On August 5, 2002, shortly after 5 pm, a family on vacation found the burned body of a dead man next to the parking lot at Hogdals bygdegård north of Strömstad, Sweden. They had left the car next to the E6 to rest their dog when they made the horrific discovery. At first they did not realize that they had found a corpse of a dead man, because the body was so badly burned.

One theory is that the body was shipped from Norway. The site is only a few miles from the border, located alone and may have been chosen with care so that the body would not be found immediately. It should have burned a lot, we say that someone who passed must have seen something, says police officer Kent Karlsson. The police assume that the body was taken to the scene yesterday afternoon. One or more perpetrators have then started the fire next to the parking lot.

No disappearance has been reported that can be linked to the body. An elderly man was murdered last winter in Strömstad by two men, but the police do not believe that this body have anything to do with that murder.
