Kosta Kecmanović (13), who killed nine students and security guards and wounded five children and a history teacher at an elementary school in Belgrade on May 3rd, was interested in his younger sister for the first time. The mass murderer from Vračar was placed at the Clinic for Neurology and Psychiatry for Children and Youth in Belgrade, and a professional examination is underway, which is supposed to determine, among other things, whether Kosta is mentally healthy.
Until recently, Kosta didn’t even ask about his father, mother and sister until a few days ago. “No one understood how it was possible for a child to not ask about his family at any time. He only complained that he was bored, so he asked for a computer to pass the time. But he never asked about his father to Vladimirmom Miljani and younger sisters. Now the doctors were shocked when Kosta asked them during the conversation if they knew what his sister was doing,” a source told The informer.
The bones said that his sister was with his mother, but that they did not know where they were. “The juvenile suspect thought about it and replied, ‘That’s good,'” said Informer’s interlocutor.
In the event that the court and psychiatrists assess that Kosta is a danger to the environment, which is not at all controversial, he can remain locked up in a psychiatric hospital, regardless of the fact that his parents may oppose this and that he is criminally irresponsible.
A source from the psychiatric institution explains that all conditions for neuropsychiatric expertise are determined by the court. “The court must specify what exactly needs to be established with the expertise. It may request that the expert or the institution make a statement about the general mental health of the person for whom the expert opinion was ordered, and to make a statement about whether this person is a danger to himself or the environment,” writes the Serbian portal.
