MURDER: Swedish man killed

MURDER
Police in Kandal province have launched a murder investigation after the body of a Swedish national was found Saturday in Kandal Stung district. Officials have identified the man as Janola Jordansson, 45. Police are saying little about how he died, except that his body showed obvious signs of trauma to the head when it was discovered by local residents. Provincial police Deputy Chief Roeun Nara said the man was probably killed at a different location before his body was deposited on the side of a road in Kandal Stung’s Preak Kampoeus commune. “The man was killed somewhere else before his body was dropped off,” Roeun Nara said. Kol Sophat, police chief in Chamkarmon district’s Boeung Keng Kang I commune in Phnom Penh, confirmed that Jordansson had been staying at a local hotel before he was killed. “We don’t know the exact reasons for [Jordansson’s] killing,” Roeun Nara said. “We have some clues to identify perpetrators in this case, but we cannot elaborate more.” The victim’s family has been notified by officials at the Swedish embassy, Roeun Nara said.
