No Foul Play in Pettersson Death

Published onsdag 13 oktober 2004 kl 13.08

An autopsy has found that no foul play was involved in the death of Christer Pettersson, the man convicted but later acquitted in the murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme.

A police spokesperson said Wednesday that a preliminary autopsy report showed that Pettersson died from brain haemorrhaging and organ failure, nearly two weeks after he was admitted to hospital after falling in the midst of an epileptic seizure where he struck his head. The police spokesperson added that the findings were in line with Pettersson’s history of seizures.

Christer Pettersson died at Stockholm’s Karolinska Hospital on September 29th, and a full autopsy report is expected later this month.
