Boy Aged 10 Admits Strangling Four-Year-Old

Post by Guest on Thu Dec 15, 2011 5:23 pm


More than 35 officers were involved in the lengthy police investigation

A ten-year-old boy in Sweden has confessed to killing a boy of four by strangling him with a skipping rope after an argument.

Officers said the youngster had confessed after a 59-day investigation into the death of the youngster, named Texas, in the southern village of Ljungby.
The four-year-old disappeared on October 16 from the courtyard outside the flats where he lived.

According to Swedish news reports, he had been in a fight with several other children who had chased him out of a play area. His body was found a few hours later in a nearby wooded area.

More than 35 officers joined the investigation into the death and at least 65 children, aged between five and 15, were questioned. "The difficulty with this investigation has been that the evidence was found with children and that was a very difficult situation to handle," said lead investigator Yvonne Rudinsson.


Floral tributes were left at the scene of the killing

The 10-year-old was reportedly identified as a suspect early in the investigation and then later confessed.

Robert Loeffel, head of information at the Kronoberg county police, said: "The boy has told us what he did and how he did it and there is a confession in that. As far as I am concerned, the crime is solved." Kronoberg police chief Anders Kjaersgaard said: "My hope is that, now that the crime has been resolved, it will help everyone who is in one way or another involved in this very tragic event to move forward in their painful grief."

Children under the age of 15 cannot be punished under Swedish law, so the case of the 10-year-old will be handled by social services.

A ten-year-old boy has confessed to killing a four-year-old boy in a Swedish village earlier this year, police said last night.

In a case that has shocked the nation, the boy strangled his young victim - only identified as Texas - with a skipping rope outside the apartment building where he lived in the southern village of Ljungby.

He declined to comment on the motive for the October 16 killing, according to police.


Tributes left at the spot where a four-year-old boy was found strangled in Ljungby, Sweden, in October. A ten-year-old boy has confessed to the killing, police said

Detective Robert Loeffel, of Kronoberg police, said: 'The boy has told us what he did and how he did it and there is a confession in that.'

Local media reports say the four-year-old was killed after running off from a playground where he had been involved in a dispute with other children.

He was found dead in a shrub near a residential area a few hours later.

Yvonne Rudinsson, the detective in charge of the investigation, said: 'The difficulty with this investigation has been that the evidence was found with children, and that was a very difficult situation to handle.

'As far as I am concerned, the crime is solved.'

More than 35 police officers have been involved in the investigation and at least 65 children, aged between five and 15, have been questioned.


Echoes: The murder recalls the case of James Bulger, who was abducted from a Merseyside shopping centre and then murdered by two boys in 1993

Children under the age of 15 cannot be punished under Swedish law and the matter will now be handled by social services.

Child psychologist Margit Ekenberg told Sweden's Aftonbladet newspaper: 'Children can be cruel to each other, but not evil.

'Children who commit acts like this have probably not received the care and assistance they needed from adults in setting limits to their actions.'

The case has echoes of the 1993 murder of toddler James Bulger in Merseyside. Jon Venables and Robert Thompson were both ten when they snatched the two-year-old from a Merseyside shopping centre and murdered him.

It's OK, he's clearly had a poor upbringing, will get 7 or 8 years "rehabilitation" a new identity and then will come out and be a pillar of the Community! Rolling Eyes

Thats not the way they work. He will never go to prison, the community will work with the parents, and they have never had a case of a child who commits a terrible crime as a child reoffending in adulthood, so they must be doing something right.
