The details (from wikipedia)


Vukašin Šoškoćanin (Serbian: Вукашин Шошкоћанин; 24 June 1958 – 15 May 1991) was a Croatian Serb war commander. He was president of the Borovo commune and commander of the Borovo Selo Territorial Defense Force during the Croatian War. Born to Milan and Ljubica Šoškoćanin on 24 June 1958, Vukašin had two brothers, Radovan and Dušan. He became a member of the Serb Democratic Party in 1990. Before the war, he was a veterinary technician in Vukovar.

Circumstances surrounding his death are largely unknown. On 15 May 1991 at around 10:30 AM, while returning from a visit to a refugee camp in Vojvodina, he drowned in the Danube river in a "boating accident."

Milan Paroški publicly questioned the official cause of death and claimed that frogmen (either the Yugoslav River Flotilla or the Serbian State Security) were responsible for Šoškoćanin's death. Paroški also claimed that Šoškoćanin was "an excellent swimmer." His death is still labeled under "mysterious circumstances."

After his death, an elementary school in Borovo was named in his honour. He was posthumously awarded the title of "Hero of the People" in Beli Manastir on 25 September 1991.
