Danish Police Recover Some Missing Body Parts of the Journalist Kim Wall

The head and legs of Swedish journalist Kim Wall have been recovered after she died in mysterious circumstances aboard a Danish inventor's homemade submarine.

Ms. Wall disappeared after meeting Peter Madsen, a Danish amateur space rocket and submarine builder, for an interview on August 10.

On August 23, police identified a headless female torso that washed ashore in Copenhagen as Wall's.

They did not determine a cause of death at the time but found it had been "deliberately mutilated" and suffered 14 stab wounds.

"We found a leg and then another leg, and shortly thereafter, we found a head, which was also in a bag weighed down by several pieces of metal", Chief Police Investigator Jens Møller Jensen said at a press briefing Saturday, according to a translation by The Guardian.

The journalist's boyfriend alerted police the next morning that the submarine had not returned to Copenhagen as expected after its test run. He slipped and lost his grasp on the incubate, which at that point hit her on the head, he said.

He denied having a saw on his vessel when Wall accompanied him, DR reported.

The detention of Madsen, who has denied manslaughter charges, expires October 31 when a court will decide if he will continue to remain in custody ahead of a possible trial.

Madsen has been charged with manslaughter, the legal equivalent of murder in Denmark. And on August 21, Wall's torso, with metal attached, was discovered.

Madsen was later captured and held in guardianship on doubt of murdering Wall.

Wall, a graduate of Columbia University and London School of Economics, was based between Beijing and NY.

Currently, Madsen maintains that Wall died accidentally when a 70kg submarine hatch fell on her, before he disposed of her body in the sea.
