UPDATED: Sweden’s largest Internet discussion forum has published intimidating comments involving Sigrid Giskegjerde Schjetne’s closest family and friends, reports say.



Several users of the reportedly some 680,000-member site, who do not disclose their real name, have written comments speculating about what may have happened or the chain of events.

Some of the people using the site are Norwegians, reports NRK.

“It’s so incredibly painful to read such things about one’s closest, almost indescribable,” Bjarne Koren, father to Sigrid’s 16-year-old friend she visited the night of her disappearance, told the broadcaster.

Sigrid Giskegjerde, 16, disappeared on the way home from her friend on the night of 05 August. 

Hundreds of volunteers mounted an intense search operation. Her body was found in a grove in Kolbotn outside Oslo almost one month later. She was buried in late September.

Police indicted two men, a 64-year-old and a 37-year-old, for murder and aiding and abetting murder. 

Traces of what were believed to be Sigrid’s blood were found in the caravan one of the indicted men formerly inhabited.

The first suspect was released at the beginning of this month but is still indicted, whilst the 37-year-old is still in custody.

Bjarne Koren, who asserts he stumbled across his name by accident whilst searching for other information, added the amount of harassment published was shocking, “where one by one was denounced as murderers and killers. It’s completely tragic.”

While some comments are too slanderous and awful to publish, according to NRK, the father alleges he has been called a criminal, is engaged in smuggling, or is “probably a pedophile, like my son.”

“Moreover [some have written] my daughter is insane, mad, and you name it. There are similar comments about Sigrid’s parents, friends of Sigrid’s family, and friends of mine who contributed to searching [for her],” claimed Mr Koren.
