A 17-year old girl has died from injuries sustained following a fall from her fourth floor apartment in the Småland town of Eksjö.


The girl was found on the ground by her parents outside the apartment building around eleven o’clock Sunday morning. They had gone to look for her when she didn’t show up for work.

“She could have fallen sometime during the night. The way she was lying made it difficult to see her,” said Anneli Jonsson from the Jönköping police.

The girl showed no signs of life when emergency personnel arrived on the scene.

She was pronounced dead upon arriving at the hospital in Eksjö.

Police are not sure if the girl fell, jumped, or was pushed.

“There is no obvious suspicion of foul play at this time, although we are trying to build a picture of what has happened by talking to relatives and neighbors,” said Jonsson.
