Body found at Lindholmen was Pierre


Linda Genborg 2012-04-20

The body that was found in the water near Lindholmen’s ferry stop on Wednesday was the missing 25-year-old Pierre Nilsson. He disappeared on March 4 after a party in Gamlestaden.

When the body was found on Wednesday it didn’t take long before rumours emerged that it was the remains of Pierre. The family also told the media that the police had informed them that Pierre’s belongings had been found on the body. But the police could not confirm it was Pierre until the identification was completed on Friday morning.

More than 100 people participated in a memorial ceremony for Pierre at Lindholmen on Thursday evening.
