  Karpova: Some sources state that his birthday was Mar-05-1937 others that it was Apr-05-1936 which date is correct?. Did he really die on April-05-2005 or April-09-2005?

E.g.
http://www.indochess.com/news_maint... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragol...
http://sr.wikipedia.org/sr-el/%D0%9... http://chess.about.com/library/week...
http://www.chesscenter.com/twic/twi...

Feb-11-08  brankat: <Karpova> <GM Dragoljub Minic was found dead in his apartment in Novi Sad on 9th April 2005. His friends, not being able to contact him for several days when he did not respond to phone calls or even the house entry intercom, finally forced open his apartment door to discover the grim news. Doctors said that he died from a heart attack approximately on his 69th birthday on April 5th....> From INDO Chess.

Seems to be quite a likely "scenario". Exactly the same happened with my father only 3 months ago.

For months I've trying to get someone to add a photo to old GM Borislav Kostic's player's page. Asked on his page, CG.com forum, the Librarian's forum, but no response.

Thanks Stony.
