Kim Wall death: Danish inventor Madsen admits dismembering journalist

Danish Submarine Owner Admits Dismembering Body Of Swedish Journalist Police

A Danish inventor confessed to dismembering the body of a journalist last seen aboard his submarine in August, police said.

The globetrotting journalist was last seen alive on the evening of August 10 on the submarine, known as the UC3 Nautilus. Portions of her body were weighted down with metal in what police said was an effort to make them sink.

Madsen has denied any sexual relations with Wall, and insisted the hard drive did not belong to him.

In the latest update on Monday, published online by Danish police, Madsen claimed that Wall died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

She was a promising young journalist, tested in trouble spots throughout the world, reporting on a Danish inventor famed for building what was thought to be the world's largest private submarine.

Madsen is on trial for her murder in Denmark, but has consistently denied killing her. Hours later, Madsen — a celebrated entrepreneur who dreamed of launching a manned space mission — was rescued from his sinking submarine. He said that she died from exposure to the gas below deck, while he was above deck.

Previously he said a hatch had smashed her head.

Peter Madsen was charged with manslaughter in the death of journalist Kim Wall.

The police also said on Monday they would now extend the charges against Madsen - which already include murder and mutilating Wall's body - to include sexual assault without intercourse, based on 14 interior and exterior stab wounds to the journalist's genitals.

Locating Ms Wall's head had been crucial to investigators, as the final autopsy on the torso had been unable to establish the cause of death.

"He [Madsen] initially claimed that he dropped Wall off safely the same day they set out - then he changed his story, saying he "buried her at sea" after a heavy hatch fell on her head", the NPR story said. "We're taking an approach that there exists a sexual motive", Jensen told Swedish broadcaster SVT.

Investigators found a hard disk in Madsen's workshop that contained fetish films in which women were tortured, decapitated and burned. Prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen said the videos are thought to be real.

Madsen was set to remain in custody through November 15, police said.

Her family said it was unimaginable that she could be killed "just a few miles from the childhood home" after reporting from so many risky places.
