On 4th of June 1960 a group of four teenagers consisting of the 15 year old girls Maili Irmeli Bjrklund (on the left) and Anja Tuulikki Mki plus two 18 year old boys Seppo Antero Boisman and Nils Wilhelm Gustafsson went to camp to a beautiful Finnish lake located in the heart of Espoo. Their trip to Bodominjrvi (Finnish for lake Bodom) is still known by each and every Finn.
It was a nice and sunny day when the youngsters arrived at the camping place of their choice, the cape of Hstbergen, which the boys had checked out earlier for them with their motorbikes. At this time the region was very peaceful and almost unpopulated. The girls had had some little arguments with their parents about spending the night at the lake, since there had been an unfortunate murder case on the other side of the Finland some time ago (the murderer had been already captured, though).
Soon the sun ceased to shine and the night fell upon them, as the kids fell asleep for the very last time. Between 03.00 and 06.00 the children of Bodom took their last breath. Someone or something brutally attacked the innocent campers by jumping on their tent and stabbing them through it with eyes full of hate. He hit the victims mostly in the head, neck and upper body. One of the girls was hit 11 times in the neck. Nils, however, managed to crawl out of the tent but he was hit by a stone.
The murderer escaped with various items of the kids: wallets, swimming suits, id papers and such, but nothing that would be worth the trouble the risk.
The next day Erkki Johansson, a father of two children, came to swim on a nearby beach with his two boys. By accident he spotted the collapsed tent and the bloody Nils next to it. He freaked out and called the police. As the police and doctors came over, Maili, Anja and Seppo were declared dead, but Nils was still moving his arms despite his injuries from the murder weapon and the stone. He had 10 wounds and his upper and lower jaw were broken.
He was the only one to survive this brutal and incomprehensible act of violence. Finns as a whole nation were horrified about the triple murder and the story made it to the headlines of newspapers all over the world. The biggest manhunt of the Finnish crime history had begun.
Graves of the children lie in Vantaa to remind about the murders. Also, a small wooden cross was put up on the cape of Hstbergen as a monument for the innocent victims.
The motive of the murderer was a complete mystery, and there were no clues at all except for a 80cm x 40cm pillowcase, with which the murder weapon had probably been carried. The bruised Nils had been carried out to a hospital and the police was anxiously waiting for him to wake up since he might have had some information about the murderer, but it was a huge disappointment when the first thing Nils said when he woke up was : "How did I end up into a car accident?" cheap Jordan 11 Concord

Nils couldn't remember anything about the murdered but a month later he was hypnotized. He could give some details of the murderer and he also said that the eyes of the murderer had glowed (red light in his eyes?). Also some other eye witnesses like Olavi Virtanen who had seen someone walking away from the lake at 06.00 were hypnotized in order to get more details. On the left you can see pictures that were drawn according to the given details.
Unfortunately the pics weren't much of help. The police got hundreds of tips but they didn't help them get any further. They were also under a lot of pressure since the public wasn't happy with them since they didn't get any results. jordan 11
Some people also tried to mix up the investigations: someone cut himself and left the knife on a bush nearby the camping place. The methods in the sixties were also worse than today, so it's no use to blame the police, and besides who would be able to get on the reapers trail? Jordan 11 Concord
One of the main suspects was the kiosk keeper who had sold the kids candy earlier that evening, but there were no real evidence against him. One night he said these words drunk in a bar : "I DID IT!". His friends didn't know what he meant, but the next day he drowned himself to the lake. There are some rumours which say he had forbad tenting on his area at the lake but the youngsters didn't care about that and camped there despite his threats. Later the police came to the conclusion that it could've not been him.
There were a lot of eye witnesses who saw a bit of something that might have been the murderer. Some fishermen and a biker had seen a man from behind, but nothing more. Also the biker and the fishermen were suspected. Even Nils was suspected but he had so many wounds that he just could've not been able to stab himself continuously for so long.
In 2003 the mystery was again visible in the Finnish media, since one of the main suspects the German Hans Assman had passed away providing the courage for a famous Finnish professor, Jorma Palo, to release a book named "Bodomin arvoitus" (=the mystery of Bodom).
In the June of 1960 Palo was working as an assistant doctor in a hospital nearby the lake. 12 32 hours after the murder Assman had come to the hospital with bloody clothes on him in a very confused state of mind. The doctors soon found out that it wasn't his own blood. Assman couldn't speak Finnish so they couldn't communicate.
Palo and the other doctors tried to get the police to get to the hospital but they didn't listen to them since they were getting similar tips all the time. Soon Assman left the hospital and the police didn't even want to interview Palo.
Palo is still convinced that Assman was the murderer, but he was interviewed by the police in March 2003 and the police came to the conclusion that Assman had a very good alibi. order Jordan 11 Concord
Bodomin Arvoitus isn't the only book that has been released about the murders and there has also been a document called "Ei vanhene koskaan". Many years ago there were also rumours about a movie. According to the latest information Nils Gustafsson, the one who survived the lake bodom works as a bus driver in the city of Espoo. He is over sixty years old but still not retired.
In the course of fourty years the police didn't manage to catch the murderer. There were numerous theories, over 70 MAIN suspects, hundreds of minor suspects, over 3700 interviewed people and even a theory of two murderers. The possibility of a ritual or serial murder was closed aswell.
