By Sara C Nelson

A Danish submarine inventor jailed for murdering and dismembering a journalist has attempted to escape the prison where he is serving a life sentence.

Peter Madsen, who was convicted of torturing and murdering Swedish reporter Kim Wall in 2017, briefly escaped from Herstedvester Prison in Albertslund on Tuesday morning, The Copenhagen Post reports.

The newspaper says the 49-year-old was apprehended nearby by police snipers. Pictures from the scene appear to show a man surrounded by armed police in the area west of Copenhagen.

In Denmark, a life sentence equates to 16 years on average but can be extended.

Madsen was convicted of murder, sexual assault and the dismemberment of Wall, 30, after luring her onto his homemade submarine with the promise of an interview.

Madsen denied murdering Wall, saying she died accidentally inside the submarine, but has confessed to throwing her body parts into the Baltic Sea.

The trial heard Wall had “likely had begged for her life” while Madsen carried out “a sadistic, yes, inhuman, sexual fantasy”.

Violent videos in which women were tortured and killed were found on Madsen’s computer, Her cause of death has never been established.
