(Updated Fri May 13 16:07:43 CEST 2016)
Linköping University student Victor Karlsson Sehlin, missing since last Tuesday, has been found dead.
“It’s extremely sad, and my thoughts are with his family, as well as his friends and fellow students,” says Helen Dannetun, vice-chancellor, Linköping University.
Victor Karlsson Sehlin was found dead on Friday morning in a pond on a golf course near the university.
“Naturally, this affects all of us, and we are putting all our energy into continuing to support our students,” she continues.
Earlier today the student councils at LiU had an extra meeting.
“We are all very sad, after receiving the news. Now we’re trying to support one another. If anyone needs further support, they can contact the Student Health Care Center,” says Sebastian Brandtberg, chair of the Union of Technology and Science Students at Linköping University.
Student Health Care Center has further increased its preparedness, and is present in the Zenith Building at Campus Valla and in the Kåkenhus Building at Campus Norrköping. They will also be stationed at Campus Valla, mainly outside the C Building and the Kårallen Building. This weekend, the Student Health Care Center will be open from 12 to 16. The Student Health Care Center will also be in touch with the students who are most affected.
The University Chaplaincy will also be open, to provide support and counselling.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Many students have expressed a wish to contribute, and consequently the University Management has suggested Christer Carlsson’s Memorial Fund, a fund for the families of students who have died.
Two condolence books have been placed out in the Kårallen Building and at IDA outside Visionen in the B Building.
Victor Karlsson Sehlin was in the third-year of the MSc in Computer Science and Engineering.
