If Iceland has so many people who disappear, isn’t it possible one or both of them just left the country? Saevar and Erla just dipped over to Denmark, what’s to say that one of the victims didn’t do the same?

Geirfinnur's wife was actually having an affair with another man who lived in Keflavik. Shortly after Geirfinnur dissapeared he moved to Germany. It's almost certain who killed Geirfinnur. On the night Geirfinnur dissapeared 3 people were driving. Stefán "malaga prisoner" Almarsson was driving with his girlfriend and his friend, Þórður Jóhann Eyþórsson. Stefán Almarsson is known in iceland as "the Malaga prisoner" because he spent time in jail in Malaga, Spain. On the night Stefán was very drunk and drove over Guðmundur. They put his body in the car and put the car in the garage, covered the car with sheets and left it there for 3 days. He then later got the same type of car in a different color. It is believed that Guðmundur died in the car.

I don’t really get why this video/ people in the comments are making jokes. It’s an extremely sad sorry for the victims obviously and the accused. They were treated horribly for these murders they did not commit. If this is “journalism” not sure why they are joking about it.

[edited for spelling] You guys want to try the burning car that was found on HWY 1 in Billings in 2000? An airport employee went to clock out and five minutes later was found two miles away and stuffed in the trunk of her own car, the the car on fire. What's more bizarre is that the car was in a spot that the entire city could see (we have cliffs called the rims that are on the north of Billings) and nobody noticed until an elderly couple drove down the HWY and saw the smoke and called 911. The theories are insane. Try it, I dare you.

I wonder if anyone has looked at the fact that the names are so similar that maybe someone was after Geirfinnur for some reason and Gudmunder just happened to be in the wrong place. Since Gudmunder was so drunk when he left his friends maybe he slurred his own name and someone thought he was Geirfinnur

There’s too much about this mystery that doesn’t add up! Like if the people confessed to the murder why doesn’t the police ask them how they kill those people and where they left the bodies!!!! Like what?? And also what was their motive to kill? Were they getting paid or something for it? Or was it just completely random??

Is this the same Iceland I visited 12 years ago? Where they just had a box on the bus where you were supposed to pay for your ticket unsupervised, in other words they trusted you to pay what you were supposed to (although you could pay whatever if you wanted)? Where everyone were super nice and helpful? I guess maybe this made them that way to make up for it?:p
