What Happened To Kim Wall?
It took over two weeks for Kim Wall's death to be confirmed after Madsen was pulled to safety after his submarine sank. Wall's torso was found on a beach by a passing cyclist on 21 August 2017, ten days after she was reported missing. Her head, legs and clothing were found by police divers on October 6 the same year.
During the police investigation, Madsen gave three different versions of what had happened to the journalist, which eventually helped lead to his conviction. Madsen first claimed that he had dropped her off the night before. Later, he claimed there had been a “terrible accident” on board – in which Wall had fatally hit her head – and he had dumped her body. In his final account, he said Wall had died on board of carbon monoxide poisoning and admitted to dismembering her body (which he had previously denied).
Madsen was given a life sentence after a judge ruled that Wall’s murder was cynical and planned.
