"the Police intend to take help of an expert in genealogy to identify a man who was found murdered in Ekeby outside Helsingborg in 2003. The man's dna profile will only be sent to a släktforskningsregister in the united states and from any match against someone, where should släktforskningsexperten seek further, reports SVT News Sweden."
"this is The first time it is used in Sweden," says Bo Lundqvist, head of the police group for the cold cases in the South region, to the tv station."
"The unidentified man had been in a wood in Ekeby for a long time when he was found. Police suspect that he comes from eastern Europe, partly because of how his tandlagningar looks and partly because of the jewelry of Croatian origin he had on. The idea is that through the släktforskningsregister be able to find some distant relative and then let släktforskningsexperten search further."
