Expressen says it was Lundmark’s tattoos that helped identify the man.
In conversation with the police, the family was informed that a special tattoo below the knee, and around the ankle, had been found on the body. They both agreed with Michaels.
– It was difficult and shocking. Although we tried to prepare for it, somehow it became determined. It was awful. He was kind, caring, honest, troubled, and funny. He had a lot of wonderful sides, says Evelina Lundmark in the big report on her son.
