There is a very sad ending to the story of a 15-year-old young hockey player who went missing over a week ago. Police in Sweden are now treating the junior player's disappearance as a homicide, and arrests have been made.

Over the weekend, the Frolunda Hockey Club issued a statement that the team was in mourning after police found the body of a 15-year-old they are only calling "Henrik," who had gone missing last Monday. Henrik played for Frolunda's youth team.
"The news on Sunday evening has shaken the association considerably, not least considering how important ice hockey was for Henrik.

In this difficult moment of grief and loss, Frölunda HC has focused on supporting Henrik's family and teammates. The association has taken professional help to ensure that everyone gets the help and support they need." - Frolunda HC

Police made the announcement that three people, all minors, had been arrested in connection with the death. Two were let go without any charges, while a 16-year-old is being held on suspicion of murder.
"The 16-year-old has admitted that he met Henrik the same night he disappeared, but denies having exposed him to crime. The boys were familiar with each other from before, and the police are trying to find a motive for the murder." - Prosecutor Andreas Ekengren.

Police say everyone arrested knew Henrik before he went missing. Our thoughts are with Henrik's family, friends, and teammates at this difficult time.
