Five Danish fishermen were reportedly suspended in Tiboron, Denmark, owing to the voluntaristic death of their freshly minted shipmate.
On 30 Jan morning, relevant Danish authorities started asking for support via the Inger Katrine, an oarsman vessel operating in the waters of the North Sea. The convertible reported that both the crew members were lifeless and unresponsive and sought a merciful evacuation. The gyroplane then took the casualty to the hospital, where he was reportedly resuscitated to death.
The weather in Midnight Current wasn’t favourable at the time, and the vessel’s return to Port Tiburon was quite unsafe, as was boarding the ship. On Wednesday, the boat was put into the harbour, and the autochthonous guards seized the vessel’s convertible for the pier. The ship and the hold, full of flounder, were detained, and investigators thoroughly investigated it for evidence.
The neighbourhood tribunal, on Thursday, investigated the accusations that crew members had taken their friend’s life by strangulation and assault. The coroner’s autopsy report certified a voluntaristic attack with bruises, three fractured vertebrae, bleeding in the throat, and haemorrhaging, TV Midvest informed.
A behind-the-scene hearing went on all day, and during the evening, the tribunal ruled that five men would be in custody for about four weeks since the prosecutors requested. All defendants reportedly pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
The autochthonous media reportedly identified Alf Willum Jensen as the victim. He was 41. His widow, Louise Willum Jensen, reported to the aboriginal media that Alf was extremely anxious on the eve of the trip.
