Twenty one civilians, 5 women and 16 men, were found dead in their doorways and yards after Serbian terrorists attacked the village of Cetekovac on 3 September 1991. The age of the decedents ranged from 18 to 91 years. The oldest victims were women (aged 63, 68, 72, 86 and 91). The wounds found on 19 decedents were characteristic of the long-range gunshot wounds, with projectiles fired mostly from the back or/and the side of the body. The autopsy of one decedent (J. B.) revealed that he died from two stabbing wounds and that those were the only wounds inflicted to the body. The body of the decedent (M. S.) was heavily carbonized so that the cause of the death or even whether he was alive when his body was set on fire could not be estimated.
