Danish police on Wednesday (August 23) identified a headless female torso found in the Copenhagen waterside as that of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who police believe was killed on a home-made submarine. Copenhagen Police Spokesman Jens Moller said the body had suffered damage suggesting an attempt to rid the body of air and gas so that it would not rise from the seabed. Danish inventor Peter Madsen, charged with killing Wall on his home-made submarine, told the court she had died in an accident and that he "buried" her at sea, changing his previous statement that he dropped her off alive in Copenhagen. The body was found on Monday (August 21) by a passing cyclist and police said then it was too early to identify the body which was missing its head, legs and arms.
