Head, legs of missing Swedish journalist found

Inspector Moller reported that divers found the body parts after a couple of dives in the waters around Copenhagen.

Danish police said on Saturday they had found the head and the legs of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who died in mysterious circumstances on an inventor's homemade submarine.

Wall had last been seen alive on August 10 on board a self-built submarine owned by inventor Peter Madsen as it left Copenhagen harbor. The cause of death has yet to be established.

The head and legs were discovered about a mile away from where police found a torso with missing limbs, believed to be Wall's on August 21.

The independent writer disappeared in the wake of boarding a secretly assembled submarine with its Danish innovator, Peter Madsen, on August 10. However, the police reported that the body was discovered 15 injuries.

The plastic bags contained knives and "heavy metal pieces" apparently to make them sink, Jensen added, as cited by AP. He then changed his story and said that she died in an accident, hitting his head on the door, and he was "buried at sea".

Madsen, 46, who denies manslaughter, is in pre-trial detention until October 31 when a court will decide if he will remain in custody ahead of a possible trial. "Our society is governed by rule of law, and the case and any evidence will be judged by a court of law when the time comes, if charges are pressed", she told Swedish news agency TT.

Her torso had also been weighed down when it was found, also in Koge Bay.

Madsen created the UC3 Nautilus with private funding and launched it in May 2008.
