    This has been in the news for days now. Swedish journalist Kim Wall followed a Danish inventor on his self-made submarine between the two countries. The inventor was later that night rescued from the sinking submarine, but no sight of the journalist. He claims that he dropped her off - but she hasn't been seen since she boarded the submarine.

    The police arrested the inventor as they suspect foul play. They later learn from the technical search that the submarine was deliberately sunk, by a human, from inside.

    Witnesses has said they saw the submarine driving without its lights on, which isn't allowed.

    The inventor has altered his story, but keep claiming that he left the journalist on shore before heading back.

    Kim Wall has been missing for 6 days now, and police are searching the waters for her body, as they believe she is dead (possibly killed and thrown overboard).

    She's dead. The suspect, the submarine owner, has confirmed to the police that Kim Wall died on the submarine "by accident" and that he "buried her at sea".
    (I take it like he dumped the body overboard, and probably because he somehow is to blame for her death).
    Police has yet to find the body.

    Torso of a female found, and it's been identified as journalist Kim Wall. Her body has been mutilated. Arms & legs missing. It's believed that her body parts were tied to heavy metal in order to sink them in the sea.
    Kim Wall's blood has been found in the submarine.

    Meanwhile, submarine owner says he is innocent of murder and is "glad" that the body was found. He is only confessing to throwing a dead body overboard. o_O:rolleyes:

    I dunno
    This whole thing is really awful - apparently Mads is claiming that her death was an accident. Even after her dismembered torso was found.

    I feel so bad for her family and friends to be honest. And now they'll have to suffer through hearing about all the gory details in court - ugh.

    This was in UK press today, poor woman, what she endured doesnt bear thinking about.

    The head of Swedish journalist Kim Wall has been found, two months after she disappeared on a trip with a Danish submariner, Danish police say.

    Divers found bags containing her head, legs and clothing in Koge Bay, just south of Copenhagen, the city's police inspector Jens Moller Jensen said.

    They were found not far from where Ms Wall's torso was discovered 11 days after she boarded Peter Madsen's submarine on 10 August.

    Mr Madsen, 46, denies murdering her.

    He also denies a charge of mutilating her corpse.

    Mr Moller Jensen said the bags, found on Friday, had been weighed down with pieces of metal.

    "Yesterday morning we found a bag within which we found Kim Wall's clothes, underwear, stockings, and shoes. In the same bag laid a knife, and there were some car pipes to weigh the bag down," he said.

    He said a post-mortem examination confirmed the head was Ms Wall's and that it showed "no sign of fracture... [or] any sign of other blunt violence to the skull".

    This means that Madsen's defense that "Kim Wall accidentally was hit by a 70 kilo lid, which caused her to take a fall and die", was a complete lie. You can't get a 70 kilo heavy metal lid fall on your head without there being traces of it on the head.

    I believe this was a deliberate sex crime.

    Peter Madsen confesses to dismembering Kim Wall --- and now comes with his 3rd explanation of what happened. In the new version, he claims Kim Wall died of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning on the submarine, and he decided to dismember her body and throw it overboards.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...-owner-peter-madsen-admits-dismembering-body/

    More lies, lies, lies. :rolleyes:

    I wonder what his 4th explanation will be, when they examine the submarine and finds that his carbon monoxide story is BS?

    Peter Madsen was sentenced to life in prison for murder, sexual crime & crime against peace of the grave. The judge declared that Madsen had invited different women to the submarine, had showed interest in mutilation, brought tools with him to the submarine, cleaned the submarine and sunken it on purpose. Madsen have not provided reasonable explanations for these circumstances. Madsen's attourney says they will appeal against the sentence.
