A 17-year-old was forced into a car and then found dead in a wooded area.

Now the investigation has progressed – five people are suspected of involvement.

– Two people were just arrested for aiding and abetting murder and aiding and abetting kidnapping, says Lukas Tigerstrand, chamber prosecutor.

On the evening of July 25, the 17-year-old went with three other people to Alphyddevägen in Nacka, south of Stockholm. According to information in the investigation, he had gone there to mediate in some kind of conflict within the criminal environment.

– He sits there and waits with three other people when this car arrives, says Lukas Tigerstrand.

Two masked and armed people came out of a silver Opel Astra and forced the 17-year-old into the car, according to prosecutors. In connection with the incident, the Opel was captured on surveillance images from a parking garage and a construction site.

Ran away from SiS home

The following day, the 17-year-old was found dead in a wooded area, in nearby Orminge. He had been subjected to severe violence.

On Thursday afternoon, two 25-year-old men were arrested by Nacka District Court, suspected of aiding and abetting murder and aiding and abetting kidnapping.

– I think the evidence was enough to demand that they be detained as perpetrators of both crimes. But the district court thought that based on the evidence that I presented, it was only sufficient for assistance. We don’t want to go into what that helping deed should have consisted of now.

From before, a person is in custody, also aged 25, suspected of aiding and abetting both crimes.

In addition, two men are under arrest, currently suspected of murder and kidnapping. One of these is the young man who was placed in a SiS home that Aftonbladet previously reported on. At the time of the murder, he must have been on the run.

The car was found half burnt

The silver Opel that the 17-year-old was taken away in is believed to have been found on July 30 in Östberga. Attempts had been made to set fire to it, but traces have been secured. They have previously gone out and asked for tips about the car.

– It is still an interesting trail, and we are still interested in observations, says prosecutor Lukas Tigerstrand.

Tips can be left to the police on telephone number 114 14.
