Found on New Year’s DayOn Friday, January 1, the police were notified of the discovery of a baby boiler suit with a life jacket at the water’s edge south on Karmøy in Rogaland, not far from Skudeneshavn. The police’s main theory was that there had been a tragic accident and that the child had been stranded.
Ongoing dialogue with the French authoritiesThe police had an early hypothesis that the body was that of Artin, especially because pictures of the boy circulated with the same clothes as those found on the remains.
“We got some tips about the boy, and pictures of him strengthened the theory. Nevertheless, it was important for us not to make premature conclusions.
“The police have had an ongoing dialogue with the French authorities. We have always respected ongoing processes across national borders, but when it turned out that the boy’s relative in Norway had a relationship that was close enough, we chose to attempt to compare the person’s DNA with the boy’s,” Tjelle Waage noted.
