Dead man in Hedemora ‘murdered’

Police in Dalarna are searching for a suspect they believe is linked to a dead man found in a park in central Hedemora.

The unidentified man was found dead Wednesday night and police say they have reason to believe he was murdered.

“We have an idea of who it could be, but I don’t want to say anything before we have an identity,” said Bo Persson, Hedemora police spokesman. “There are circumstances that lead the investigation to murder,” said Persson.

Many people were out in central Hedemora during Wednesday night. Several say the man lying dead in the park. Police were busy tracking down possible witnesses on Thursday morning.

The forensic pathologist is set to announce the cause of death early on Thursday.
