His friends called him a "dreamer" and a gift to the world. They are mourning the death of a 22-year old man who was on vacation in Greece. He just celebrated graduation and was a club when a fight broke out.

The Austin, Texas graduate suffered fatal head injuries. He would die at the local hospital.
The Zakinthos Police arrested the men and they will be tried in court for murder.
Bakari was with friends when these foreign nationals were harassing women. A bar goer sat a drink on a table occupied by a different group. After Bakari left the bar, another heated confrontation lead to these thugs serving him a knuckle style chili with toe jam side order.
They threw him on the street and left him for dead.
