A Danish inventor has admitted dismembering the body of the Swedish journalist Kim Wall, whose body parts were found at sea after she interviewed him on board his homemade submarine.
Peter Madsen initially denied cutting up her body and said she died when a heavy submarine hatch accidentally fell on her head.
Police said he has since changed his story to say Wall died of carbon monoxide poisoning while on board.
“He has now explained that Kim Wall died as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning inside the submarine at a time when he was on deck,” police said. “Furthermore, Madsen has admitted that he later dismembered her corpse and spread the body parts in Koge Bay” off Copenhagen.
Wall, who had written for the Guardian and the New York Times, was reported missing by her boyfriend in the early hours of 11 August when she failed to return from her interview.
On August 21st, her headless torso was found floating in Koge Bay, and after a search, her head, legs and clothes were recovered in plastic bags in the same waters on 7 October reports The Guardian
While in custody, Madsen, a self-taught engineer and inventor, has changed his account of the events several times.
After intentionally sinking his submarine early on 11 August in Koge Bay, he was picked up by a rescue vessel and told police he had dropped Wall off on land after their interview the previous evening.
