– We have identified the deceased and relatives have been notified. There is a woman born in 1981 who lives in Trondheim. "There is no strong connection to this apartment," said Anders Sunde-Eidem, head of the Joint Investigation Unit in the Trøndelag police district during a press conference on Sunday evening.
Two men were arrested in the apartment. A third man was arrested later that day. One of the accused is about 30 years old. The other two are in their forties. Everyone is accused of injuries leading to death. They are known to the police in advance and should belong to a busy intoxicating environment.
There must be an autopsy
"There has been serious visible injury to the deceased, but we can't share anything else for investigative purposes," says Sunde-Eidem.
The cause of death is not yet known. The woman will be autopsy tomorrow.
"We can't say what injuries the woman was exposed to, nor can we tell what weapons or tools were used," she told Sunde-Eidem at a press conference.
He was a relative of one of the accused who informed the police. This relative was not in Trondheim when the incident happened. Several armed patrols moved out.
– The police received a message from the person concerned, who was notified of the victim today at 11.28, said Sunde-Eidem.
According to police lawyer Elin Nessimo, there could be more arrests in the case.
– We're going out wide. At the moment, we do not exclude the possibility, said a police lawyer.
I hope for today's audition
Forensic technicians have been working on site for hours and several witnesses will be questioned. Efforts are also being made to secure digital traces and map the deceased's movements.
According to police lawyer Nessimo, there is hope to hear the accused tonight.
"We hope to have an interview tonight or at least as soon as possible." Then they decide about their status and further fate.
Police say it is too early to speculate on the motive for action, and they cannot say what kind of relationship the deceased had with the three people who are currently being charged.
