After the bathe he climed up the strand to witness a shocking view; four badly bruised youngsters laying down on a torn apart tent. Soon the horrible news were everywhere, incident resembling to Tulilahti murders had taken place in Espoo, Finland.

The camping crew was formed by two 15-year-old girls and two 18-year-old boys. Three of them met their destiny that night: Maila Irmeli Björklund, Anja Tuulikki Mäki and Seppo Antero Boisman. Nils Wilhelm Gustafsson survived with severe injuries.

Someone armed with a knife had attacked them straight through the tent canvas.

Many people were questioned by the police and investigations took place but the police didn't manage to catch the killer in the 1960's. Years passed by and the case became forgotten.

It could be considered a tourist attraction to CoB fanboys and girls, so why not? Though it would be better if the marked location was the exact spot of the camp.

Is there even anything to see at Lake Boredom to make it a tourist attraction? (serious question) Like maybe a reaper rollercoaster or an ice cream stall or something?

Well in that case lets add Alexi's house, and maybe his highschool, elementary and the hospital were he was born.

Hi, I was the idiot who added it. And I have visited it since then. It's a normal finnish lake with a beach. Nothing special. The water is great (max 15 celsius xD). I have photos, I will upload them soon.

Mysterious murder and later on to be added in the name of a certain popular metal band. Meh, never been there, it's just another finnish lake. Not even one of the most beautiful.

Well, I guess that Lake Bodom is the inspiration for the band name and important to the band. Whereas Alexi's house isn't anything special and has nothing to do with Children Of Bodom other than the fact that a member of theirs happens to live there. If the band had've named themselves "21 Main St, Finland" (wherever the hell he lives) then that would be more significant.

I wouldn't mind going there if I ever happen to be near. It'd be nice if they sold postcards too.

"Wish you were here Reapin' Round Lake Bodom with us!"
