Police in southern Zealand said on Wednesday that the body of a young man was found lying in a shallow waterhole with his hands and feet bound.
South Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police said they received a tip-off about the body on Tuesday evening and an initial investigation concluded that it “had apparently been in the water for some time”.
 
“The case is being investigated as a murder. We can not give further information on the circumstances or the means of death at this point,” a police press release read.  
 
Although police were sparse with details, the tabloid BT reported that not only were the young man’s hands and feet bound, there were also heavy weights attached to the body in an apparent effort to keep it under the shallow water. Police did not confirm that detail.
 
The young man’s body was found just south of the town of Herlufmagle. 
 
As of Wednesday afternoon, police had not been able to identify the young man.
