An amateur submarine maker is in custody in Copenhagen as police investigate the disappearance of a Swedish journalist who had been onboard his vessel before he is alleged to have deliberately sunk it off Denmark’s east coast.

Peter Madsen, a Danish inventor whose crowdfunded submarine Nautilus sank near Copenhagen on Friday, was arrested on preliminary manslaughter charges but has denied responsibility for the fate of 30-year-old Kim Wall.

He claims she disembarked on an island about three-and-a-half hours into their trip on Thursday night, according to Copenhagen police.

Police spokesman Jens Møller Jensen said on Sunday that the submarine had been raised from the sea bed and searched but no body had been discovered. The search for Wall in the water, from the air and on land, continues.

Møller Jensen added that there were indications that Madsen deliberately sank his submarine.

On Saturday, after a two-hour custody hearing held in private, Judge Kari Sørensen ordered that Madsen be held in pre-trial detention for 24 days while the investigation into Wall’s disappearance continued.

Prosecutor Louise Pedersen said Madsen faced a preliminary manslaughter charge “for having killed in an unknown way and in an unknown place Kim Isabell Frerika Wall of Sweden sometime after Thursday 5pm”.

Madsen’s defence lawyer, Betina Hald Engmark, said her client maintains his innocence. He is “willing to cooperate” and hasn’t decided whether to appeal the detention ruling, Hald Engmark said.

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

You can ask, "What did she have on Hillary?" in this case.

She was investigating the crime foundation.

Full marks for creativity, though. Private submarine and all that, just to hide a body off a journalist poking around the Clinton Foundation.

I'd have used a shallow grave in the desert, vegas mob-style. If I were the murdering, body-hiding kind. Which I'm not.

She didn't want to be part of his mile deep club.

He probably sunk it to get rid of the blood evidence.

Freaky Dutchman builds a sub, is the last to see a pretty girl alive, sub sinks, and then her headless torso is found.

His story changed a few times.

First he dropped her off.

Then she died in an accident and he gave her a burial at sea.

They've found her blood inside the sub and identified her headless and limbless body. The limbs and head were cut off purposely.

Seems to be cut and dry.

He claims she had a accident and he decided to give her burial at sea  

Guessing his lawyer is going for the insane defence. Dunno how Daneland is but our institutes for the criminaly insane are pretty good with thing like small appartments and indoor heated swimming pools etc.

We've had threads about that particular Dutchman and the cool submarine he designed and built.

Looks like his goose is cooked though.

ETA: the police are now looking at him for the murder of a female Japanese tourist.

Yep.  Now that the body has been found, his entire defense will implode. I'm sure the pressure on him to plead guilty will only increase. Guess there is no depth to his depravity - the charges are certainly justified.

On Wednesday Madsen’s lawyer said her client still maintains that Wall died accidentally, and that the discovery of the journalist’s torso did not mean he was guilty of killing her.

Let's see:
1) decaptitated to prevent identification
2) body slashed to prevent gases from causing the torso to surface
3) body weighed down to keep it from floating
4) blood found on submarine.
5) submarine was scuttled when rescue ship appears, ensuring the survival of Madsen.

I say guilty.
