6 Serbians arrested in Greece in fatal beating of Texan, 22 – Business Insider

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia says six of its citizens have been
arrested in Greece in the investigation into the beating death of
a 22-year-old Texas man on the island of Zakynthos
(ZAH’-keen-thos).

Serbia’s foreign ministry said Saturday that the detained Serbs
were to appear before a judge.

The family of Bakari (buh-KAR’-ee) Henderson of Austin, Texas,
identified him as the victim. His family said Henderson was in
Greece working on a photo shoot to launch a clothing line. Bakari
graduated from the University of Arizona in May with a business
degree.

“Bakari loved spending time with family and friends, traveling
and meeting new people,” a family statement said, according to
the Austin American-Statesman. “He was a big thinker and enjoyed
coming up with new business ventures.”

Greek police say the victim was beaten to death early Friday at a
bar in Lagana. Officials haven’t released a possible motive for
the attack.

Greek police said Friday that a 34-year-old Greek and a
32-year-old British man of Serbian origin were arrested.
