Sub killer ‘threatened psychologist’
A DANISH man convicted of murdering a Swedish journalist on his homemade submarine has been remanded in custody after he confessed to threatening several people on his brief escape from jail.
Prosecutors said Peter Madsen threatened a psychologist and a warden on his way out of the Herstedvester prison in Copenhagen and allegedly pointed an object that looked like a gun at the driver of a van once he was outside the facility.
Madsen was recaptured after about five minutes.
The 49-year-old was convicted in 2018 for the murder of Kim Wall, a 30-year-old Swedish reporter he had lured aboard his homemade submarine in 2017 with the promise of an interview.
