Kim Wall: Murder Charges Sought For Peter Madsen Over Dismembered Journalist

A Danish inventor suspected of killing a Swedish journalist on board his submarine could be charged with murder, a prosecutor said.

"We're trying to focus on her life and legacy now beyond the details that have so many unanswered questions", Jose said. The same day, Madsen was rescued from waters between Denmark and Sweden shortly before his submarine sank.

Several tests were conducted on the torso and it was found out that it had suffered damage suggesting "an attempt to make sure air and gas inside should leave the body so that it would not rise from the seabed".

Tabloid Ekstra Bladet, quoting unnamed sources, said Madsen has asked to be transferred to solitary confinement, allegedly out of fear of being attacked inside the prison. Accompany the murder charge will be a charge of "indecent handling of a corpse", according to the Independent, as her arms, legs and head seem to have been purposefully removed. According to the medical examiner, "the body bears the mark of having, most likely, been inflicted deliberate damage with the goal of ensuring that gasses can pass out of the body - possibly in an attempt to avoid that a body rises from the seabed", writes NPR.

Wall's boyfriend later told authorities the submarine had not returned, The AP reported. He said Wall was not with him on the sub when it sank. He has been arrested and charged with manslaughter in Wall's death. He was in custody when Wall's torso was found.

After Wall went missing, Koloma said she and a few other classmates started a private social media group to share photos and information about the ongoing investigation into her disappearance. However, he later changed his story, telling investigators Wall died accidentally on the submarine, which sank and that he buried her at sea. As a freelancer, she wrote for titles such as The New York Times and trained at the prestigious Columbia University's School of Journalism.

Why Does a WWI General Merit a Trump Tweet?
He referenced the supposed actions of General Pershing, and suggested them as a blueprint for how terrorists should be treated. She said it was particularly "disgusting" to see Trump mention it in the wake of the Barcelona attacks .

But the two men parted company after an angry spat in 2014 and Madsen created his own space project, RLM Space Lab.

The prosecutor has also made public Thursday, Mr. Madsen would be subjected to psychiatric expertise, an obligatory step in criminal proceedings in Danish, which should lead to the lifting of a part of the enigma Madsen as the character has fascinated and intrigued by it.

But that was the last time Wall was seen.

Police still do not know the cause of Wall's death, and divers are searching for more body parts. Police also identified the Swedish freelance journo's DNA in blood taken from the floor of the Nautilus.

A cyclist discovered her torso on Monday. "The tragedy has not only affected us and the other family but friends and colleagues around the world".

The Nautilus is the submarine from which Wall disappeared earlier this month, reportedly after boarding the sub to interview Madsen for an article she was writing about him. One of the cases the police are looking into today occurred back in 1986. That case has never been solved.
