Weak technical evidence in Mangs trial

The technical evidence is relatively weak when it comes to the third murder in the prosecution's case against the suspected Malmö serial shooter Peter Mangs, Swedish Radio News reports.

A bullet was found in a door where the 23-year-old victim was shot in the head. It was shot from the same type of weapon that was found in the suspects flat.

However, Swedish Radio News reports that the bullet that was found only bears vague similarities to bullets of Mangs' weapons. No fingerprints of dna connects him to the scene and he himself denies ever having been there.

But the prosecution argues that Mangs can be tied to the murder through the anonymous tip that the prosecutor claims he gave to the police, mentioning several details of the murder.

Mangs is on trial for three murders and twelve murder attempts in Malmö.
