Dane murdered in Lithuania

A 57-year-old Danish man was beaten to death with a crowbar by a 17-year-old boy he had hired to help him with the renovation of a house he had purchased in Lithuania. Relatives of the murdered man, Erland Elgaard Nielsen, say they suspect that his death was the result of an argument over money. After killing Nielsen, the 17-year-old stole, and subsequently wrecked, his car. The boy originally told police that he was watching over Nielsen’s house and vehicle because he had taken a trip back to Denmark. He has since admitted to the killing. Police speculate that the crime happened sometime in early July. – TV 2 News
