Murder suspect’s family to be remembered

Police in Oslo are investigating a suspected quadruple murder after a 41-year-old Iranian man was found dead last night at the bottom of a lake.



The man allegedly killed his 37-year-old wife and their 9 and 7-year-old children, as well as the couple’s 2-week-old baby, before committing suicide.

His Moroccan wife and the infant were found dead at their flat in Mortensrud in Oslo yesterday, Wednesday, after concerned relatives were unable to contact the family.

The couple’s nine-year-old deceased daughter was discovered in Gjersjøen lake in Oppegård municipality later the same day after police and rescue workers originally went searching for an allegedly senile 76-year-old man, missing from his home since about 10:00 on Tuesday morning. The man was found alive and well yesterday afternoon.

Early this morning, police divers recovered the bodies of the man and his other daughter from the bottom of the 13 metre-deep lake.

Police say they still do not know why the 41-year-old allegedly killed his family, but have indicted the deceased man for murder.

“We are currently investigating possible motives with relatives and family to see if there were any conflicts that could be connected to the murders,” Police Inspector Hanne Kristin Rohde tells Aftenposten.

The murder suspect was granted Norwegian citizenship in 1999 after coming to Norway from Iran in 1993.

Neighbours to the deceased family of five are to gather this evening in the housing complex in Mortensrud for a memorial service.

“The most important now is that we tell the children what has happened in a proper way so they understand,” Zahid Bhatti, board member of Solåsen resident’s association tells NRK.
