Danish submarine sub owner accused over journalist's death

Danish submarine owner arrested over journalist's death Danish submarine owner accused of causing Swedish journalist's death

Peter Madsen was arrested on Friday on preliminary manslaughter charges over the disappearance of 30-year-old Kim Wall after his 40-tonne, 60ft-long submarine sank off Denmark's eastern coast.

The submarine's Danish inventor, Peter Madsen, is being held on suspicion of manslaughter in Wall's disappearance. The inventor has denied wrongdoing and said that he dropped Wall-who was reported to be the only other person on board the submarine with him-off on an island close to Copenhagen Thursday night before the submarine sank, according to AP reports.

Ms Hald Engmark said Madsen is "willing to cooperate" and has not decided whether to appeal the detention ruling.

However, Swedish police said later on Friday they were investigating the whereabouts of a missing woman who had been on the submarine at some point.

The missing woman has been identified as Kim Wall, a 30-year-old New York-based freelance journalist who has written for the New York Times, the Guardian and Vice Magazine.

She also received a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University in NY in 2013.

Madsen had wanted to launch himself into the space race before building his submarine the Nautilus, the biggest privately-made one ever when he made it in 2008.

Madsen "told us he had technical problems" to explain why the submarine had failed to respond to radio contact, Mr Damgaard said.

The team will travel to San Francisco on Tuesday to begin joint practices with the 49ers ahead of their August 19 preseason game. His backup, Shaq Barrett, will miss an extended period of time due to a hip injury.

"(He) came up again and stayed in the tower until water came into it" - before swimming to a nearby boat as the submarine sank, he added.

Local broadcaster TV2 aired footage of Madsen getting off the private boat and giving a thumbs-up sign, but the journalist was nowhere to be seen.

Madsen's defense lawyer, Bettina Hald Engmark, said her client maintains he is innocent.

Madsen, who is well-known in Denmark as a co-founder of amateur rocket group Copenhagen Suborbitals, managed to escape the sinking vessel.

Peter Madsen was arrested Friday on preliminary manslaughter charges after his 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) UC3 Nautilus sank.

The woman's boyfriend alerted authorities that the submarine was missing early on Friday.

The Navy said the sub, the UC3 Nautilus, was seen sailing, but then sank shortly afterwards. The inventor told authorities Friday that he dropped Wall off on an island in Copenhagen's harbor before the vessel sank.
