Body found during missing person search


Ben Kendall 2012-04-15

A body has been found in the Svartedalen nature reserve near Stenungsund. It may be that of Spekeröd resident Marina Johansson who has been missing since July 2010. 

Around 100-150 people from the organisation Missing People Sweden searched the area around Spekeröd, near Stenungsund, on Saturday. They were looking for Marina Johansson.

At around 14:30 on Saturday, the police were contacted as divers had found clothing and possible skeletal remains in the lake Härsvatten. Police later said they are 99 per cent sure that the bones are the remains of an animal.

At around 15:30 a second discovery – a human body wrapped in material - was made, this time on land in the forest near the lake Övre Långevatten. It will take at least a few days to identify the body.

“But there are many indications that these are the remains of Marina Johansson. However, there are other missing people to consider as well,” said police spokesman Björ Blixter to Göteborgs-Posten.

He also said it is clear that the dead person had been murdered. The body had been hidden and covered.

The disappearance of Marina Johansson has been highly publicised. The police suspected that she had been murdered by her ex-boyfriend. Despite a body never being found, the man was tried for murder, but was acquitted by both the District Court and the Court of Appeal.
