'No evidence' woman imprisoned son for decades

The woman suspected in Sweden earlier this week of holding her son captive for nearly three decades has now been cleared from investigation.

Prosecutors in Stockholm said on Thursday that they're closing the investigation, and found no evidence of imprisonment in the apartment where the man in his 40s was found.

Prosecutor Emma Olsson also told Reuters that the injuries he was found with -- such as bruises and sores -- could not be attributed to inflicted violence.

Olsson says the injuries were due to the man's ill-health, and that he remains in hospital.

The mother denied all allegations and was released from custody on Wednesday, after three days of detention, following the discovery of the man in the apartment by a relative.
