Missing journalist killed in Danish submarine accident

Danish police find torso of woman after submarine sinking

The inventor, Peter Madsen, is being held on charges of involuntary manslaughter.

The inventor, Peter Madsen, had been claiming that he last saw Kim Wall when he dropped her off on the tip of an island in Copenhagen late on August 10. Her boyfriend reported her missing on Friday morning.

Madsen and Wall were sighted onboard the vessel by several people in waters off Copenhagen the evening of August 10.

Madsen's lawyer said that her client is relieved that the new information has been exposed but still maintains his innocence.

The volunteers were engaged in a dispute over the Nautilus between 2014 and 2015 before members of the board made a decision to transfer the vessel's ownership to Madsen, according to the website.

The 40-tonne submarine before it sank off the Danish coast.

The search will continue today using sonar equipment. He is due again in court next month.

Before his arrest, he appeared on Danish television to discuss the submarine's sinking and his rescue. There was no sign of Wall.

Wall, 30, was on the Nautilus for a story she was writing on Madsen and the 17-meter submarine.

She was a respected journalist who had written for several worldwide publications from countries including Uganda, Haiti and Cuba.

Mr Madsen (46) is known in Denmark as "Rocket Madsen", an uncompromising builder of submarines and space rockets who was hoping to become the world's first amateur space traveller riding in a homemade rocket. "I've argued with him as well".

"There's a dark irony in Kim, who travelled to North Korea and reported from Haiti, should disappear in Denmark", she wrote.
