Prisoner boasts about killings in Sweden
Jul 02,2007 00:00 by UPI

MALMO, Sweden - A man imprisoned in Bosnia has reportedly admitted to friends that he killed at least 10 people while he was living in Sweden a number of years ago.

Swedish authorities from Malmo and Gothenburg plan to travel to Bosnia to question Goran Kotaran, 24, about unsolved killings in their cities, The Local reported Monday.

Gotaran was a member of a gang called Original Gangsters when he was convicted of two slayings in Gothenburg in 2002 and sentenced to psychiatric care.

He was deported from Sweden in 2005 and wound up in a Bosnia prison last month for three killings committed near the Croatian border.

Witnesses said Kotaran was bragging that he killed more people in peacetime than his father killed during the war, The Local reported.
