Kim Wall, the Swedish Journalist that mysteriously disappeared while on a submarine ride along with Danish Inventor Peter Madsen, died in an accident and was buried at sea he said in his second accounting of the events.

BBC reported the incarcerated inventor provided additional details, although fell short of explaining the "accident" that claimed Ms. Wall's life.

He told authorities that he buried her at sea somewhere in Koge Bay, south of Copenhagen.

Wall, who had been working freelance for Wired Magazine at the time of her disappearance was completing a profile on the self-taught Aerospace engineer, was last seen eleven days ago, on Thursday, August 10, standing in the tower of the submarine, Nautilus, with Madsen as it departed for what should have been a six hour or less excursion aboard Madsen's self-constructed UC3 sub.

Wall was first reported as missing by her partner two hours after she was supposed to complete the assignment.

Madsen Maintains his Innocence

Peter Madsen has maintained his innocence in this matter according to his lawyer.

According to the BBC article, "Peter Madsen's lawyer, Betina Hald Engmark, said her client had not admitted any wrongdoing. She said he had given evidence to the police during preliminary questioning and "information from this" had now emerged. "My client has not confessed to anything, my client still pleads not guilty to the charges against him," she said."

Search for Wall Continues

Since the revelation by Madsen authorities have intensified their search for the thirty year old journalist in the chilly waters of Copenhagen Harbor and the Oresund Straights. 

Her family has pleaded for closure and expressed the hope that her body will be returned to them for a proper burial.

Madsen's attempt to cover the events that took place onboard the submerged submarine have yet to be revealed even as he has changed his accounting of the event for a second time.

Burial at sea is usually reserved for long term sail or travel when keeping a cadaver on board would cause imminent harm to the remainder of the vessel's occupants and completed with the family's permission. The hour trip to Copenhagen Harbor doesn't fit the parameters of long term sail or irreparable harm to the remainder of the ship and crew. And it clearly wasn't completed with permission of her family.

Although it would fit those parameters of course if Madsen had brutally murdered Wall and burial at sea would sufficiently cover the evidence.

Madsen remains incarerated charged with second degree negligent manslaughter.
