Died: March 12, 2017.
Age at death: 10.
Cause of death: Wandering-related, most likely accidental.
Location: Lopare, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

When ten-year-old Konstantin went missing, local authorities began a search, and his town turned out to comb the mountains where he had been lost. However, the search was not as thorough as it could have been because local authorities were unwilling to ask for help from federal authorities, who were their political opponents.

Although it can’t be said for sure whether Konstantin would have been found alive if the authorities had been willing to ask for help, the decision not to do so was made by people who could have foreseen that it would risk his life.
