More details emerge about mysterious abduction of Norwegian billionaire’s wife
According to a report by local media outlet E24, the mysterious disappearance of the wife of Norwegian millionaire Tom Hagen is making headlines after several years.
As U.Today reports, Anne-Elizabeth Hagen suddenly went missing in October 2018.
In January 2019, Hagen informed Norwegian police that an alleged kidnapper had demanded a ransom of $10 million in Monero (XMR), a popular privacy-focused cryptocurrency.
However, the story took a shocking turn in April 2020. Hagen was arrested when it was revealed that he had allegedly faked the ransom story only to circumvent the investigation. The Norwegian millionaire was charged with murdering his own wife and attempting to hide the crime. it wasEven after his release from custody, Hagen is still a free man. However, he still faces imprisonment.
Norwegian investigators found that the 30-year-old man, reportedly known as Ole Henrik Golf, is actually not present. His identity was sold on the dark web.
CardPass, a now-defunct company that sells golf identities, is now at the center of an ongoing police investigation. Police are trying to reveal the biometric information of the person making the purchase.
Last year, it was revealed that the hijacker had communicated with investigators with the help of a bitcoin trading app. Hagen also reportedly used the once-popular privacy cryptocurrency Dash to pay someone to get rid of his wife.
The hijacker reportedly had to use a VPN to hide his whereabouts.
Even after years of police investigation, Falkevik’s body has not been found.
