Colleagues about the killer: He was worn down

Come away, before it ends up wrong.

How to remember Niclas Christensen, that he several times said to the man who on the night of Friday took the lives of two women.

First his girlfriend, 31-year-old Line Messerschmidt, which he is, according to Facebook was engaged with, and that he had two small children with. And an hour later, the 35-year-old Jeanette Rømer Hansen, who was his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child. Both women were beaten to death with a knife.

the 39-year-old Martin Degn, as the court has recognized dødsvold, was employed in a construction company, which is owned by Niclas Christensen's father, in september last year.

When the Extra Leaf is present with the 60-year-old master craftsman news about Martin Degns deeds, he has difficulty to comprehend it.

- I remember a quiet, timid man, who had a childish behavior. A man who was afraid of his own shadow. I had a little pity on him, says Kim Christensen.

After a short period of time it went up for him, to Martin Degn, in spite of his apprenticeship as a carpenter could not carry out the tasks the master had anticipated. It was small tasks or simple messages, he is not perceived. And he could not spell out an address, remember Kim Christensen.

instead, he was employed as a driver and used as the so-called ’håndmand’. But his illness began after a period of steady attendance to be too high.

I kept him, even though he lacked skill, but was eventually absence too much, says Kim Christensen, who has five employees today.

Martin Degn was terminated 7. december.

After the termination, they heard the long not from him. But in april the phone rang. Martin Degn seemed depressed. He would hear if he had to sleep out in a personnel carrier in some time.

He offered to work for free with the hope of at a time to get the payment. If he does not earned money, would his girlfriend throw him out, remember Kim Christensen, who instead of giving him work-advised him to go to the municipality.

- Imagine if I had helped him. It is almost impossible to bear the thought of what has happened since, he states.

the 29-year-old Niclas Christensen came to learn Martin Degn to know, before he was a double killer. Even though he has had to do with him since december, he has the desire to refine the image of the former colleague.

Martin was called up almost every day of his girlfriend. I saw that he began to sob afterwards. He was simply worn down to size and could not give again, says Niclas Christensen.

Martin had told us that there had arisen a violent jealousy in the relationship, because he had been in contact with his ex-girlfriend, 35-year-old Jeanette Rømer Hansen.

Niclas Christensen got the impression that Martin was a man who stood up in the morning in order to be a good boyfriend and father, but who had not the skill to deal with the crisis, as the couple ended up in.

Out from the stirred up the conversations he overheard at work, was Martin Degn under strict control, assess Niclas Christensen

Both father and son agree that it is inexcusable, what their previous colleague has done. They are both horrified by the killing and would wish that they had given him a second chance, when he called and asked for help.
