ULVILA MURDER VICTIM, and a few questions that will never be answered?
Ulvila murder victim was 51-year-old Jukka Lahti who was a social psychologist and farther of four children. Jukka Lahti worked for Luvata Ltd in Pori, where he was responsible for supporting workers who were facing the sack. Luvata Ltd is a company that produces copper and other metal parts. Jukka Lahti had received death threats for several months, and the first investigating officer in the case, Juha Joutsenlahti, thought that the murder was about revenge.
The victim’s wife, Anneli Auer, claimed that a masked outside assailant stabbed her husband several times. She had also received a stab wound through her breast while trying to fight off the assailant. She then ran off to the telephone in their kitchen to make an emergency call. Her eldest daughter, then nine, woke up and was left to attend the phone, while mum was asked to check whether the intruder was still in the house.
If the murder was about revenge, what was it about? Had someone lost their job, and then possibly their home, and their wife? Did someone hold Jukka Lahti responsible for their own personal misfortunes?
Had Jukka Lahti offended someone in the sleepy Ulvila suburb? Jukka Lahti was known to be a straight talking man. He was also known to be sceptical about the existence of God. Had he offended someone’s religious sentiments? Ulvila is near Pori in Satakunta province West of Finland, which has a long history with religious movements like Laestadianism and Pentecostalism.
Did Jukka Lahti know something he had to be silenced for? Had someone told him sensitive information? Was the murder done by a hit man? Why didn’t the murderer say anything, was he perhaps a foreigner, or didn’t he want to be identified from his voice?
It turned out that Jukka Lahti had called several times Porvoo police department, hundreds of kilometres from Pori, only weeks before his death. Someone in that police department had looked into Jukka’s information on their database. No one in the Porvoo police seems to know why Jukka Lahti had contacted them, and who had accessed his data and why? Who was that information passed on to? What were these phone calls all about?
Finally, who killed Jukka Lahti and why? It was not his wife Anneli Auer, that I am sure of. She was acquitted by the Appeals Court in July 2011, and the so called new evidence the prosecutors have, is just ridiculous.
