The murder of Karina Holmer is a devastating one for reasons you’ll get to see as this true-life story unfolds.
Karina’s case reminds us of a particular episode in the crime drama, Criminal Minds, where the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) had to find a murderer with a similar M.O as Karina’s killer.
While the BAU team successfully found this killer, the same can’t be said of the officers who were saddled with solving Karina’s murder.
For many years, up until now, Karina’s murder remains unsolved. A lot of water has passed under the bridge, so many life events have happened. Her family had gradually learned to live with the loss.
But there is an excellent possibility that her killer remains out there walking the streets of Boston, alive and healthy – no one knows.
Who was Karina Holmer, and why was the life of a budding young lady snuffed out of her sooner than was time?
Keep reading to find out all about the disturbing gruesome murder of Karina Holmer, which was never solved.
10 It's A Cold Case
Twenty-five years ago, on June 21, 1996, Karina Holmer went clubbing with her friends and never returned.
A couple of days later, she was discovered in a trash bin behind a building at 1091 Boylston Street by a homeless man rummaging through the chest.
Investigations got into play, an autopsy was carried out, suspects were interrogated, but all these proved futile. Her killer remains unidentified to this day, and the police couldn’t find a crime scene.
9 Karina... From Sweden To Boston
Beautiful and young 20-year-old Swedish Karina won a lottery of $1500. In March of 1996, she moved to Boston, U.S, from her home in Stockholm, Sweden, to have a shot at a better life.
She got employed as an au pair for Frank Rapp and Susan Nitcher (who had two kids) in Dover’s suburb.
For four months in Dover, Karina enjoyed her life as an au pair and had a feel of the U.S, more so as she was allowed access to Frank’s Boston loft every other night.
