Swedish diver finds dismembered body

SALTO, Sweden, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- A diver in southern Sweden discovered a well-sealed package containing a dismembered body, police said.

The container was found 46 feet below the water surface near the west coast town of Salto, Sweden, near the Norwegian border, the Swedish news agency TT reported Monday.


"It's the kind of thing you think you could only see on TV, but it happens every now and then that someone dumps a body in this way," said Bjor Blixter of the Gothenburg police.

Police said they launched an investigation and have not identified the body, but conceded the packaging was "well-made."

Blixter added, "It was done in a manner that shows the body was not meant to be found."
