Fourth ‘Teen’ Finally Charged In Zemir Begic Murder

Font Size:

Last November in St. Louis, a Bosnian immigrant named Zemir Begic was beaten to death by four “juveniles” of no given description. The faceless “teens” started damaging Begic’s car, and when he got out, they beat him in the head and face with hammers. Then they left him in the street to die.

That was almost a year ago, but the following is better late than never. Dan Fredman, KMOV in St. Louis:

A fourth teen has been charged in the hammer beating death of a Bevo Mill man in 2014.

Travis Kidd, 17, was certified to stand trial as an adult, a juvenile court ruled. Police said he and three other teens killed Zemir Begic on November 30, 2014…

Kidd is charged with Murder and Armed Criminal Action.

If you don’t recognize the name Zemir Begic, and you’re wondering why such a senseless, brutally violent murder in St. Louis never made national news the way Michael Brown’s death did, scroll back up and take another look at his photo.
