Danish police have located the dismembered head of Kim Wall, the Swedish journalist who died in mysterious circumstances onboard a homemade submarine.
Copenhagen police investigator Jens Moeller told press on Saturday that they have found Wall’s head, legs, and clothes in a plastic bag, according to multiple reports. The bag also contained a knife.
Wall was last seen alive in August entering a homemade submarine, the UCS Nautilus, with its owner and builder, a Danish inventor named Peter Madsen. Her torso was washed up in Copenhagen later in the month.
Madsen has been charged with manslaughter, which in Danish law implies murder, and he is currently in pre-trial detention. He claimed that Wall died when a metal hatch hit her on the head and “suicidal psychosis” caused him to throw her body in the sea.
Police said on Saturday, however, that there were no fractures in Wall’s cranium, Reuters reported. Prosecutors have also revealed that Wall’s torso was stabbed with syringes during the submarine death.
Madsen was rescued after the submarine sank on August 11. He originally said he had dropped Wall off in Copenhagen alive before the sinking, but he later changed his account to say she died in an accident aboard the submarine.
