    Peter Madsen was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall aboard his homemade submarine in Denmark in August 2017.

    Danish submarine inventor Peter Madsen was recaptured after attempting to escape from the jail in which he is incarcerated in Copenhagen's suburbs on Tuesday, Danish police said.

    A video of an episode from a police operation to capture Madsen was shared online.

    In 2018, Madsen was sentenced to life imprisonment for torturing and murdering 30-year-old Swedish reporter Kim Wall, who came to his submarine to interview him and make a report. Madsen has denied murdering Wall and claimed that she died as a result of an accident inside the submarine. However, he confessed to throwing her body parts into the sea.
