- Man held for 1996 Stockholm murder (23 Nov 13)
The suspect was detained on Thursday shortly after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The charges come as a result of a breakthrough by the Stockholm police cold case unit which is tasked with investigating unsolved murders.
The cold case unit, which works on 2-3 cases at a time, began to explore the possibility that the man who had made the call could have been the same person who had carried out the offence. While this line of inquiry led to the arrest of the 39-year-old man on Thursday, police were unwilling to confirm if they believe it to be the same person.
