We continue movie week with more crimes that inspired films. First Jonatan, our native Nordic, takes us to Finland to tell us about the Lake Bodom murders in Espoo. This one has all the making of a horror story but is very real. Four teenagers go camping together and are attacked by a mystery man. Was it an angry local, a suspicious foreigner or the sole survivor who killed the others?
Ana then tells the story of the Frog Boys, one of the most terrifying true crime tales to ever come out of South Korea. On a Tuesday in early Spring, a group of five boys decide to go into the mountains in search of frogs and never return. After 10 years, many false accusations and the suggestion that they probably just ran away their bodies are found in an area searched many times before. Police still say there was no crime but gunshot wounds and blunt force trauma tell a different story.
