Police found “several” murdered people in the apartment on Tuesday morning, reports daily Ekstra Bladet.

A routine patrol was sent to the address in response to a report of domestic violence.

Deputy inspector and leader of the investigation Ove Bundgård Larsen told the newspaper that police were meet by a “terrible scene” on entering the apartment, with “lots of blood” and signs of a struggle.     

“When they arrived at the apartment they could see that there were several murdered people and of course called for reinforcements,” Larsen said to broadcaster DR.

One person, who has a connection to the address where the discovery was made, has been arrested and charged with murder.

“We are working with a theory that says this was a family murder,” Larsen told DR.

The inspector declined to go into further detail relating to the relation of the arrested person and the family, nor would police confirm the exact number of deaths.

“We are working on securing the apartment, which we will now examine for clues,” he said.

The woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with theft and information fraud. There are ten victims in the case.

The police suspect the woman of having stolen from citizens whose homes she has visited as part of her work as a domestic worker in various places in Copenhagen.

“She has worked as a domestic helper and has been in people’s homes as an employee,” Bjarke Dalsgaard, deputy police inspector at Copenhagen police, said.

According to the police, the woman has stolen jewellery and cash on ten occasions. In addition, she has stolen debit cards in four cases and withdrawn money using them. The money that has been withdrawn alone adds up to a value of 52,000 kroner.

Copenhagen police received the first report of theft in the case at the beginning of 2022.

According to the police, the 31-year-old domestic helper admitted to one instance of crime (the theft of around 400 kroner) but pleaded not guilty regarding the remaining 13.
