    The Lelle Hildebrand mentioned in this article is/was a 36-year-old man, the tour leader of a Swedish hardrock band, who went missing on January 25, 1999 in Sölvesborg, Blekinge, during the band's performance at a club. He went outside with a man who had been the manager for the previous event to get the payment for it (about $ 3,000), and Lelle hasn't been seen since that. First it was believed he had gone missing with the money, but the money was soon found (if I remember correctly, in a bag frozen to the ice on a lake nearby), and the manager was arrested for having killed Lelle. The manager, a 22-year-old man, have since the missing of Lelle been arrested, and sentenced to 30 years, for a triple murder in September 1999. The man was tried for having murdered Lelle, and he denies to have done that, and as Lelle's body hasn't been found, and it can't be proved what happened, the trial ended with "crime can't be proved".
    The search for Lelle was intensified in 2018, when his mother and siblings posted a reward for information for finding his body, or getting someone sentenced for the murder.

    Even if Sölvesborg is a very small town (population less than 10,000) it's known to hard rock fans, as it's home to the three or four day event Sweden Rock Festival.

    One of the suspects is his son? Did I read that correctly?

    So sad. It was expected and I hope the family will have closure.

    What a tragic story. His own son as well. Why does money make some people evil?
    Rest in peace, Mikael Petersson. Vila i frid.

    The preliminary autopsy is now done, and the police have a preliminary case of death report, but it's not public yet. It will take a couple of more months until the investigation is finished, most likely not until March or April.

    The body was found on a small island, not far from land, and most likely there have been boaters visiting the island during the summer months, so it's a bit surprising that it wasn't found until early November. The red dot in where he was found, the blue one is close to his home.

    Mikael Petersson was killed by blunt force trauma, and the 22-year-old partner of MP's son have begun talking with the police, and given explanations of what happened.

    The body could have been found almost two months earlier, in September, as Missing People Sweden had been on the island searching, but they had only been able to search half the island before it got dark, and for some reason they were not asked by the police to continue searching the rest of the island later.

    Yesterday I was downtown, and walked past the closed and dark cafe, the name is still written above the entrance, and as far as I could see from the other side of the street, there was nothing that showed that it had connections with a crime.

    Wow, I'd never heard of that before. Just had a quick google and this guy Ricard Nilsson convicted of the triple murder and suspected murder of Lelle Hildebrand is up for parole this year :eek:

    I'm glad Mikael has been found. So sad that his son is involved.

    There have been some more information about the murder of MP. He was beaten and killed with a wrench, and dismembered in the apartment, then buried on the little island of Varö. The suitcases where the body parts were transported was then filled with rocks and thrown in the sea. At least one of the suitcases have been found.

    The 21-year-old man suspected of the murder have admitted to a crime, but denies murder (perhaps causing the death, or dismemberment), more information later on.

    The tools used in the murder were hidden in a storage area at the work place of the suspected killers, and they tried to put the boat used into storage, but the police arrested them before they were able to do so.

    Money was one of the reasons for the murder, but also the 22-year-old suspected killer's belief that his relative, Mikael Petersson, was working for the Russian mafia, but there are no proof at all for that belief in the investigation by the police. The 22-year-old also claimed that he had a deadly illness, and wrote a testament in favour of his 23-year-old partner about six weeks before the killing.
