Swedish journalist Kim Wall's severed head found in Copenhagen Bay

Danish police say they have discovered the head and legs of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who disappeared in August while doing research for a story on self-taught engineer Peter Madsen.

The freelance journalist was last seen alive on 10 August when she went to interview the inventor Peter Madsen, who has been charged with her murder.

Her torso - minus her head, arms and legs - was found on a beach on Amager Island near Copenhagen, 11 days after she took a trip on his homemade submarine. He has been detained for a further four weeks while the body parts are investigated to try and establish a cause of death.

The gruesome discovery, contained in plastic bags, was made on Friday near the place where Wall's naked, headless torso was located earlier in August, Copenhagen police spokesman Jens Moeller Jensen told journalists on Saturday. Police identified it as Wall's and said blood inside the submarine matched DNA samples retrieved from her hairbrush.

At the time of her death, Wall, 30, was working on a story about Danish inventor Peter Madsen. He slipped and lost his grip on the hatch, which then hit her on the head, he said.

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

Madsen was later arrested and held in custody on suspicion of killing Wall.

Mr Madsen, 46, denies murdering her. The creator initially asserted he had dropped Wall off ashore the evening of August 10, as indicated by a police explanation.

Wall, a graduate of Columbia University and London School of Economics, was based between Beijing and NY. A capable author, her work showed up in The New York Times, the Guardian and TIME, among productions.

Wall studied at the Sorbonne University in Paris, the London School of Economics and at Columbia University in NY, where she graduated with a master's degree in journalism in 2013.
