So, his story has changed at least once. He claims he didn’t dismember her, he dropper her into the water whole, but weighed down. The coroner’s report should have some data to verify things one way or the other. And he needed a nap?
This smells fishy as hell, still.
In court, Madsen denied having amputated her limbs and said he dropped her “whole” body into the water, several hours after her death, after having a sleep because he was “tired and exhausted”.
He admitted that he wanted to “bury her at sea” by attaching metal to the body in order for it to sink.
“I had no contact with the body and didn’t want a dead body in my submarine,” Madsen told the court. “I put a rope around her feet to drag her out of the hatch,” he said, adding that he was crying during this operation.
“I am suicidal at this stage (and) thought a fitting end for Peter Madsen would be on board the Nautilus,” he said. “I was in a condition where I decided I couldn’t continue the life I had been living.”
He changed his mind, he said, because he wanted to see his wife and three cats.
