Woman Supposedly Murdered By Husband Actually Killed By Elk?

November 29, 2009

Sweden (ChattahBox) – A Swedish man who was suspected of killing his wife has been cleared after police say they believe she was actually killed by an elk.

It is a bizarre story of murder.

Police arrested Ingemar Westlund after he found the body of his wife, Agneta, near a lake, after she went walking their dog through the woods.

She had been gone for a great deal of time, and he had gone searching for her after becoming concerned for her safety.

Westlund called the police, and was immediately arrested for her murder.

He was held for 10 days, but was released as the investigation continued. It ended five months ago, but his life was turned upside-down, and there was still no word on who had killed his wife.

“My family and I have been dragged through a nightmare,” Westlund told a local paper.

Now, police say they have found elk saliva on the body, and believe she was killed by a creature, and not a person.

The details aren’t clear, but police say they will hold an press conference this week to explain what happened.
