Norwegian police are now checking the British murderer Tony Alexander King against the description of the man who murdered Trude Espås in Geiranger in 1996. However, they doubt they found their man.

According to information provided TV 2 Nettavisen, the Brits name has not been connected to the investigation documents until now.

“It is not very likely that there is any connection with the Espås murder, but our man in Spain is checking the case,” said Asbjørn Hansen, police lieutenant at Kripos, Norway’s International Crime Unit, to TV 2 Nettavisen.

It was the Norwegian paper VG that contacted the police Monday when the similarity between the drawing made by VG drawer after the Espås’ murder and the British murder suspect suddenly became apparent. Espås was raped and murder in Geiranger, August 8, 1996. She was found 11 days later in a scree outside town.

38-year-old Tony Alexander King has admitted to killing two Spanish women, 17-year-old and a 19-year-old, at Costa del Sol in Spain, and the police have DNA proves in both cases. In addition the Brit is being checked in connection with eight unsolved murders in England and two in Spain. The 38-year-old moved to Spain in 1997 after he had served time in Britain for a number of brutal rapes.
