Only one of the victims has been positively identified, the 25-year-old son of the vehicle’s owner.
The other victim is thought to be a 42-year-old man.
The 35-year-old, who has a warrant out for his arrest on suspicions of murder, came to the memorial service in Värmland in western Sweden and introduced himself as a friend of the victims, TV4 reports.
“He came here, we listened to him and consoled him when he cried,” the 42-year-old’s brother told the local TV4 affiliate.
According to the police, there is a connection between the 42-year-old and the 35-year-old suspect.
Police believe the victims were killed with aggravated violence on a farm between Genarp and Dalby in Lund municipality.
Investigators also suspect that several people were involved in the killings.
A large pile of dirt has been taken from the murder scene, most likely on a trailer, to hide evidence that may have been left at the scene.
The 35-year-old has previously been convicted of several drug and traffic violations. He was also caught by customs officials in mid-September attempting to bring a small amount of cocaine across the Öresund Bridge in a case which has yet to be closed.
