On May 25th, a tragic mass shooting in Constantia, Cape Town, claimed the lives of four individuals, two men and two women. The victims were believed to be connected to Krasimir Kamenov, a notorious figure from the Bulgarian underworld. Kamenov, his wife, their bodyguard, and their nanny were mercilessly executed in what authorities suspect was a targeted hit with roots in Kamenov’s criminal past.

Kamenov’s Criminal Past and Red Notice Status

Kamenov’s name recently appeared on Interpol’s Red Notice list, marking him as a wanted man for murder and extortion in his native Bulgaria. His illicit activities seem to have caught up with him, endangering himself and those around him.

The Eerie Silence and Brutality of the Attack

Residents reported hearing no noise on the day of the shooting, despite the property’s front gate being forced open by a vehicle. This chilling detail raises questions about the sophistication and brutality of the assailants. It’s believed that silenced firearms were used in the attack, carried out ruthlessly.

Identification of the Victims and Kamenov’s Fate

Upon arrival, police found the four lifeless victims at the scene. While authorities hesitated to confirm if Kamenov was among the deceased, a statement from the South African Police Service (SAPS) eventually revealed that all four victims were of Bulgarian descent. Sources in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, confirmed Kamenov’s fate, identifying him as one of the unfortunate victims of the shooting.

Investigation and Community Response

As investigators search for clues to uncover the motive behind the crime, the Constantia community is shocked by the brutality within its usually peaceful streets. The ongoing investigation hopes to bring those responsible to justice.

This tragic event of underworld intrigue and ruthless violence leaves behind a trail of destruction and a lingering air of unease. Moreover, the impact of the Constantia mass shooting will undoubtedly reverberate through the community and beyond for years to come.
