In Sweden the murder of 17 year-old Wilma Andersson is now going to trial, as Ahmed Tishko, a 23 year-old Iraqi Kurd, is prosecuted for murder and desecration of grave, which usually means inappropriate handling of a corpse.
Wilma disappeared in the town of Uddevalla November a day after telling her friends that she is going to end the abusive relationship she had with Tishko. A search was launched and Tishko denied any knowledge of Wilma’s whereabouts. A volunteer organization searched the grounds in Uddevalla and found Wilma’s shoes and glasses with signs that somebody had tried to burn them. The exact location of where the fire was, wasn’t found.
When the police started official search for her, a neighbor of Tishko called in and said that on the previous Thursday the neighbor had heard loud fighting that ended abruptly from Tishko’s appartment. The police searched the apartment and found blood trails. A police corpse dog marked a closet, and in that closet was a suitcase. In it was Wilma’s head, wrapped in aluminium foil, and personal belongings, such as underwear.
Wilma’s friends and family tell of a abusive relationship between Wilma and her boyfriend. Tishko had forced Wilma to drop out of school so that she could be a housewife, and she wasn’t allowed to meet her friends. Tishko wanted them to marry in accordance with muslim tradition, and for Wilma to convert and dress like muslim women. He had called Wilma his whore and slut, and he had an interest in fetish sex and strangled Wilma with a towel during sex. He also had tried to force Wilma to include her friends in group sex, and Wilma had asked her sister whether this was normal. According to the sister, this was Wilma’s first relationship and she didn’t have the emotional maturity to hold her own in such a situation. She had turned scared and introverted when the relationship went on.
Tishko is now in prison waiting for a trial, and even though he went silent when interrogated, he had opened up about what happened to his prison guards, even though the guards informed him that they’re required to disclose to the investigators what he says to them. He had commented the case by saying the bitch got what she deserved.
Wilma’s body is yet to be found, and the investigators assume her corpse was burned. Both parents of Tishko have also been arrested for interrogation about this. The details made public about the murder case are still scarce, but since Tishko is prosecuted for homicide and not sex offense, the court process will most likely be public and more information will become public with the trial.
