Young man found dead in a pit in South Zealand
A young man was found dead submerged in water in a marlpit south of Herlufmagle in south Zealand on Tuesday afternoon.
According to the South Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police, his hands and legs were tied and his body was weighed down – most likely, so it would stay hidden under the water.
The police investigation suggests the corpse had been in the water for a while before it was discovered.
Investigated as homicide
The victim has not been identified yet.
The deputy police inspector, Soren Ravn-Nielsen, did not want to provide further details.
“At this stage of the investigation, I will not comment on any further details about the discovery of the body or how it was arranged,” Ravn-Nielsen told BT.
The case is being investigated as a homicide.
