Trollhättan murder suspect turns himself in
10:16 CEST+02:00
A man has handed himself in to the Swedish embassy in Warsaw and is expected to travel to Sweden for questioning in connection with the suspected murder of a 23-year-old mother of two who is still missing in western Sweden.

The 36-year-old man has told his Swedish defence lawyer, Tommy Nilsson, that he is innocent and has no idea where the woman could be.

"The police has not found anything new that is substantial," Nilsson told the TT news agency, adding that his client had voluntarily handed himself in.

"He had a ticket to come home (to Sweden), but chose instead to go to the embassy to avoid any commotion," said Nilsson, who was on the phone with his client when the 36-year-old walked in to the embassy.

Nilsson said any suspicion against his client was circumstantial. The 36-year-old has been arrested once before, on suspicion of kidnapping the woman (människorov), but was released.

He is now set to be questioned in connection with murder, although the missing woman has yet to be found. She has been missing from her apartment in Trollhättan since June 30th. There were substantial amounts of blood in the apartment.

The suspect has said earlier that he was set to turn himself in to clear his name.
