Inventor Peter Madsen admits dismembering journalist

The Danish inventor Peter Madsen has admitted dismembering the body of Swedish journalist Kim Wall aboard his submarine, but denies killing her.

In August, Wall went on board a homemade submarine to write a story about the ship's owner, Madsen, a well-known Danish inventor.

Wall, a freelancer based in China and NY, never returned from her interview with Madsen on August 10.

Who is Peter Madsen, the unusual owner of the submarine? The investigation revealed that sinking was allegedly provoked by Madsen himself.

On Aug. 23, police identified a headless female torso that washed ashore in Copenhagen as Wall's.

Previously he said a hatch had smashed her head. "I lose my foothold and the hatch shuts", the 46-year-old said.

The police said in a statement Madsen had told them in an October 14 interrogation that Wall, 30, had died from carbon monoxide poisoning inside the submarine, while he was on the deck of the vessel.

In the new interview, he also acknowledged that he had dismembered the Swedish journalist, who was last seen on August 10 when she went inside the 18-meter submarine with Madsen. The Court of first instance issued pre-trial detention for defendant for involuntary manslaughter, which was later added to crime of indecent treatment of corpse.

The submarine is one of three that Madsen built, and one of the largest privately built ones in the world.
