A Nation Mourns the Death of Ola Brunkert

The drummer of Swedish pop group Abba has been found dead with his throat cut in an apparent accident at his home on the island of Majorca.

Police investigating the death of Ola Brunkert, 61, (second from right) believe he may have fallen through a glass door in his kitchen wounding his neck on a shard of glass.

He then apparently tried to leave the house to seek help but collapsed in the garden and bled to death.

His body was discovered in the garden of his villa in Arta on the island's northeastern coast by a neighbor at around 8pm on Sunday.
A police spokesman said it seemed likely that his death was the result of a tragic accident but investigators have not ruled anything out.
