Syrian migrant goes on the run in Denmark after his wife and 2 daughters are found dead in his freezer

A Syrian migrant is on the run in Denmark after his wife and two daughters were found dead in his freezer, it has emerged.

The bodies of the 27-year-old mother and her seven and nine-year-old daughters were found at their apartment in the Danish city of Aabenraa.

Detectives in the southern city say the woman’s husband wasn’t in the apartment when they arrived and have launched a manhunt.

Police found the bodies after a concerned relative said they had not heard from the family for days.

Investigators said today that the victims had been killed but did not give any further details.

The Syrian family arrived in Denmark in 2015 and were granted refugee status.

A police spokesman said: ‘Police went into the apartment and found the three bodies in a freezer.

‘The victim’s husband and the father of the two children was not in the apartment, and we are actively searching for him,’ the statement added.

The Syrian family arrived in Denmark in 2015 and were granted refugee status.

The Scandinavian nation welcomed 21,000 migrants in 2015. The influx has significantly slowed since Denmark re-established border controls in early 2016.
