Search continues for Karlskrona murder suspect

Police are still searching for a 20-year-old man suspected of stabbing a 62-year-old man to death in Karlskrona on Monday morning.

Police authorities nationwide have been advised to look out for the suspect after a number of house searches in Karlskrona failed to reveal his whereabouts.

The victim was the father of the suspect’s ex-girlfriend, Blekinge Läns Tidning reports.

The murder is reported to have taken place shortly before lunchtime when the older man intervened to prevent a fight between his daughter and the 20-year-old.

Police in Karlskrona also described the murder as a “relationship drama” but were reluctant to reveal any further details.

The suspect is a Karlskrona resident with a history of violent crime.
