It’s been four and a half years since Vasile Graure, a 37-year-old truck driver, lit bouncer and fellow immigrant Vladimir Djordjevic on fire at the Good Guys strip club in Glover Park. Djordjevic died after nearly three years in Washington Hospital Center, and Graure will spend nearly 50 years in prison for the killing. But the facts of the case don’t quite capture the human drama. For that, read David Montgomery’s Post article.
