Kim Wall: Danish Submarine Was 'Deliberately Sunk'

Kim Wall: Danish Submarine Was 'Deliberately Sunk'

Police said Swedish journalist Kim Wall, 30, was still missing after taking a ride on Peter Madsen's home-made 17-metre sub, which sank on Friday morning.

Wall, a Swedish journalist who has reported on North Korea, climate change and post-war Sri Lanka, was reportedly on assignment to interview Peter Madsen, an inventor and builder of subs and rockets.

The BBC News wrote that the Nautilus was raised but Wall was not found and investigation into her disappearance continued. On Sunday, they said Madsen had given another explanation, but declined to elaborate.

Although Wall's body has not been found, Madsen was arrested for involuntary manslaughter.

The Copenhagen police now working with the authorities in Stockholm to continue research in the territorial waters of the country.

Wall, a freelance journalist who lives between NY and Beijing, had been writing about Madsen and his submarine at the time of disappearing, according to Swedish and Danish reports.

Copenhagen police suspect that Madsen deliberately sank the submarine, though he initially blamed technical problems.

Maxine Waters: Trump 'Most Deplorable Person I've Met in My Life'
Waters' response: "I'm good where I am". "The worst I've ever seen, the worst I've ever experienced, yes I do", she said ". The interview on " The View " was Waters' second TV appearance of the day.

Madsen reportedly told police that Wall left the submarine at the island after 3 ½ hours into the trip Thursday night, The Guardian said.

"It took about 30 seconds for Nautilus to sink, and I couldn't close any hatches or anything", Madsen said. "But I guess that was pretty good because I otherwise still would have been down there".

Police in Sweden said they had tried without success to contact Wall by phone and that her family had not heard from her. "Whether the woman was on board the submarine at the time of her disappearance is unclear", police said.

What is likely the last picture taken of Wall, showed the freelance journalist, smiling, aboard the sub and standing alongside Madsen, whose back is turned, just before the Nautilus departed on its ill-fated Thursday voyage.

Madsen made headlines when he successfully financed the building of the 40-tonne, 18-metre Nautilus through crowdfunding, completing it in 2008. It can carry eight people.

Madsen's defence lawyer Betina Hald told broadcaster TV2 that the inventor, who built the submarine at the centre of the case, had accepted Copenhagen City Court's decision Saturday to remand him in custody for 24 days.
