Norwegian corpse discovery leads to Germany |
Teddy was the last witness
Oslo – It is one of Norway’s most mysterious criminal cases. And now a trail leads to Germany!
The case: On September 12, 1992, hunters discovered the skeleton of a man in Norway’s Hardangervidda Park. It is still unclear what happened to him in the difficult-to-access area and who it is. Because a teddy bear was lying next to him, the police called him “Teddybjørn-mannen” – in English: teddy bear man.
Now the TV show “Åsted Norge” (crime scene Norway), which is very popular in Norway, has reopened the case. Surprising: The investigators hope for clues from Germany.
Because the provisions of the dead man, who was about 20 to 27 years old, came from Germany. And: The man probably bought his poncho for backpackers (Wäfo brand) from “Globetrotter” in Hamburg or from “Schuster” in Munich.
Also striking: the teddy bear was already older and had been mended several times – apparently it was very important to the hiker. The man himself was very slim and was mistaken for a woman until a DNA test.
Puzzling: The backpack and the papers of the dead man had disappeared.
After the TV search, a viewer now reported. She claims to have seen a German talk show with Jürgen Fliege in 1998, where a woman spoke about the fact that her son had disappeared in Norway. But the show can’t be found in any archives, Talkmaster Fliege can’t remember
The search for the teddy bear man continues.
