Man Charged in Mexican Tourist’s Killing in Croatia

ZAGREB – Prosecutors in Split have filed charges against the Croatian man who allegedly murdered a Mexican tourist in the resort city last year, judicial officials said Monday.

Edi Misic is accused of killing Selena Graciano Macedo last August.

The 28-year-old Misic has been charged with “committing murder in an especially cruel and extremely insidious manner,” judicial officials said.

Misic could be sentenced to up to 40 years in prison if convicted of the murder.

The 31-year-old Graciano Macedo was murdered in Split’s popular Marjan park on Aug. 21 and her body was found buried nearby four days later.

The victim’s brother, Enmanuel Graciano, said they arrived in Split the same day she was killed as part of a trip around Europe.

The siblings separated because Selena wanted to visit a church and the zoo, while her brother preferred to head back to their hotel and rest, Enmanuel Graciano said.

Misic, an unemployed man with no criminal record, was identified by a neighbor last September as the owner of the bloody AC Milan jersey bearing the name “Reksi” that was found near the crime scene, police said.

Investigators initially found a sandal and hat belonging to the victim, whose throat was cut, but they later discovered evidence of a struggle along with her backpack and a bloody knife.

Investigators found fingerprints and DNA at the crime scene.

The motive for the murder has not been determined, judicial officials said. EFE
