Danish divers have recovered the missing body parts of Swedish journalist Kim Wall


Danish divers recovered the head, legs and clothes of a Swedish journalist who was killed after going out on an inventor's home-made submarine in August.

Copenhagen police investigator Jens Moeller Jensen told the Associated Press that the body parts and clothing were discovered Friday, not far from where 30-year-old Kim Wall's naked, headless torso was previously located.

Authorities noted that the body parts and clothing, as well as a knife, were secured inside plastic bags which had been weighed down with "heavy metal pieces."

Jensen added that there were no fractures to Wall's skull, but declined to comment on the discovery of the knife.

The fact that Wall's skull didn't show any signs of a fracture contradicts the story 46-year-old Danish inventor Peter Madsen told police. He previously told investigators that Wall died after accidentally being hit by a 155-pound hatch on the UC3 Nautilus submarine.

“It was a terrible accident, a disaster, no doctor could have done anything,” Madsen previously told a court, according to The Guardian. “Kim was severely injured. There was a pool of blood where she landed. I touched her neck, but she had no pulse.”

Police, however, say they found 15 stab wounds on Wall's torso.

The journalist's arms are still missing and police have yet to determine her official cause of death. Marks on Wall's dismembered torso, according to police, indicate someone may have tried to press air out of her body so it wouldn't float.

Madsen has denied manslaughter charges, but is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 31.
