Fitness coach Nermin Sulejmanovic broadcasted a violent act on Instagram Live, resulting in three fatalities, including his ex-wife. The video quickly went viral on social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit.
Sulejmanovic used the live streaming feature on Instagram to commit and display these horrifying acts on August 11th. Later that day, he tragically ended his own life.
The streaming platform promptly removed the video, but not before it had been widely shared and viewed. As investigations unfolded, police revealed that Sulejmanovic had also taken the lives of a man and his son, identified as Džengiz Onder and Džengiz Denis. Three others were injured during the incident, including a law enforcement officer.

While evading capture, Sulejmanovic released another video claiming responsibility for the deaths. This led to a brief standoff with authorities, which ended with his suicide.
Sulejmanovic was known to local law enforcement due to his troubled past. He had previously been involved with a gang and had been convicted of violent crimes and drug-related offenses. In the now-removed video, he suggested that his ex-wife had been keeping their child from him for over a week, although this claim has not been confirmed by officials.
The incident has sparked a national outcry in Bosnia. Prime Minister Nermin Niksic expressed his shock and sorrow, stating, “I have no words to describe what happened today in Gradacac.” The small town is now grappling with the aftermath of this devastating event, mourning the senseless loss of life.
This tragic incident serves as a stark reminder of the potential dangers of social media platforms when misused. As the world continues to navigate the digital age, it is crucial to remember the profound impact that these platforms can have on society.
