Christer Pettersson
Birth: Apr. 17, 1947
Death: Sep. 29, 2004

Accused Assassin. Pettersson was a suspect in the assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme. On February 28, 1986, Olof Palme was shot and killed on a street in Stockholm, Sweden, as he left a movie theatre with his wife. Pettersson who had a history of substance abuse, was tried and convicted for the murder of Palme. The accused killer was convicted in 1988 and had only been identified as the killer by Plame's wife, Lisbet, but the conviction was later overturned and Pettersson was acquitted. The police who investigated the killing failed to find the murder weapon and later had to pay Pettersson a seven figure compensation award for defamation and for wrongful imprisonment. Pettersson used his money from the suit to sel his stories to newspapers. Pettersson died in September 2004 at the age of 57, after being in a coma for 2 weeks. (bio by: K)
