Slobodan Dragic's Facebook Page Offers Peek Into Life of Accused Killer
On Thursday, deputies say,Slobodan Dragic
's divorce from his wife, Jelena, reached a bloody end. During an argument on their front lawn, Dragic pulled out a .38-caliber gun and shot her in the shoulder. "You are killing me," Jelena cried out, before Dragic leveled the pistol and shot her in the head.
Now charged with murder, Dragic's life will soon be analyzed by police, defense attorneys, and others in hopes of finding clues for why he allegedly killed his wife.
The first look into his personal thoughts come from his Facebook page, mostly a collection of links Dragic didn't update often. Many of his updates are links to videos by Serbian singer Nedeljko Bajic Baja. One link
forwards to a page with a video to "see what it's like" serving in the U.S. Air Force.
Dragic, a Bosnian Serb, has 62 "friends" on the page, all of them appearing to have Serbian names. His only written update on February 7 is in Serbian and an apparent plea for help for a friend's son.
As for photos, there are few. He has a profile photo of himself leaning against a car, one leg up, palm trees dotting the skyline behind him.
And then there are the photos uploaded December 26, 2009, titled "Slike iz Milwaukee," or pictures from Milwaukee. There are three of them, dated from February 2005. He's smiling happily with his wife and cuddling with two children. The girl is wearing a shirt that reads: "Love, Laugh, Smile."
