One person found dead in the lake, Police say body has ‘been there for a while’


A dead person was found in Järlasjön in Nacka on Sunday.

Passersby saw the body floating in shallow waters and alerted the police. Police crime scene technician was on the scene but by four o clock, the cause of death was still unknown. This was made worse by the fact the body had been lying in the water for a long time. 

– It is difficult when a person has been in the water for a while. It hasn’t happened today, I can say,…but I can’t say more. Everything depends on air temperature, water temperature, what condition the body was in when it got into the water and much more, says Eva Nilsson, press officer at the Stockholm Police.

The identity of the deceased is still unknown.
