Sweden woman’s ‘murder’ committed by elk not husband

I don’t get how forensics works—I mean couldn’t the dude have murdered her, and THEN a moose come along and dribbled his saliva about her corpse?
Who’s to say the timeline, other than the maggots etc….
I saw a show once where they automatically suspected a mechanic who had left his coffee cup in the murder car, but……what if he repaired the car the week before slaughter?
and what if you accidentally bump into someone in a mosh pit, they later die, but have your dna on them—-circumstantial shit shouldn’t mean anything, yet so many people go free or are incarcerated for this kinda shit.
i think they should just lock up the old fart, just in case
—make him take care of many much moosen (cr brian regan), while he’s at it why not

Ingemar Westlund says he was “dragged through a nightmare”

A Swedish man who was arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife has been cleared, after police decided she was probably killed by an elk.

Ingemar Westlund, aged 68, found the dead body of his wife Agneta, 63, by a lake close to the village of Loftahammer in September 2008.

He was immediately arrested and held in police custody for 10 days.

Now the case has been dropped after forensic analysis found elk hair and saliva on his wife’s clothes.

Mr Westlund told Expressen newspaper: “My family and I have been dragged through a nightmare.”

His wife had last been seen taking the family dog out for a walk in the forest. When she failed to return her husband went out to look for her.

Although the murder investigation was dropped five months ago, details have only just emerged and the police plan to hold a news conference next week to explain what happened.

The European elk, or moose, is usually considered to be shy and will normally run away from humans. But Swedish Radio International says the animals can become aggressive after eating fermented fallen apples in gardens.

    WHAT? “pick up”? SO?!??? no you measure how long a body has been decaying by lifecycles of maggots and other interesting eaters of detritus, and the stages they glom on for, but.
    BUT my question here be, HOW DO THEY KNOW when the moose drool came on the corpse?
    can’t i just capture a moose, and collect it’s drool and kill someone somehow and throw a bucket of moose drool on em, voila fini clean getaway? or what
    so WHAT if there was moose salivia on her, what if the quadraped arrived AFTER–what does the drool presence proof, fuck?
