    Kim Wall murder: Peter Madsen texted friend about submarine murder plot days before her death
    By Isabelle Gerretsen February 17, 2018 16:53 GMT

    Danish inventor Peter Madsen allegedly texted a friend details of a murder on a submarine, just days before journalist Kim Wall's death.

    Madsen has been charged with the murder and dismemberment of Wall, whose headless torso was found floating in Copenhagen harbour. She had 15 stab wounds around her vagina.

    In January, he pleaded guilty to indecent handling of a corpse, but denied killing Wall.

    It has now emerged that Madsen sent details of a murder plot which takes place on a submarine to a friend and recent sexual partner.

    Who is Peter Madsen, the Danish inventor charged with murdering Kim Wall?

    In August, 30-year-old Swedish reporter Kim Wall stepped aboard the UC3 Nautilus, a 58-foot submarine built by Danish inventor Peter Madsen and was never seen alive again.

    Wall, who had plans to move to Beijing with her boyfriend, skipped her going-away party to interview the well-known engineer and entrepreneur for a story.

    Shortly after stepping onto the submarine, Wall disappeared and Madsen, the subject of her interview, soon became her suspected killer.

    Police believe Madsen intentionally sank the submarine the day after Wall accompanied him on the vessel. He initially told police Wall disembarked on an island near Copenhagen hours after their trip began. But he later changed his story, claiming that she died during an onboard accident and he had “buried her at sea.”

    Convicted Kim Wall killer will not appeal verdict, only sentence
    By CHRISTOPHER BRENNAN
    MAY 07, 2018


    Convicted killer Peter Madsen will not appeal the verdict for the murder of journalist Kim Wall.

    Madsen, a 47-year old inventor from Denmark, was sentenced to life in prison by a Copenhagen court last month for the murder of the 30-year-old Columbia University graduate aboard his homemade submarine.

    He was also found guilty of sexually assaulting the Swede, who was writing a story about him last August, and mishandling her corpse.

    Danish inventor Peter Madsen appeals life sentence for Kim Wall murder

    <snip>

    Defence lawyer Betina Hald Engmark told Denmark’s TV2 the appeal could not be interpreted as an admission of guilt.

    Madsen “doesn’t confess murdering Kim Wall but that he would like the case to be over with — also for the sake of the relatives and witnesses”, Ms Engmark said.
