the intersection of Gravois Avenue and Itaska Street before the attack that left Zemir Begic, 32, dead.

At the 45-second mark, the woman who recorded the video — whose name I will not share for reasons of her personal safety — says, “And, of course, it’s a white kid, right after black people running up and down the street saying, ‘Eff the white people, kill the white people.’ This is what we have.”

Coming amidst the protests that followed the grand jury’s decision not to indict now-former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, this attack could unleash a powder keg.

UPDATE 12/1/2014 at 1:13 p.m. Central:  The Gateway Pundit picked up the story.

UPDATE 12/1/2014 at 1:21 p.m. Central:  On the Facebook page of the woman who shot the video above, she tells a friend that “a Bosnian man was attacked last night by 4 black teens.”

UPDATE 12/2/2014 at 6:18 a.m. Central:  The video above has been viewed more than 80,500 times during the past 20-plus hours. The general public seems more interested in the truth than in what St. Louis officials say about the crime as highlighted in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, Mayor, police say race played no role in hammer slaying of Bosnian immigrant.

UPDATE 12/3/2014 at 5:12 p.m. Central:  A new development has surfaced in the form of a report from the UK’s Daily Mail about the deadly attack by hammer-wielding teenagers Sunday that left a 32-year-old Bosnian immigrant dead in South St. Louis’ Bevo Mill neighborhood. Read about it here!

UPDATE 12/5/2014 at 7:55 a.m. Central:  The video above has been viewed more than 211,000 times in four days. To read other posts on this topic, click here.
