Swedish journalist's torso found in submarine death mystery

Peter Madsen's private submarine sits on a pier in Copenhagen's harbor. Danish police have identified a headless limbless torso that washed ashore Monday as that of Kim Wall the journalist who joined Madsen on his sub earlier this month to rep

Wall was working on a story about Danish inventor Peter Madsen's submarine when she went missing.

According to Fox News on Wednesday afternoon, police have evidence suggesting that Madsen deliberately sank the sub after Wall was dead.

Wall's close friend and former classmate at Columbia Journalism School, Yan Cong, 26, said the reporter "felt Beijing was an exciting place where she felt she belonged".

"Police technicians investigate the rescued private submarine UC3 Nautilus"- on which police believe Kim Wall was killed - in Copenhagen Harbour.

Prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen said that police expect to raise the preliminary charges against Madsen to murder and indecent handling of corpse when he appears at a hearing September 5 on whether his pre-trial detention should be extended.

Google and Walmart team up to take on a common enemy: Amazon
Google and Walmart are teaming up to take on Amazon (and Alexa ) with voice-activated commerce and more plans for 2018. Wal-Mart customers can soon link their Wal-Mart accounts directly to Google Express , Google's online marketplace.

The torso had been dismembered, and had no head, arms or legs.

Whatever the events leading up to Kim Wall's death, her original story on Madsen the maverick inventor and his creation will now never appear.

Danish police believe Mr Madsen deliberately sank the 40-tonne submarine hours after the search for Ms Wall began. He was initially detained for 24 days on preliminary manslaughter charges by Copenhagen City Court. He later told authorities "an accident occurred onboard that led to her death" and he "buried" her at sea.

A graduate of Columbia University and the London School of Economics, Wall reported on the tourism industry in post-earthquake Haiti and more recently, the underground online culture in Cuba.

Gathering at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in NY for a candlelight vigil Wednesday, former classmates sang "Stand by Me" and recalled Wall's distinctive reporting, charm and humor. In fact, Madsen's lawyer, Betina Hald Engmark, said that she and her client "only find it positive that there is a final clarification".

United States extends sanctions against North Korea
Among 10 companies sanctioned, five were based in China, one in Russian Federation and two each in Singapore and Namibia. In July, China bought no coal from North Korea, the fifth month after Beijing halted coal shipments in February.

Wall's headless torso was found Monday on a beach off Copenhagen, attached to a piece of metal "likely with the goal to make it sink", Copenhagen police investigator Jens Moeller Jensen told reporters.

The UC3 Nautilus was a seperate project that was spearheaded by Madsen and was built with the help of the collective.

"We sent each other photos of us wearing the sneakers during reporting trips from different parts of the world", Cong said.

Wall, a Sweden-born freelance journalist, studied at the Sorbonne university in Paris, the London School of Economics and at Columbia University in NY, where she graduated with a master's degree in journalism in 2013. She allowed us to come to the quake Haiti, to the torture chamber of idi amin in Uganda and the minefield in Sri Lanka.

Red-headed, petite and humble, Wall often surprised those that judged her on first impressions. And why wouldn't he bring her body to shore? She gave voice to the weak, vulnerable and marginalised people.
