Kim Wall, left and Peter Madsen. He denies the assertion and has called her passing a mischance.

Her head was found in a bag that also contained two legs, Copenhagen police inspector Jens Moller said. Identification was based on dental records from Sweden, he said.

"We found a pack with Kim Wall's attire; shirt, skirt, socks and shoes, and furthermore a blade and lead pieces burdening them", Moeller Jensen said.

However, the police reported that the body was discovered 15 injuries.

DNA tests from Madsen's nails, face and neck showed a clear match with Wall's, Buch-Jepsen said, though the exact cause of death remained unknown. During a press conference organised on Saturday 7 October, officials have revealed that divers have recovered the head and the two legs of the journalist Swedish 30 years, which were in a bag located in the bay of Køge, near Copenhagen.

Madsen has told the court in past hearings Wall died accidentally, saying she was hit by a heavy hatch cover on his UC3 Nautilus submarine.

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

Wall worked as a freelance journalist based in New York and China, and her articles were published in the Guardian, the New York Times, and others.
