Dead man found in Alna River identified by police
Police have identified the man found dead in the Alna River in Oslo on Tuesday.
“We know that the man who was found dead in the Alna River October 4 is an adult who has been missing for a while,” said police superintendent Grethe Lien Metlid, leader of the Violent Crimes department of the Oslo police to Aftenposten.no.
Police do not yet know how the man ended up in the Alna River. Currently they would like not to disclose the name of the deceased.
“The preliminary autopsy report gave us no answers as to how he died. We are still waiting on some technical analysis and other responses, before we cna possibly make a conclusion,” says Lien Metlid.
This means that the police still consider the death suspicious.
“Yes, it is a matter that we are still investigating.”
Police crime technicians did studies on the place, and dogs searched for clues along the heavily used hiking trails along the river in Svartdal Park, hoping to find clues of where the man might have been before the river picked him up.
There are indications that the deceased was in the water for a long time.
Police are still interested in any tips that may help in the investigation of the case.
