Confidential police photographs of a woman who was raped and murdered in Gothenburg last year have been leaked onto a pornographic website, local newspaper GT reports.

The 27-year-old victim, Elin Krantz, was murdered after she stepped off a tram at a stop in the Hisingen neighbourhood. A 23-year-old man has been charged in connection with her death.

Police are now examining whether the photos published on the internet came from the preliminary investigation into the woman's violent death. Investigators are also seeking to discover if somebody from either within or outside their ranks has breached secrecy regulations and committed a criminal offence.

Krantz and her alleged killer were riding the same tram on the night of her murder in September last year.

Krantz was raped and murdered in a wooded area not far from the tram stop, according to information from the investigation.

According to prosecutors, the suspect hit and/or kicked Krantz with such force that she was left with contusions and haemorrhaging on her head, neck, arms, and legs.

The violence was so severe that it also caused nerve damage in Krantz's brain, resulting in a lack of oxygen.

The 23-year-old is suspected of having raped Krantz by holding her down and forcing her legs apart. He then allegedly dragged her body over uneven ground and then placed it on a large stone block, according to prosecutors.

Included in prosecutors' long list of injuries to Krantz are "burst membranes around the vaginal opening".

According to the prosecutors, the 23-year-old showed "extreme ruthlessness".
