Greetings from a snowy Sweden!

I am working on a story on a true crime-story from 1920 in Sweden.

A body was found in a abandoned mine. His clothes were bought in USA.

A man (Oskar Rosengren) who had come back from several years in ”America” had disappeared some months earlier.

During several weeks, the police searched for a suspect who had been seen with Rosengren.

But soon it was discovered that the”victim” was alive. He had travelled to Canada.

The dead man was another Swede who had lived in USA and returned.

The killer was caught and convicted.

I am trying to get more info on Rosengren (the man who everyone thought was dead).

In a newspaper story from January 2nd, 1924, it says that he had taken his own life (drinking poison?) in Moose Jaw.

As the newspaper got the facts from a letter, the suicide probably took place a month or so earlier.

If anyone has any information about this death in late 1923 or shortly thereafter, please contact:
