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.

“Yesterday, we were the victims of a computer hack. We resumed operations in some stores overnight,” 7-Eleven said. 

“We expect to open more during the day,” it added in its statement Tuesday. 

The sudden outage occurred on Monday, a first for the US convenience store chain in Denmark, where it operates 175 stores. 

It did not say who might have been behind the attack.

Five stores were so far open again, which were for now only receiving payments in cash or via a mobile phone application.  

Based in Irving, Texas, 7-Eleven has than 77,000 stores worldwide which it operates either directly or under licence.
