The 23-year-old French student who had been missing for two weeks in southern Sweden was found dead on Wednesday night, with police stating that they no longer suspected any foul play.

The student, Samuel Babin, was found dead in a wooded area in Karlskrona just after 8pm on Wednesday.

"Samuel Babin was found dead yesterday night by the Blekinge Police dog patrols," the police wrote in a statement.

"There is no longer any suspicion of any criminal activity."

Babin was last seen on January 11th at the Blekinge Institute of Technology and his mysterious disappearance led officers to suspect he was kidnapped.

He has been found dead and as s result, no further suspicion of criminal activity or foul play from the police. Is that it? So no inquiries into cause of death to determine whether a homicide investigation is necessary or not? I would normally expect this to be the logical next step, following such a finding. Ha! Swedish criminal justice system!

To me it's not clear. They should say why is it that they don't suspect anything. Two students are found dead in less that one year, shouldn't this be a reason to investigate?

OMG, What a heart breaking story. I can't imagine the anguish he went through. Karlskrona is a strange place with heaps of strange people. It is a place where 1. you either love it and you accept your faith that forever you will be doomed, 2. You hate it and live there in solitude then your kill yourself, 3. They strange people will plan for months how to bump you off. (Indian student last year and now this poor French student) I had two friend who has died there quite tragically in the past four years. Jack C. Louis who invented the Unicornscan died in a rather "suspicious fire" and another friend I cannot name as the investigation is ongoing.

Er, do any of the posters above have access to the investigation of poor Mr Babin's death?
If they have evidence the police may have overlooked or misinterpreted, then it's very important that they inform the police at once.
If, like the rest of us, they know absolutely nothing about how Mr Babin met his death then, for the sake of his friends and family, they should resist from ill-informed speculation and gossip.

You people are real m0r0ns if you think the police are not investigating this further, especially you ZenMonk. You should become a monk because you obviously are not cut out for life in the real world. Gimme a break. Of course the police are going to investigate the cause of this death and it will be reported further soon enough. I think you trolls are just looking for any opportunity to bash Sweden because everyone else around here does and it seems to be the cool thing to do. Get a life.

Perhaps he went to take weed in the woods and passed out there alone. With freezing temperatures, death can only be at the corner.

We know how well trained the police are investigating anything above a speeding incident. Zero a la izquierda

It is very clear that people in Sweden is very fond of foreigners in their country, but I dont really think their love has anything to do with this. It is just another victim of Swedish winter.
