Case re-opened after Quick conviction overturned
Police in Dalarna County have re-opened the investigation into the murder of Israeli citizen Yenom Levi, after DNA evidence was found. Levi was found murdered in Rörshyttan in 1988. His was one of the murders for which Thomas Quick, now known as Sture Bergwall, was wrongfully convicted based on his confessios.
The Levi case is the only one of the cases that has not passed the statute of limitations. Quick was convicted of eight murders, three of which have been overturned. The remaining five are also under review and could be overturned.
Leif GW Persson, professor of Criminology and head of Sweden's Cold Case group, has investigated the murder of Yenon Levi. He told Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet that technical evidence could help identify the killer.
