Stockholm: A Swedish journalist missing since August 11 after interviewing the inventor of a huge do-it-yourself submarine died in an accident on board the vessel and the inventor buried her at sea, Danish police said Monday.

The inventor, Peter Madsen, who has been accused of negligent manslaughter, "told police and the court that there was an accident on board the sub that led to the death of Kim Wall, and that he subsequently buried her at sea in an undefined location of the Koge Bay" south of Copenhagen, police said in a statement.
