Jan Helge Andersen is charged with the murder of Lena Sløgedal Paulsen (10) in Baneheia in 2000. On Monday, the district court in Sandnes heard from the experts who have analyzed DNA samples from the victims in the case and from the crime scene.

Senior engineer Gro Bjørnstad at Oslo University Hospital (OUS), section for forensic genetics, stated according to Fædrelandsvennen that they made a total of ten new discoveries during the new investigation: Two discoveries on Stine Sofie Sørstrønen (8), six discoveries on Sløgedal Paulsen and two discoveries in the material secured at the crime scene.

Several of the samples match the profile of Jan Helge Andersen, while none of them match the profile of Viggo Kristiansen, who was originally convicted of the murder of Sløgedal Paulsen.

Analyzes show that three findings taken from Sløgedal Paulsen’s tongue, panties and rectum coincide with Jan Helge Andersen’s Y-profile. The defenders asked questions about how reliable the answers the tests give. The experts say there is little DNA available in the samples, but they can be interpreted.

There are three days this court week in the Baneheia case, with Monday set by the DNA experts. On Tuesday, there will be a review of the telephone data, which was central to the acquittal of Kristiansen. On Wednesday, Sløgedal Paulsen’s parents are scheduled to testify, in addition to two experts, responsible for the forensic psychiatric examination of Andersen.
