The Latest Headlines: Serbian Hitman Shot Dead in Front of Family in Brazil
A shocking incident unfolded in Brazil, where a Serbian man was fatally shot in front of his family. The victim, Darko Geisler, 43, has been identified as a wanted hitman on Interpol’s list.
According to reports from Fox News, the gunman approached Geisler, his wife, and their three-year-old son as they returned home and were stowing away their bikes. In a horrifying turn of events, the assailant opened fire, killing Geisler in front of his loved ones.
Investigations into the murder revealed that Geisler had been a wanted hitman for almost a decade. Luiz Ricardo Lara Dias Jr, the lead officer in the case, disclosed that Geisler had been living in Brazil under a false Slovenian identity. The victim’s passport, initially believed to be his, turned out to belong to a Slovenian citizen who had lost it in 2017.
Further research into Geisler’s online presence uncovered his true identity as a Serbian hitman wanted for multiple homicides and possession of weapons and explosives charges in Montenegro. It is believed that Geisler had fled to Bosnia after an incident on Christmas Day in 2014, where a man was killed at a prison gate.
Geisler managed to evade capture for several years, living a seemingly ordinary life in Brazil. He met his future wife around 2015 or 2016, and she claimed to have no knowledge of his true identity. Even their neighbors were unaware of his secret past, knowing him as a carpenter who would take his son to school and engage in friendly conversations despite his limited Portuguese skills.
The gunman responsible for Geisler’s death wore a mask and gloves and fled the scene in a black car. Authorities from Brazil and Montenegro are now working together to investigate the circumstances surrounding the hitman’s demise.
As this shocking story continues to unfold, The Independent has reached out to Interpol for further information. The tragic incident serves as a reminder of the hidden dangers that may lurk within communities, even in seemingly peaceful places..
