A DNA finding from a sperm stain on 16-year-old Malin’s shirt prompted the Supreme Court to accept her murder – 26 years later.
The man’s explanation for the sperm stain on Malin’s clothes was that he masturbated in the woods with friends.
Today, the 44-year-old suspect was heard in court and suddenly said he saw Malin’s body on one such occasion.
The trial began today against the man, now 44, previously convicted and then acquitted for the murder of Malin Lindström in Husum in 1996.
The focus during the trial will be the DNA evidence that led the Supreme Court to grant the annulment of the case. Evidence that most likely sentenced the suspected killer as early as the 1990s evaluates HD.

In the afternoon, it was time for the suspect to be questioned by prosecutors in the Sundsvall courtroom.
The 44-year-old said he was with three people, with whom he went out and drove the day Malin Lindström went missing. They had bought knives illegally.
The three people the suspect refused to name out of fear, he says. Neither age nor employment although he receives many questions from the prosecutor.
The prosecutor asked if anyone could claim that he was with the three people, but he doesn’t even want to answer this question because he could reveal their identities.
– I don’t want to get into that business, he repeats.
“Some things happen”
The prosecutor wondered what the suspect knew about Malin Lindström.
– The only thing in the paper was that someone was missing. Those I was dating didn’t think we should talk to the police because we made illegal purchases on the same day. Then some things happen in the following weeks.
The 44-year-old then told for the first time a version that had not previously been considered in court or in the court of appeal.
– I do not know what to say, a week or a week and a half later then we go out and take a car and we are out and go around a bit ‘everywhere. There we stop on a road and go out and say we are about to reach. This is the first time I’ve ever done anything physical with them. Everyone ejaculated and then we turned around a little more.

The prosecutor thoroughly worked out the details of all three occasions they masturbated as a group.
The 44-year-old talked about “second chance to run” right at the end of trial day because he thinks it’s “a little hard” to talk about it.
At that moment, he and the other two people he was dating were taken by what he calls the “leader figure” of the group.
Tell how they go around when they suddenly stop and are told to get out. Together they go out into the woods and pick up a black tarp which they load onto the car bed before setting off.
When they stop again, the 44-year-old describes how the leader figure lifts off the tarp.
– Then see what’s there. There is a dead person lying there.
The 44-year-old says the men masturbate together in the forest against the corpse. Then they carry the body and place it under a fir tree.
The man says he understood that it was Malin’s body.
The 44-year-old suspect has left several versions over the years and even claimed the memory loss for pivotal moments, but has always denied the murder.
The lawyer: credible story
44-year-old lawyer Ulf Holst says his client told a credible and detailed story.
– Finally, I think we now have a story that is true and works with technical evidence. He felt compelled to make up one stupid story after another.
These three unknown people, isn’t it hard to decide if they exist?
– That he is afraid to reveal them is quite obvious, most likely a killer.
What will happen tomorrow?
– Then we will hear how those people grossly abused him with tools, which left scars.
Your client pleads guilty to breaking the peace, what do you think?
– Yes and also protection from criminals. That’s why he didn’t want to go ahead and report and instead shut up.

The murder of Malin Lindström – this happened
It has been nearly 26 years since 16-year-old Malin boarded a bus in Husum and disappeared in broad daylight. Almost six months after her disappearance, she was found murdered, hidden under a fir tree.
Malin’s legs and arms were tied with duct tape and she had been raped and stabbed seven times in the back.
Traces of semen, a small, small stain, were found on his torn sweater, which with the technology of the time could not be analyzed. But when the 44-year-old, then 19-year-old, was arrested in 1997, he left behind a blood sample that was later forgotten.
When the blood sample was found 25 years later and a DNA comparison could be made, it was shown that it was most likely the same suspect that left the sperm stain on Malin.
