Danish inventor admits dismembering journalist

Danish inventor Peter Madsen has admitted to dismembering Swedish journalist Kim Wall on board home-made his submarine and dumping her body parts in the sea, but still denies killing her, police say.

The police said in a statement Madsen had told them in an October 14 interrogation that Wall, 30, had died from carbon monoxide poisoning inside the submarine, while he was on the deck of the vessel.

Now, Madsen is claiming that Wall died from carbon monoxide poisoning while he was on deck.

Divers later found Wall's severed head in Denmark's Køge Bay. The inventor and his lawyer have maintained he did not kill her. Police said they added an additional charge of sexual assault without intercourse after finding 14 stab wounds in and around Wall's genitals.

Police on Monday expanded the charges against him to include sexual assault.

During their investigation, police found videos on Madsen's personal computer of women being tortured, decapitated and slain.

Wall, a freelancer based in China and NY, never returned from her interview with Madsen on August 10.

"This hard drive doesn't belong to me", Madsen insisted, saying numerous people had access to his workshop.

Wall, who was 30 when she died, wrote prolifically from all over the world in publications such as The New York Times, Harper's Magazine and The Atlantic. Police said there were "no signs of fracture or blunt force trauma to the skull", casting doubt on Madsen's claims.

Madsen's pre-trial detention is set to expire Tuesday but police said no new hearing will be held as the 46-year-old has voluntarily agreed to remain in detention.

Police say the review of so-called "cold cases" is standard procedure and has not provided any immediate link to the case involving Wall and Madsen.

At the time of her disappearance, she was believed to be working on a feature story about Madsen, an eccentric, well-known figure in Denmark.

And his homemade submarine Nautilus, launched in 2008, was the biggest private sub ever made when he built it with help from a group of volunteers.

Madsen has voluntarily accepted the prosecutor's request to extend his custody until November 15, his lawyer said earlier on Monday, meaning he will not appear in court on Tuesday as initially planned.

Madsen was charged with manslaughter but pleaded not guilty.
