Google Maps street view: Murder suspect Peter Madsen was caught by Google’s cameras years ago
Peter Madsen, 46, has been charged with the murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, 30. He denies the charges.
The Danish inventor took Wall on a trip off the Copenhagen coast on 10 August in a homemade submarine he built, called NC3 Nautilus.
Wall was never seen alive again, and her mutilated torso was found by a passing cyclist on 21 August.
Her head, legs and clothing were found in weighted-down bags by police divers on 6 October.

Mr Madsen has said she died after being accidentally hit on the head by the submarine’s heavy hatch, and has denied charges of murder and mutilating a corpse.
He has been in custody since 12 August on the lesser charge of negligent manslaughter, with a judge saying at a pre-trial custody hearing “there is reasonable suspicion that the detainee is guilty of murder.”
Madsen and his submarine were captured on Google Maps street view cameras long before the fateful night.
He was photographed in August 2010 when his submarine helped push a rocket launch platform towards the launch site.

Images captured on Google Maps street view often raise questions – and one picture had the internet confused.

A flag of Pakistan can be seen from miles away, and has now been captured on Google Maps.

The flag has been created near Dera Bugti, in the north east of the country.
It is not clear who put it there or why, although the image from Google Earth has been shared across social media with no explantation forthcoming.
Many countries are keen to promote their area and get outsiders interested in it.
So it could be something created by the government to promote their country and show national pride.
