Two men arrested for dismemberement-murder
Arrest made today (Jan 3) in central Halmstad
Two men were arrested in Halmstad under suspicion of murder. A 46 year old man is suspected of murdering Marcus Norén, and a 28 year old man is suspected for aiding the murder. The older man has admitted some of the points. This night the body of Marcus Norén was carried out of an apartement in central Halmstad.
The police were secretive directly after the arrest, but at a press conference during Friday evening the chief investigator Lars Hamrén could confirm that the older man is facing a charge of murder, and the younger man the charge of aiding a murder.
At the same time as the press conference, a car arrived at an apartment
in central Halmstad. The remains of Marcus Norén were carried out
and taken to the morgue.
The night before the police had received some very interesting pieces of information. This became conclusive for solving the case.
During the day the police put on a search for the two men, and placed the apartment under surveillance. Around 2:00 pm the two men arrived. They were immediately arrested and taken to the police station in Halmstad.
The two suspects are formerly known by the police – both in cases of crimes of violence. The older man admitted to some points during the early interrogations, while the younger man denies involvement in any crime.
During the Friday evening press conference, the police dismissed all speculations of connections to the role playing games that Marcus Norén played.
Furthermore there is no information pointing towards any previous connection between the the two suspect and Marcus Norén.
