I just read about this cold case in a Swedish Newspaper and Googled the case since I've never heard about it before. I got a few hits. Does anyone remember this case that took place in Boston 1996. The upper torso of a woman was found in a dumpster. She was identified as a 20 year old Swedish Nanny, Karina Holmer.
Here is a couple of more links:

Do any of you remember this case?

Absolutely! It's not often a Swedish nanny is found cut in half in a dumpster.

I believe a chief suspect took his own life not long after this happened.

I remember it. I also remember it being a cold case and it probably still is.

Yup. That was a nasty find. Still no one has a clue. Pretty creepy.
