GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – SEPTEMBER 26, 2010 On Sunday, September 26, 2010, 27-year-old Elin Krantz (full name Elin Theresa Krantz) was returning home from the Valand nightclub to the Hisingen district of Gothenburg around 4 a.m. on the morning tram. A few stops before she got off, 23-year-old Ethiopian immigrant Ephrem Tadele Yohannes boarded the tram. The cameras in the tram caught that he tried to establish contact with Elin. But she ignored him. Then when she got off at the stop, Ephrem went after her and started chasing her.
But no camera caught what happened after that. Ephrem brutally attacked Elin and dragged her to the forest park, where he raped and murdered her. Elin was kicked and beaten with such force that her brain suffered non-life-threatening damage. According to the prosecutor, she was severely strangled during the rape. Subsequently, Ephrem covered her naked body with a pile of stones. Her body was discovered the next morning.
The camera footage made it clear which direction the investigation should go, and Ephrem was arrested almost immediately. At first he claimed that he was just passing by when he heard Elin screaming and calling for help in the park. He claimed that he saw her being raped by two men and that he was afraid for his health, so he did not intervene. After 72 hours of his arrest, when the police clearly demonstrated his DNA on her body, he broke his silence and confessed.
In March 2011, he was sentenced to 16 years in prison for murder. After his release from prison, he should be deported back to Ethiopia, from where he emigrated to Sweden. But his first migrant journey from Ethiopia led to the state of Virginia in the USA. There he committed several petty crimes and was sentenced to 13 months in prison. Then he married a woman there, also originally from Ethiopia, whom he married and together they moved to Sweden. It was later revealed that he was celebrating his daughter’s birthday the night he killed Elin.
The paradox of the whole situation is that Elin was an activist and supported migration from third world countries to Sweden. According to some sources, she was a member of the Facebook group “We like diversity” and described herself as a multiculturalist. She was also an actress in a clip supporting migration. The clip was even sponsored by the Swedish government. In the clip it was sung “let the black one between your legs, let the yellow one between your legs…”. The Swedish national anthem played in the background and Elin simulated sex with a black man. We were only able to get a screenshot of this clip.

Currently, Sweden regrets its welcoming policy for migrants, as their crime rate has increased significantly, including rape and murder. Meanwhile, Sweden used to be one of the safest countries in the world.
