The streaming company Spotify has now come forward and confirmed that the British man killed by the truck attack was their employee. 41-year-old Chris Bevington was the director of global partnerships and business development for Spotify and was based in Stockholm. Bevington had worked for the company for five years and an integral part of their business.
Spotify's founder and CEO Daniel Ek released a statement (below) on the company's Facebook page talking about the loss and how the company is doing everything to aid the mourning family and friends.
The terrorist attack happened on Friday and the Swedish authorities' prime suspect is a 39-year-old from Uzbekistan, Rakhmat Akilov, who fled the scene. Akilov's asylum was rejected last June and was waiting deportation but managed to avoid it by giving a false address.
