Police in Denmark have identified a headless torso found in the Copenhagen waterside as that of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who police believe was killed on board a Danish inventor’s homemade submarine.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday morning, Copenhagen police’s vice-president, Jens Møller, said metal weights had been attached to the body to prevent it from floating to the surface.
Peter Madsen, a Danish inventor about whom Wall is believed to have been writing a feature article, was charged with manslaughter last week.

He told a court hearing this week that Wall died in an accident on his vessel and that he “buried” her at sea.
:wtf: Guy may be a decent inventor but criminal mastermind he ain't...

Danish Police Recover Body Parts of the Journalist Kim Wall

Jens Moller, the chief investigator in the case, said at a news conference outside Police Headquarters in Copenhagen that the divers had found plastic bags containing the body parts and clothing belonging to Ms. Wall in Koge Bay, southwest of Copenhagen, on Friday.

“We have found the head and two legs, but we have not found her arms,” Mr. Moller said.

Medical examiners who inspected the new evidence on Friday night used dental records to identify the head, which did not show any damage to the cranium, Mr. Moller said.

“I don’t want to speculate about what happened,” the chief investigator said. “I can only say that there are no fractures or other injuries to the cranium.”

That contradicts Mr. Madsen’s account, in which he said Ms. Wall, 30, had died accidentally after a heavy hatch on the submarine’s tower collapsed on her head.

The prosecutor also told the court that officers had found videos showing the torture and killing of women on a hard drive owned by Mr. Madsen. The videos did not appear to have been made by the inventor, but they indicated “an interest in fetish, torture and murder,” Mr. Buch-Jepsen said.

I'm busy watching Mindhunter on Netflix and this story resonate with with a serial killer who dismembered his victims.

If it's hard to catch the killer he'll do it again.

Kim Wall murder: Danish inventor Peter Madsen given life sentence

Danish inventor Peter Madsen has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of the Swedish journalist Kim Wall on his submarine.

Madsen had planned to kill Ms Wall, 30, either by suffocating her or cutting her throat, the Copenhagen court heard.

Her dismembered remains were found by Danish police at sea on 21 August last year, 11 days after she interviewed him on board his homemade vessel.

Madsen, 47, has said he will appeal against the conviction.

He was found guilty of premeditated murder and sexual assault after previously admitting to dismembering Ms Wall's body on the submarine and throwing her remains overboard.
