Anne-Elisabeth Hagen Disappearance
She disappeared in October 2018 and the family said a ransom had been demanded her release, but on Tuesday Norwegian police arrested Hagen on suspicion of killing her, according to public broadcaster NRK.

NRK reported at the time that multiple messages were found inside the Hagens’ home and that a ransom had been demanded in the cryptocurrency Monero.
Anne-Elisabeth Hagen Suspect
Tom Hagen has been arrested on suspicion of killing his wife. Hagen’s lawyer denies the property and energy mogul was involved, and he has not yet been charged with any crimes.
The case was first reported in January 2019, attracting widespread attention in a nation where crime rates are low.
Police say they now believe Anne-Elisabeth was killed and not abducted, and have enough evidence to “suspect” Tom of her killing.
“It is important to emphasize that although we have charged Tom Hagen, the case is still being investigated and there are several unanswered questions,” Øst Police District said in a statement.
“It will be particularly important to clarify the role played by Tom Hagen, to find Anne-Elisabeth Hagen and to determine whether other people are involved.”
“As the case initially appeared, our main theory was that Anne-Elisabeth Hagen had been abducted by someone with a financial motive. And in June 2019, we came to believe that she had most likely been killed,” police said.
