The main theory of the police is that they face a murder and a suicide.
The police have charged the person who worked on the commercial building.
This person is accused of having killed the person who was reported missing from Gjøvik the night before the fire.
– The charge was necessary to take out in order to carry out the necessary investigations. This is done even if the suspected perpetrator is dead, the police write in a press release.
The death fire in Moelv
Two men from Gjøvik were found dead in the fire ruins after a fire in a commercial building in Moelv. The fire started on Wednesday morning 30.10.2020. Police suspect that the fire was started and that something criminal has happened.
Did not die in the fire
The preliminary autopsy report of the missing person from Gjøvik, shows that the person did not die as a result of the fire.
The person must have had injuries that are not compatible with burns.
Based on findings in the investigation, the police believe that the murder took place elsewhere than in the commercial building. They do not want to comment on where this place is at the moment.
– There are still several unanswered questions in the case, and the investigation will continue. Some of the investigation will try to find answers to how the fire in the commercial building started.
The police suspect that there are several hearths.
Know each other
Both of the two victims lived in Gjøvik and knew each other.
The police believe the motive may have something to do with a conflict between the two people.
