According to the UK's Daily Mail, Henderson is a 22-year-old from Austin, Texas who was vacationing on the island of Zakynthos in Greece. Citing Greece's state news agency ANA-MPA, the network said Henderson was beaten by 10 men in the brawl, which reportedly began in the bar before spilling into the streets after security asked the men to leave.

Police said Friday that a 34-year-old Greek and a 32-year-old British man of Serbian origin have been arrested and were to appear before a prosecutor on murder charges.

Police have yet to reveal a motive in the attack, but told the news station the beating involved two groups of people - including both bar staff and those hanging around the facility. It is unclear why the fight broke out.

Zakynthos, the third-largest island in the Ionian Sea, is known for its nightlife, picturesque views, crystal-clear beaches and limestone cliffs.

Henderson was from Austin, Texas, and was studying at the University of Arizona where he was taking business finance and entrepreneurship noted the dailymail.

A US State Department official said that an American citizen had been killed on Zakynthos and that it was providing consular services to his family.

Tyler Pittman, another of Henderson's friends, said: 'I guess I'll never meet someone as inspirational and influential as that man.

Kerber fights to round four
Kerber, who reached the final previous year , again showed signs of the vulnerability that has dogged her game in 2017. By then, Kerber had turned into a backboard, who maintained the threat to nail winners at every opening.

Henderson's family and friends said he was "so determined in life" and that it was "always a handsome day" when was around.

The man, identified by his family as Bakari Henderson from Austin, Teas, was in Greece to conduct a photo shoot for his new fashion line, according to the Austin-Statesman. "We offer our sincerest condolences to family and friends, and out of respect for the family during this hard time, we have no further comment".

"As you can imagine, our family is devastated by the recent loss of our beloved son Bakari Jaward Henderson".

John Gramlich, Henderson's friend, told NBC affiliate KXAN that they met in elementary school and have since become best friends.

University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins offered his condolences to Henderson's loved ones. "Our hearts and prayers are with his friends and family", Robbins said.

Alcohol-related violence also led to the 2011 death in Lagana of a 19-year-old British tourist following a fight with two Greek taxi drivers. "He was big thinker and enjoyed coming up with new business ventures". It is always a tragedy when a young life ends before it has really yet to begin.
