This was scary sounding!
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish woman who photographed a swan in the river outside the royal palace in Stockholm made a grim discovery when the film was developed: a hand sticking out of the ice.

Newspaper Aftonbladet said on its Web Site that Marita Larsson was walking around Stockholm's Old Town in early March and took a photo of a swan on the river as a spring thaw melted the ice.

"It was only when I came home and developed the film that I saw there was something particular about the picture. When I had it blown up I saw there was a hand sticking out of the ice," she told the newspaper.

A spokesman for Stockholm police said the hand might be that of a man who committed suicide in late January and whose body has not yet been found.

Police last week also fished various body parts of a woman, including the head and hands, out of the river, and are still trying to identify her.

I suddenly became a unsure if I should look at the pics I took outside, yesterday. Who knows what might show up! :eek:
I think it's best if I just delete them right away.

...suicide, hand through the ice, fished up various body parts. What's up with that river?

I would also like to see here pictures. That river sounds like ones here in the Boston area. A place where many try to hide their cruel deeds. :(

Nice park they have there. Wasnt this the concept of a movie a while back? Someone takes a picture and unknowingly gets important info regarding a murder and has to run from the mob, or something...?

I tried to look it up on Aftonbladet's website (http://www.aftonbladet.se) to see if they show the picture, but there is no English version of the site (that I could see) and I don't speak Swedish. Any Swedish speaking person willing to go to the site and see if there is a link? I, too, would like to see that picture. Morbid curiousity...

Don't think this is what you are looking for but is kind of like "Enemy of the State" with Will Smith and Gene Hackman.

I don't think it's the film you're thinking of, but this scenario isn't dissimilar to Antonioni's Blowup.

stubeeef, definitely YUCK!!!

I would not want to see this picture. Too gross...

Remind me of bridge at Cornell University where a lot of engineering students commit suicide by jumping off it. Anyone from Cornel?

YUCK...

The title "Här sticker handen upp"...I don't speak Swedish but seeing that picture with that title doesn't require further explanation, does it? :eek:

Pic did nothing for me either, strange because I'm extremely sensitive to graphic images, and stuff in general. <shrugs>
