As reported by TheLocal.se news outlet on September 13, the Hässleholm psychiatric patient went on the run on Tuesday afternoon last week. He chose the right moment during his 15-minute daily free walk, which hospital personnel granted him despite the prosecutor's objection.
The man was convicted and placed in a psychiatric facility after an examination showed he suffered from a mental disorder. Police discovered on his computer a list of 56 other people, whom he had selected as victims in the future.
In court, he claimed that he was on a witch hunt with the support of the Swedish Security Service. "I am God's judge. I point the finger and say who's guilty," he said.
In 2015, the "witch hunter" was sentenced to four months in jail for an attack on his ex-wife and their son. He blamed the woman for sending diabetes and miscarriages to relatives through mind control.
