Motive may be honor killing
An 18-year-old woman was found dead in an apartment in Oslo Sunday. Her 42-year-old father has turned himself into the police and stated that he killed her.
«The man met up at Sentrum police station in person around midnight and said that he had killed the woman,» said Laila Bach at Oslo police district to TV 2 Nettavisen.
«We still do not know the motive because we have not yet questioned the man,» said Finn Abrahamsen, police superintendent, to TV 2 Nettavisen.
However, Abrahamsen does not hide that this may be an honor killing, and the police will keep this in mind when the man is questioned today.
He said the man does not have a criminal record in Norway. The man is of foreign descent, but has lived in Norway for several years and has Norwegian citizenship.
The man lives alone, however, his daughter arrived in Norway a short time ago, and the two of them living in his apartment.
The police in Oslo only became aware of the murder when the man turned himself in.
«We went up there and saw that his story checked out,» Abrahamsen said. «The man is now charged, but he has not gotten a lawyer yet. From an investigation perspective, we view this as an uncomplicated case.»
A post-mortem examination of the 18-year-old women will be conducted today. The police do not wish to say anything regarding presumed cause of death before the report has been made.
A 33-year-old woman from Iran, who lives in the same housing complex as the murder victim, said she is horrified by the murder.
«Im terrified,» the woman said to TV 2 Nettavisen. «I talked to the woman just two days ago. She was sweet and nice. She seemed depressed.»
