Malmö car park man ?not murdered?

A man whose body was found on Monday in a car park in Malmö was not murdered as originally believed, police say. They now think that the body was dumped in the parking lot and plundered for valuables.

The body has been identified as that of a 39-year old man from Poland.

“He could have got the injuried to his skull from a normal fall,” said Chief Inspector Bo Lundqvist at Malmö police.

“The cause of death has not been established. It could have been some form of overdose, or a completely natural death,” Lundqvist added.

One theory is that the man died in an apartment where the occupier had an insecure tenancy, or some other ‘unsuitable’ place.

“It is not unusual for corpses to be taken away,” said Lundqvist. Police have not found any information about the man in public registers. Polish authorities have been asked to inform the man’s family.

According to Lundqvist, the man’s body was probably taken to the car park in some kind of vehicle. He was found in a sitting position, leaning against a car on Monday afternoon. It is unlikely that he was there for more than ten minutes before being discovered,

He was not wearing a coat, and did not have any valuables on him when he was found – no watch, no money and no jewellery.

“It looks like someone has taken all his valuables,” said Lundqvist.

Sweden Democrat politician charged for dismembering colleague

The former politician has been charged on suspicion of murdering his colleague in an apartment south of Stockholm, after police found body parts in three different locations in the capital.

Sweden Democrat politician charged for dismembering colleague

According to the prosecution, the body parts found in plastic bags in central Stockholm came from a man in his 60s murdered in an apartment in Nyköping, south of Stockholm.

The man is said to have been killed by a pistol shot to the head, after which the 60-year-old charged with the murder dismembered the body.

The suspected murderer, who newspaper Expressen reports is a former Sweden Democrat politician, is said to have moved the body parts multiple times, eventually dumping them across the city.

In total, three body parts were found in two different locations – the Karlsberg canal and in the Djurgården park. Not all parts of the body have yet been found.

“We’ve carried out a comprehensive investigation into the victim and the suspect. We can, to some extent, show how and when the suspect moved the body parts,” prosecutor Marina Chirakova told TT.

The victim, who according to Expressen was also a former Sweden Democrat politician, had been friends with the suspected murderer for a number of years. Prosecutors did not comment on the motive behind the murder.

“That will be discussed in the main hearings,” she told TT.

The suspect was taken into custody in November last year after being arrested in Nyköping. He denies the charges, but accepts certain circumstances related to the case.

Upon his arrest, he resigned from his political obligations and his membership was frozen by the Sweden Democrats.

“I don’t want to comment on his stance on the charges or anything he has said,” she further told TT.

The murder is suspected to have taken place between August 30th and September 16th last year.
